Salute to Sarge

This past week we lost a very dear and loyal friend. "Sarge" was of the canine family but was just as much a part of our family as any human. His sole job was to protect his owners and that he did very bravely!

Through the tragic death of our pet it has prompted several conversations with our six year old son (Camron) about if Sarge is in Heaven. Which led me to search scripture more and to dig deep into God's word about pets in heaven. Although, I have yet to find anything that directly states that pets will be heaven, I believe God has given some wisdom and comfort in my search. In Genesis, God did tell Noah to take his family and two of each animal on the Ark before He flooded the earth...God must have cared about the animals as well, correct? Revelations 5:13 "Then I heard every creature in heaven and on earth and under the earth and on the sea, and all that is in them, singing: "To him who sits on the throne and to the Lamb be praise and honor and glory and power, for ever and ever!" - God's word states that all creatures will be praising and honoring God! Ecclesiastes 3:18-22 was really good reference as well. There were several other scriptures but these really spoke to my heart. Now, I know the bible was written for the salvation of mankind and even if it did say something directly about our pets, it would not do them any good because they can't read. But it is comforting to know that God created certain animals as pets for humans to love and bond with. When we love or hurt for our pets, God does too because He cares for us. He loves us and I believe He cares enough about us that in His AWESOME greatness, that He would be capable of having such a place for pets and animals in Heaven!

Until we see Sarge again, we salute him for his love and loyalty to our family...."Good Boy Sarge"!!! We love you and miss you greatly!

In The Beginning

2 Cor. 5:17 "Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old is gone and the new has come!"

In the beginning....,Thank you Lord for creating the heaven and the earth! But I would like to share about the beginning of a boy and girl. A girl named Tonya and a boy named Rodney. They fell madly in love with each other and started a life together. They had not been married very long when they welcomed their first son into the world. A few short years later, a second son was welcomed into the world and family. This boy and girl had not surrendered their life to Christ so it was not long before the world was eating them by the mouthful. Sin had taken over and the marriage was nearly doomed. Their lives were being destroyed right before their very eyes. God sent just the right people to speak through and use to help this couple. Because of their surrender to the Lord, Jesus Christ, God was able to heal and restore a broken marriage. God didn't stop with restoring their marriage..He amused them once more by blessing them with yet another son. By this time, God had really started a good work in Rodney and Tonya. God was taking the clay and molding it to His likeness and image in each of them. And they lived happily ever after.......

Correct, we are living happily in our marriage today but like anyone else, there are still times of trial and growth! We continue to lean on the everlasting arms of Jesus. God has blessed Rodney and myself beyond our dreams. We are so thankful for God healing our marriage and for blessing us with three wonderful boys. Ryan - 17, Justin - 15 and Camron (better known as "Camo") 6. I look forward to sharing future post with you regarding what God is doing in my life as a G.I.R.L (God Inspired Reborn Lady) and to hopefully encourage and inspire when God sees fit. Trust me, as a daughter of the King and with a house full of males...there is never a dull moment and God is always up to something!
