We’re mourning a loss in our family. Our precious fur baby passed away on the 22nd of January and our lives are so different without him. He had diabetes and cancer that was very aggressive. He was 91 years old in people years, and had a wonderful long life with us. The 13 years he was with us were the happiest of our lives – that’s for sure.
I hate disease… just flat hate it!
What a beautiful prayer my friend Mark wrote:
Dear Jesus, Divine Physician, Healer of the Sick.
We call upon You and ask Your help for our loved ones
Who are suffering from cancer.
We entrust them to Your loving care.
They are Your children and they are in pain.
Give them the ability to know in their hearts
that You are with them in this difficult time.
Give them strength and healing.
Comfort them in their fears,
soothe their anxiety,
and let them rest securely in Your arms.
Help those who care for them.
Give insight to researchers that they may discover cures.
Give patience and energy to doctors and nurses so that
they will care for them with grace and love.
For us, their families, their friends and their community,
we need Your courage and strength,
to be with them and help them bear their burdens.
Give us joy, peace and confidence in You
so that like Mary, Your mother,
we may stand with them in faith and trust,
witnessing to Your healing love.
For you are blessed, for ever and ever.
In Jesus’ Name, Amen – Mark Farouk
I received a sweet poem from Lucinda Berry Hill and it brings me comfort – thinking of God’s heaven and eternal life always brings me comfort. Thank you, my sweet friend!
We don’t have children, therefore, we don’t have grandchildren. I like to think that Casey is in heaven playing with all the little children there! If you’ve read the book, “Heaven is For Real” or seen the movie, you know that little Colton saw his family in heaven – but they were young, not old. All the residents there are free of pain and the burdens of this world. It’s selfish to want them back here, isn’t it?
I’ll miss my furbaby – I won’t lie. He had the sweetest disposition (like his mama – lol). He loved everyone and never growled at anybody. When people came to the house, Casey was just sure they were there to see him, not us! Such a funny little fella… I’m gonna miss him, but he’s not in pain and is at peace. God will take care of him… and He will take care of us too. 🙂
