It’s Okay to Cry

It's Okay to Cry

By: Dani

Our sweet dog is gone – like gone forever! I thought I would never get to see him again. I am just so sad that those people just think that a little eight month old puppy will hurt them.

Yes, he did bark and hair went up, but that just means he is just protecting us because he does not know them. They are strangers to him.

He did not hurt them. He just barks, so they said that they are scared of an eight month old puppy! So Grandpa had to give him away. I knew he went to a good home, but I didn't know where. Grandma didn't know where he went, either.

One day Grandma and I went the Amish store and Grandma saw a dog. She said, "Be careful, there's a dog."

So I opened the door and Kiah, our dog, ran at me and jumped into the truck. He sat in the backseat, just where he used to sit. I was crying so hard and saying, "No! No! No!" I was so shocked.

There he was in the truck, ready to go home. But we could not get him out of the truck.  It was so hard for me.

I met his new owner. He is a friend of Grandpa's. He's an older man who just lost his best friend – a dog, like Kiah. This man got Kiah out, but he did not  want to leave us.

Gramma went in the store by herself so I could have my time alone with Kiah. I got him out of the car. When it was time to go his owner had to hold the dog back because he tried to run after the car.

When we got home I ran to Grandpa and told him Kiah was there. I was still crying and he said he knew.

I was still crying and I will never forget that day.  🙁

PS It's okay to cry!

    God says he bottles up our tears, and one day every tear will be wiped from our faces. I wonder what he'll do with those stored up tears? I know it will be good, as good as the promise that there will be no more tears.

    No more tears, God says…. that means no more good-byes, no more misunderstandings, no more divorces or molestations or abuse or bullying or injustice!

    I know it sounds like relief seems so far away, at times, but I see part of the work God's doing in your life right here and now, Danielle… how He's carving out a deep well of compassion in you.

    You are one of the most BEAUTIFUL people in the world, and the most beautiful people are formed by trials.

    I know God's doing something with those tears. He even created tears! I wonder if we can do a study on tears and find out more about their purpose and what God plans to do with them?

    Danielle, I am so sorry that Kiah could not stay with you but I am glad that you got to see him again and that he is with a good owner that seemed to have been in need of a companion. 

    It may seem hard to understand why you had to give Kiah away but everything happens for a reason and maybe it was a blessing for that man to get Kiah since he had lost his other dog – his best friend. 

    I love you!
