“Yesterday our family made the hardest decision a pet owner ever makes. We had to put our beloved St. Bernard Daisy to sleep. She was 9 1/2 years old and was one of the most enthusiastic, happy, lovable members of our family. We prayed and prayed that God would take her to heaven and asked our friends to pray for us as well so that we could deal with our grief. This morning, when my husband walked out to the car, this was in our driveway. What else can I say? With a light dusting of snow, and two unsuspecting neighborhood boys who picked up our high schoolers for school, God answered my prayers. I know he’s caring for our girl! My heart still aches for our loss, but there’s peace in it that wasn’t there before. God is great, all the time.”
