Psalm 34:18 The Lord is close to the broken hearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.

And there is 7....
We lost our peanut, the runt today. Honestly I'm suprised she made it after birth. The size of a mouse, she fought the fight for 5 days. All life is precious to God. This little one, a favorite, she had a fighting spirit but she was just to tiny. They call it fading puppy syndrome. We hand fed her but she stopped thriving and yesterday I felt something wasn't right. I know all God creatures have a place in heaven. Growing up I always heard from many that dogs don't have souls so they couldn't go to heaven. That grieved my spirit, why create something and have no plan for it's death.
Job 12:10 says; In whose hand is every living thing, and the breath of all mankind. God holds all life, knows the sparrows and sings with the wild flowers. I know this little "peanut" is fully restored in heaven. I say all dogs go to heaven. So today I am sad and a bit broken but not crushed or destroyed, 2 Corinthians 4:8. God has a plan and it is good. A hope and full future. It will be well in my soul and I will praise my God in grief.
