Smokey (2000-2009)




Satan clenched his fists in frustrated wrath. How many times had he come here before? How many times had he been humiliated in front of these poor excuses for angels? “Your creation suffers,” he said, spitting out the words in fury. “It suffers still even after you tricked me at Golgotha. Do what you will, but I have the last laugh. They suffer and you can do nothing.”

The Voice spoke again and in spite of its thunder, there was a sense of sadness. “You know as well as all that with freedom and choice comes the potential of revolt and loss. All are tested, even Myself.”

“They think you don’t care.”

“Not a sparrow falls without My knowing.”

Satan leered into the Light. “But they fall nonetheless.”

“And they fall into My Hand.”

With that, a gigantic hand—its fingers closed securely—materialized from the Light. It opened and a small sparrow, bright and redeemed flew into the Throne Room.

Rainbow Bridge
If I were a songwriter, I'd write a song inspired by this poem


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
