Today was a grim day for my friend Sarah. Her 2.3lb white chihuahua, Pixie, died today after she was in a car accident. She and I are in a world of hurt. This dog was the sweetest animal you could ever meet in the world.
A world that makes you question why we pray sometimes. Her little pups skull was fractured, and her brain was swollen from the car collision. An airbag apparently hit her hard.
No matter how many prayers you say or post, you still will question the existence of God when these uncanning events occur. Personally, I hate when life challenges tend to challenge your faith in God. It is at these moments when we truly see our inner selves. Looking at yourself and God with such scrutiny.
For example, I have a colleague couple who lost their son at the age of sixteen because of suicide. He couldn't take the heart ache a girlfriend he had fallen in love with. This couple appeared to never waiver in their faith for God for a second. They continued to pray despite the woes they endured.
I pray that I am never tested in this fashion because I feel weak. I do not see myself as a leader in this arena. So many come to Post a prayer to pray for healing and guidance, and they too seem to be unwavering in their commitment to God. I tip my hat to them souls, and post prayer for them to be blessed.
Completely on another note, I am in the process of trying to get a car reaffirmed just before a bankruptcy and feel this tends to test my beliefs. I am trying to reaffirm a car that was my mother's who now has stage four cancer. The vehicle has sentiment value to me. One thing is sure, and I always tell myself, the lord provides. He provides us with our daily bread. I turn my hunger over to God and let God have it. I have for along time.
Sad day here today loosing that four year old dog though. Very sad. I pray God brings our animals or pets to the promise land with us. They play such a big and important part in our life.
I recently went Vegan for the simple fact that I did not want one more animal to die for my sake or hunger. I feel great because of it. It is a new challenging way to live life. My unexpected reward was loosing about ten to fifteen pounds. I have slimmed down a bit.
As for my friend Sarah, I will ask that you do pray for her, and to maybe even post a prayer on her behalf because she hurts, bad.
God bless you.
