STOP SCROLLING. This is such a beautiful story. Please read and reblog.

A 14-year-old dog Abbey died last month. The day after she passed away my 4-year-old daughter Meredith was crying and talking about how much she missed Abbey. She asked if we could write a letter to God so that when Abbey got to heaven, God would recognize her. I told her that I thought we could so, and she dictated these words:

Dear God,

Will you please take care of my dog? She died yesterday and is with you in heaven. I miss her very much. I am happy that you let me have her as my dog even though she got sick.

I hope you will play with her. She likes to swim and play with balls. I am sending a picture of her so when you see her you will know that she is my dog. I really miss her.

Love, Meredith

We put the letter in an envelope with a picture of Abbey and Meredith and addressed it to God/Heaven. We put our return address on it. Then Meredith pasted several stamps on the front of the envelope because she said it would take lots of stamps to get the letter all the way to heaven. That afternoon she dropped it into the letter box at the post office. A few days later, she asked if God had gotten the letter yet. I told her that I thought He had.

Yesterday, there was a package wrapped in gold paper on our front porch addressed, ‘To Meredith’ in an unfamiliar hand. Meredith opened it. Inside was a book by Mr. Rogers called, ‘When a Pet Dies.’ Taped to the inside front cover was the letter we had written to God in its opened envelope. On the opposite page was the picture of Abbey & Meredith and this note:

Dear Meredith,

Abbey arrived safely in heaven. Having the picture was a big help and I recognized her right away.

Abbey isn’t sick anymore. Her spirit is here with me just like it stays in your heart. Abbey loved being your dog. Since we don’t need our bodies in heaven, I don’t have any pockets to keep your picture in so I am sending it back to you in this little book for you to keep and have something to remember Abbey by.

Thank you for the beautiful letter and thank your mother for helping you write it and sending it to me. What a wonderful mother you have. I picked her especially for you. I send my blessings every day and remember that I love you very much. By the way, I’m easy to find. I am wherever there is love.

Love, God

Don’t say you’re too busy to forward this. Just go ahead and do it.

Comment if you cried while reading this! I cried like a BABY! Cause' I remember feeling like this when my dogs would die when I was at that age. IT HURT. This is so beautiful!

Inspriational Godly Qoutes by Moi.

Haven't blogged in a while, so here's one for you guys that love God.

"You shouldn't only go to God when you need something from Him. You should always be in the Lord, ready to be used by Him to witness about His love unto the world. That's like loving your parents only when they buy you a new toy or lift your grounding punishment from you. Does that sound right? You can only answer this question yourself, and only you and God will really know what your answer really is."

"You can't endure others' burdens, because it'll add more to your own. Sympathize, but not let them take you over. Don't let your heart on your sleeve bleed for that one person you cannot do anymore for. Leave it up to God. He'll take care whatever that needs to be taken care of.
Give your heart to others that need your help even more, the ones that will listen to you and your advice. Sometimes you have to let things take its course, and let God be the fate of that person in mind. Keep in mind, you can only do so much. God is the only person who can do an infinite MORE."
