“Abby” Over The Rainbow Bridge…

“Abby” Over The Rainbow Bridge…

Our 14-year-old dog Abbey died last month. The day after she passed away my 4-year-old daughter Meredith was crying and talking about how much she missed Abbey. S

Meredith asked if we could write a letter to God so that when Abbey got to heaven. God would recognize her. I told her that I thought we could so, and she dictated these words:

Dear God,

Will you please take care of my dog? She died yesterday and is with you in heaven. I miss her very much. I am happy that you let me have her as my dog even though she got sick.

I hope you will play with her. She likes to swim and play with balls. I am sending a picture of her so when you see her you will know that she is my dog. I really miss her.

Love, Meredith

We put the letter in an envelope with a picture of Abbey and Meredith and addressed it to God/Heaven. We put our return address on it.

Then Meredith pasted several stamps on the front of the envelope because she said it would take lots of stamps to get the letter all the way to heaven.

That afternoon she dropped it into the letterbox at the post office. A few days later, she asked if God had gotten the letter yet. I told her that I thought He had.

Yesterday, there was a package wrapped in gold paper on our front porch addressed, ‘To Meredith’ in an unfamiliar hand. Meredith opened it.

Inside was a book by Mr. Rogers called, ‘When a Pet Dies.’ Taped to the inside front cover was the letter we had written to God in its opened envelope. On the opposite page were the picture of Abbey & Meredith and this note:

Dear Meredith,

Abbey arrived safely in heaven. Having the picture was a big help and I recognized her right away.

Abbey isn’t sick anymore. Her spirit is here with me just like it stays in your heart.

Abbey loved being your furry loved one. Since we don’t need our bodies in heaven, I don’t have any pockets to keep your picture. So I am sending it back to you in this little book for you to keep and have something to remember Abbey by.

Thank you for the beautiful letter and thank your mother for helping you write it and sending it to me. What a wonderful mother you have.

I picked her especially for you. I send my blessings every day and remember that I love you very much. By the way, I’m easy to find. I am wherever there is love.

Love, God

Don’t say you’re too busy to Share this. Just go ahead and do it

You will all be happy to know this wonderful story is 100% true. Please don’t take offense to the reference of God, it’s part of the story.

Driftwood Treasures Travel Far Out to Sea from Lands Far Away…

Very old driftwood piece finished to capture your imagination… Zoom in for close look, imagine with me…

I Just finished this Mindfulness Meditation Creations piece from Little Whale Cove. Zoom in for a closer look. It landed in my hands after the storm..

These driftwood treasures literally fly in with a tsunami like King Tides. Waves so large and winds so strong guide all things to shore. Things that reach our shore for the very first time.

If you don’t discover driftwood treasures right after the storm, they rush back out to sea. The next storm is coming again soon. With the enormous king tides during the winter months, they fly away, never to be found again…

The old driftwood pieces we find on the beach after the storm, are pretty worn, torn and old as the sea. Imagine how old. And, where it came from, so far away…

Did this piece come from an old tree branch in the mountains high above? Did it bounce and glide its way on stream down to the sea?

Did It travel the oceans for many decades, before flying in from the sea to land in my hands. Imagine with me…

But, what if it came from a sunken Pirate ship? Maybe, it crashed and sank off the coast in another time, long ago?

I think that’s it. Maybe it is. Imagine with me for a moment… Pirates from long ago…

There are 100s of sunken wooden sailing ships of old off the coast. Look at the coast on my YouTube channel and imagine with me how traders and pirates slammed into the basalt cliffs and rocks off shore…

Some of these rare treasures landed in Big Whale Cove. Sir Francis Drake, was one such famous explorer from Spain. It was the 16th Century, when he and his glorious sailing ship landed at the Cove near Depot Bay…

No doubt, Sir Francis Drake was greeted by the love and kindness of Chief Depoe of the Siletz Tribe. Imagine with me for a moment…

What is it, or something else? What do you imagine. Tell me on the CHAT button…

I continue to be inspired and moved by the journey of driftwood treasures as they fly into the Cove. After the storm, is the best time to find treasures in the Cove…

What treasures will I see next time? What will you see at your secret Cove? I can’t wait to get down to the Cove next time…

Please join me on my journey of history and discovery of unimaginable things that touch my soul. Imagine with me for a moment. Imagine again with me. Breathe…and imagine again…

Until next time, imagine worlds and treasures yet to be discovered. Yet to be seen… Imagine with me for a moment…
