Picture is of Dr. Steve Hopkins checking on Buffy. I wanted to share a picture of true love with you, at the bottom of this post. Buffy, our oldest doggy passed onto doggy heaven late yesterday afternoon. The picture is of little Reno showing his love for his adopted Mommy, Buffy, before her passing. What can we all learn from this picture? There is purity in the love that dogs have. I pray that purity over all of mankind. God teaches is in His word in Proverbs 12:10: A righteous man cares for the needs of his animal. That is a command by our Lord as He gave us our animals not only for joy, but to teach us what true love is, what true loyalty is, what true honesty is…..I also say to all of us if we think our animals love us, times that by a billion and that is not even close to how much the Lord loves you and I. Buffy lived a wonderful 14 years. She helped me in ministry by showing others love, she melted the hearts of many to open the door to the one true God. Buffy really administered love to people with cancer showing them love. As my friend Sonja Hademan told me, “Beginnings and endings are always the hardest…..what’s in between is the best!” Amen…..Buffy’s in between was sweet as cake, she gave much. Everyone loved Buffy, from babies to the elderly…she showed them love. Sharon and I and Reno will carry on here at FGGAM to soften hearts for our Lord Jesus Christ. Our thanks to Dr. Steve Hopkins, who is retired but wanted to be with Buffy as he was her first vet, and Dr. Kacie Martin of VCA Wyoming here in Albuquerque for coming to assist Buffy and us at our home. Dr. Steve and Kacie showed us the true meaning of compassion. We thank the Lord for such friends. We also thank the many other friends that we have that have shown their love to us and understand the true love bond between man, women and doggies. Buffy went so very peacefully……….just as she went through life, peaceful and loving. Thank YOU Lord for your creation, Thank you for your gift to us of animals. Pictured below Reno hugging Buffy goodbye, and then a picture of Buffy taken a few months ago. In closing I want to encourage us to love more, show the world the love of Jesus Christ, have more compassion for each other and what people are going through, be honest with each other, most of all be obedient to God, be fully obedient to God’s Word. Show the World the one true God, our Lord Jesus Christ. Walk the walk of Jesus Christ. Buffy has made my faith in Jesus Christ stronger than ever, Buffy has helped me become a much better man of God. Amen.
