My beautiful god-dog recently went back to her heavenly home after 14 wonderful years in a house filled with love. Truly one of the best dogs ever.
She was a golden retriever with a heart of gold that matched her coat. I still can’t figure out where she hid her wings.
In loving memory of Lacey Beasley:
“For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten son…” He also gave us dogs, and I think He specifically chose Lacey for the precious Beasley family.
I believe Heavenly Father usually sends dogs to people who need to learn and to feel the meaning of His greatest wish and rule for us — unconditional love. He knew this family already lived that commandment; they not only felt it, but they give it and live it. He knew Lacey would fit in well; she would help them share the message. She felt it immediately — because that is how this family rolls.
With her lesson quickly learned — she was able to live a beautiful and funfilled life. She was there for babies being born. She was there when loved ones transitioned to the other side. She was there for their laughter. She was there for their tears. She loved birthdays, Christmas, Easter, Super Bowl parties or any other celebration that brought her human family and their friends together. She was the gold at the end of their never-ending rainbow.
She recently crossed over and started her next journey where she was surely greeted by those who have already passed. One day, she will cross Rainbow Bridge and onto the path of gold which leads to the kingdom of heaven.
For those of us who remain here on this earthly plain, we can take comfort in knowing we truly were in the presence of an angel. She was the true reminder that DOG is simply GOD spelled backwards.
“I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to myself, that where I am, you may be also.” John 14:2-6
Have fun in heaven, Lacey — you will be missed by us all and equally loved by the other angels. Our life on Earth was so much better with you in it. We will carry your love in our hearts, forever, in dog years.
Happy Tails to You!
