|Special needs St. Francis with mostly blind Glory!|
Thankfully, his emergency neuter surgery to correct his prostate issues successfully eradicated that medical issue, but his age is showing. Moving around can be a big challenge, to say the least. Disc issues combined with old age make life a lot less enjoyable than it used to be. In fact, he has taken plenty of tumbles since arriving at Walk by Faith Ministry.
I learned long ago that there is a time to let go no matter how much I love a dog, and I carefully monitor the super seniors and the special needs dogs to make sure my love for them is not selfishly holding onto them when they are suffering and have reached the point of needing to head home to heaven to be with the Lord. Fortunately, because I work from home and the weather has been warm and beautiful in coastal South Carolina, St. Francis gets plenty of love, attention, and fresh air. More than anything, he loves his special bed where he can keep an extra close eye on Mommie. Please keep St. Francis and Mommie in your prayers as St. Francis moves closer to heaven.
Lara, God placed you in this special boy’s life to at long last – after 14 hard years – show him the love which he was always entitled to, as his birthright… and you have shown him that love, as no other ever has – blessing your life as well as his, in the process…
“Greater love hath no man…”
Thank you for letting him know he was so cherished…
I have been trying to find an article like that forever.
