|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
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 envelope 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 and 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 thatI
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."
Rainbow hugs and love headed down the beautiful Rainbow ... open up your hearts and take it all in ... we love you, always and forever!
