{Faith Journaling} Challenge #88

We see many instances of angels in the Bible. Tuesday, 8/16/2011, while on vacation, we had to put one of our beloved dogs down. It has been very hard for us especially since we were not there. But God gave me an angel yesterday morning as I rode my bike to the beach. It is something I will always remember, and I say thank you to the Lord and "Mr. Bojangles." So today,

**How has God given you an angel or guarded you with His precious angels during a difficult or fearful time?

Psalm 91:11-12 "For He will command His angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways; they will lift you up in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone."

How comforting to know that God sends His angels to watch over us. Remember, to find all previous faith journaling questions, please see this post here. And may you rest in peace now my precious Dusty! Blessings,

Sorry you've lost your pet. We had a similar situation when we had our dog put to sleep on the 2nd day of our holiday. We didn't meet an angel but God certainly provided us with 5* accommodation on several nights following.

Patter, so sorry for you loss. Praise God for giving you just what you needed to help you heal in this time of sorrow.

I am extremely sorry for your loss. I do know how that feels; our dog died very unexpectedly last year while we were on vacation, as well. Our angel, I guess you could say, was that the breeder had another litter of puppies already on the way, so we had something to look forward to, which helped ease the pain somewhat.

So sorry for you loss. I am anticipating one of my favorite cats passing in a few months as he wastes away from diabetes. It's so hard to lose our precious companions - even the furry ones. Gentle hugs to you

Awwwww! I had a Keeshond when I was little. He was so gentle and beautiful! My condolences!

Patter, so sorry to hear of your loss. It is very hard to make those really tough decisions for our unconditional companions. But it is our responsibility to love and care for them. My oldest rat terrier recently had to have emergency surgery and was so afraid I was going to lose her. But I knew I couldn't allow her to suffer either. I prayed to the Lord to keep her safe and he did. She recovered this time but I know there will come a day when I will have to give her over to him to care for eternity. God bless you through your loss and give you peace.
