Legend of the Rainbow Bridge
Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.
When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here,
that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows and hills for all
of our special friends so they can run and play together. There is
plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and
All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and
vigor; those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again,
just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by. The
animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each
miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.
They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly
stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent; His
eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying
over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.
You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally
meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again.
The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the
beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your
pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.
Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together....
When I Got My New Dog
I asked for strength that I might rear her perfectly;
I was given weakness that I might feed her more treats.
I asked for good health that I might rest easy;
I was given a "special needs" dog that I might know nurturing.
I asked for an obedient dog that I might feel proud;
I was given stubbornness that I might feel humble.
I asked for compliance that I might feel masterful;
I was given a clown that I might laugh.
I asked for a companion that I might not feel lonely;
I was given a best friend that I would feel loved.
I got nothing I asked for,
But everything that I needed.
Every evening as I'm laying here in bed
This tiny little prayer keeps running through my head
God bless my mom and dad and bless my little pup.
And look out for my brother when things aren't looking up
And God, there's one more thing I wish that you could do
Hope you don't mind me asking but please bless my computer too?
Now I know that's not normal to bless a mother board
But just listen a second while I explain to you 'My Lord'
You see, that little metal box holds more to me than odds & ends
Inside those small compartments rest a hundred of my 'BEST FRIENDS'
Some it's true I've never seen and most I've never met
We've never exchanged hugs or shared a meal as yet....
I know for sure they like me by the kindness that they give.
And this little scrap of metal is how I travel to where they live.
By faith is how I know them much the same as you
I share in what life brings them from that our friendship grew
"PLEASE" Take an extra minute from your duties up above
To bless this scrap of metal that's filled with so much love!
