Possible crown and dying dog
« on: October 15, 2010, 01:32:16 PM »
On Monday I either have an inexpensive filling or a $570 crown. It depends on how well the cusp of a tooth with a cavity under a filling holds up.

One of my best friends is going to lose her beloved dog to a tumor disease that often leaves dogs with 6 weeks to 6 months to live.

May the beloved dog be crowned with a peaceful, pain-free death; and may your tooth need to be filled only with the love of God.   :angel:

My other best friend is feeling really sick, little fever, shivery, nauseus, loss of appetite, body not feeling like getting out of bed.

My sister just lost her beloved dog to a form of cancer. She had to put her to sleep yesterday, and is terribly sad. While pets are not human, they still provide deep companionship, loyalty, and love to many people. The goodness of God can be seen in such innocent and faithful creatures.

"Lord have mercy."

We just lost our dog (old age).  May the LORD be with your friend.  And may the LORD strengthen your tooth.

I pray things go well for you tomorrow, Anastasia.  I pray for your friend and her dog too.

Lord, have mercy.
"If you are going to serve the Lord, be prepared for times when you will be put to the test. Be sincere and determined. Keep calm when trouble comes. Stay with the Lord; never abandon Him and you will be prosperous at the end of your days. Accept whatever happens to you. Even if you suffer humiliation, be patient. Gold is tested by fire and human character is tested in the furnace of humiliation. Trust the Lord and He will help you. Walk straight in His ways and put your hope in Him. " Sir 2:1-6

Lord have mercy.

My family lost our dog Luma in 2007. She had been with us for around 16 years. She died a lady's death. She had cancer for quite some time. That day she was not well all day long, breathing hard. She started having some sort of crises in the evening and we took her to the vet. The vet said she wouldn't have much time and gave her something to sooth the pain. We went back home. She quietly came out of the car on her own, walked by herself to her sleeping cushion and there she died peacefully.
Many Energies, 3 Persons, 2 Natures, 1 God, 1 Church, 1 Baptism, and 1 Cup. The Son begotten only from the Father, the Spirit proceeding only from the Father, Each glorifying the Other. The Son sends the Spirit, the Spirit Reveals the Son, the Father is seen in the Son. The Spirit spoke through the Prophets and Fathers and does so even today.
