Christmas at Rainbow Bridge

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
As the midnight hour approaches on Christmas Eve, a tremendous
celebration begins.

If you listen closely you will hear the exuberant sound of
Bridgekids preparing for the remarkable moment that comes but
once a year.

Puppies romp through the tall green grass, chasing butterflies
and rolling over and over until fits of giggles bring them to a
tumbling stop.

The volume increases as kittens, cats, tigers and lions purr in
pure delight while the wings of snow white doves gently caress
the air.

The babbling brook that runs beneath Rainbow Bridge overflows
onto the edge of mossy banks and fins of treasured aquatic life
quiver in anticipation of this most joyous event.

Nestled in the midst of this happy choir of Bridgekids are the
littlest angel tots staring in awe at the majestic Christmas tree
adorned with flowing strands of angel hair.

Effervescent, twinkling stars seesaw elegantly from the sky and
land in glorious harmony upon the stoic limbs of Heaven's most
perfect Christmas tree.

Swaying to and fro in nearby rocking chairs are grandmothers,
grandfathers, parents, aunts, uncles and loved ones.

The sound of their whispered lullabies permeate the air as they
sing to tiny angel babies resting quietly in their arms.

Like magic the clock approaches midnight and a great stirring is
heard in the distance.

Each Bridgekid stops and listens, knowing the time is near, and
they choose a fleecy cloud on which to snuggle.

The roar of purrs drops to barely an audible hum, the babbling
brook ripples hypnotically and the flutter of downy feathered
wings fall silent.

Heaven's spirited toddlers climb expectantly upon the laps of
angels while babies coo in tranquil unison.

Amidst the warm glow of candlelight, which rises from the earth
below, the arms of the Bridge Keeper envelop the heavens and into
the precious hands of each child and in front of each

animal a holy gift is placed.

With grand exuberance the ribbons are removed and left to fly on
a tender breeze where they dissolve into showers of angel dust.

As the golden lids of these heavenly gifts are raised, an amazing
aura fills the sky, reaching down to the very core of the earth.

Ascending from each and every box is the greatest gift of
all. unending, unconditional, all-encompassing love.

This blessed love gently wraps itself around the cherished souls
of heaven, warming their hearts with beacons of radiant light and
bringing forth from angels an exquisite chorus.

As the clock strikes midnight the distance between heaven and
earth is vanished.

It is at this very moment on Christmas Eve that the Bridge
Keeper, His children, angels and Bridgekids send a message to
their earthly loved ones on the wings of this unbridled love.

Listening carefully with an open heart we will hear the familiar
voice of our own angel whisper softly into our ear their
Christmas message...

"Let me share with you this love of mine, always and forever.
When you need me know that I am here.

I have not left you for I am in your heart where I belong.

Our love is eternal as is the brilliant glow of candlelight, which
illuminates the path to the heavens and Rainbow Bridge.

I wait patiently as do you for our inevitable and glorious
reunion. I love you, I love you, I love you."

You seem to have cornered the market on heart-wrenching & tear-jerking (I mean that in a good way).

Thanks for this!

Merry Christmas!

Thank you for posting that lovely description! I'm missing my departed companions terribly, but I know they are at peace; and in spite of my failings and shortcomings that part of them which remains in my heart is radiating an inconditional and innocent love which surpasses all understanding.
