Previously, I shared with you the prayers of a little girl making a difference in my friends’ boys’ life. That same little girl, in her faithful prayers every single night, Today, I want to tell you about Shane and Bear.
Shane is the son of the pastor who married us and his wife. He is about six months older than our oldest daughter. We have known his parents for many years and consider them among our closest friends.
Shane is a very special young man, and when he was young, they got a dog and named him Bear. Shane and Bear were very close, and Bear was very good for Shane. One day, Bear got hit by a car, and it didn’t look like he’d survive. This would have been devastating to Shane so his parents asked for prayers. We, along with many others, prayed for Bear, and miraculously, he survived his injuries. To this day, our youngest continues to pray for Shane and Bear.
Shane is in college now, and Bear is getting up in years, but still looks forward to Shane visiting. Prayer kept Bear around for Shane when it was really, really important for him to have dog to love him unconditionally.
How much we all need someone to love us unconditionally! Dogs are awesome in that regard, but then, so is God – it’s crazy to me that he loves us no matter what.
Thanks for your prayers!
