Skywatch Friday

June 26, 2009

I haven’t had a skywatch photo in awhile,  I raised puppies and then got busy and the El Paso summer skies are mostly just blue.  We had some rain the other day and there was an amazing double rainbow.  I only had the camera on my phone and these don’t do the sky justice.  For more wonderful skies check out Skywatch






The same day as the rainbows a dear friend lost her beloved dog.  We were together when we saw the rainbows and I told her it was her girl letting her know she was waiting at the Rainbow Bridge.

Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.

When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge.
There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together.
There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.

All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor; those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by.
The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.

They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent; His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.

You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.

Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together….

    These photos look beautiful even if they were taken with a camera phone, which does of course mean the sky must’ve been even more crazy awesome. The Rainbow Bridge story is also very nice, and one that your friend will likely keep with her.

    It’s always lovely to be able to catch a rainbow. And lucky you to have mainly blue skies!
