CHRISTMAS AT THE RAINBOW BRIDGE

by Ginny Brancato.........................................

 

CHRISTMAS AT THE RAINBOW BRIDGE

As the midnight hour approaches on Christmas Eve, a tremendous

celebration begins. If you listen closely you will hear the exuberant sounds of glee as each Bridgekid joyfully prepares 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 sound 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 and jump high in the air in anticipation of this most joyous event.

Nestled in the midst of this happy choir of Bridgekids are the littlest one's who have just entered the Bridge staring in awe at the majestic Christmas tree adorned with flowing strands of angel hair. Twinkling stars seesaw elegantly from the sky and land in glorious harmony upon the evergreen limbs of Heaven's most perfect Christmas tree.

 


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, amidst the warm glow of candlelight which rises from the earth below.

 

The arms of the Bridge Keeper envelopes the heavens and into the precious hands of each furbaby 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 each and evey Bridgekid warming their hearts with beacons of radiant light and bringing forth angels and their exquisite choir.

A huge sound is heard throughout Rainbow Bridge as the clock strikes midnight.

The distance between heaven and earth is vanished. It is at this very moment on Christmas Eve that our blessed Bridgekids sends a message to their earthly loved ones on the wings of this unbridled love.

Listen carefully with an open heart. You will hear your own furchild or feathered friend whisper softly into your ear their Christmas message..

 

"Mommy, Daddy, when you need me know that I am there. 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 send my gift of LOVE to you this Christmas Eve night and always. Take my LOVE and give back kindness and compassion to those on earth hurting, in memory of my LOVE, until the day comes we greet each other once more in ecstatic reunion. I love you, I love you!!"

Hi TimTam,

I understand. It's my first without Murphy, too. We had 9 Christmases. It's never enough. My heart is broken into millions of pieces.

I'm glad you enjoyed the Christmas Eve message. Ginny included it in the candlelight ceremony this evening.

Blessings,
Murphy's Mom (Kathryn)

Hi Kathryn,
Thank you for posting this.  I hope that their Christmas is as special as this poem suggests...they deserve happiness.
It is a very difficult time of the year for us all...I am trying so hard to be grateful and to focus on the memories that I have, but I just want Bellsy back to share Christmas day with her.  I know Christmas Day will be hard to get through without shedding some tears.
I hope that we all have loved ones to share the day with and lots of beautiful memories to think of.

I wish I could join in the Candlelighting ceremony.The first two weeks after I lost her I was able to because I wasn't at work.The timing in Australia clashes with work_11AM here.Next year may be different but this year I couldnt even put the tree up because she loved to sit under the branches.I really hope Tammy visits me in my dreams even after 18 weeks I still havent seen her.I have a few videos on my phone so I can still hear her bark and watch her-but no dream.Merry Christmas to everyone
