The Seasons in Our Lives

There's always a new season that comes! Spring, Summer, Fall and Winter. But, have you ever thought about the seasons that come into our own lives? We have seasons of celebration; seaons of sorrow & grief; seasons of illness; and seasons of good health. As we walk through this journey called life, we will experience various circumstances in our lives and in the lives of those we love. When we said, "good-bye" to our precious four-legged friends, we entered in a season of grief. We were numb. We were in shock at the thought that our pets had to die. But, the truth is that our pets have not died. They are in heaven with their creator - with our creator. They are with God. And, one day we will be reunited because of the grace of God sending His son Jesus Christ. He paved the way for you and me.

The good news is our seasons of grief will become seasons of joy and happiness. The season will pass, just like Winter, Summer, Spring and Fall pass us by. It's only for a season. But, through your season of grief, give yourself permission to cry when you need to and honor your furbaby. And, remember, your season will pass, but the memories of your beloved pet will never pass. He or she will live within your heart, forever! May God richly bless you. See you at our next support group gathering.
