Matthew 5:4 English Standard Version (ESV)
4 “Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted.
Job 12:10 English Standard Version (ESV)
10 In his hand is the life of every living thing
and the breath of all mankind.
Our pets have grown old in this house of the level path. We recently found and buried the remains of our very good but very old cat who disappeared one day this summer past. Now my husband's dog, our funny, faithful rescue dog, is suffering from lymphoma and we know we will have to put her down before long. I believe it is good and right to grieve over our animal companions but also to trust God for their care and keeping.
But it's hard...ever so hard.
