Buffa Has Earned Her Wings...
After much suffering the past 10 days for Buffa. she was released from her pain by God, not by a vet or man, but by God she is now free in heaven. Our world was blessed to have her here for 17 years.
A week after her 17th birthday, she began her downfall but has risen to be with Jesus now. The peace one receives as a christian is truly amazing. Years ago, when my 17 year old poodle, Jyoti, died, I was a "hot mess" because I did not have Jesus my savior. In a puddle almost every day and night crying and wishing he was back. There is such a huge contrast from then and now and God prepared me for Buffa to leave in seeing her suffer so much. Every night her sounds of crying were almost unbearable. I held her close to me, we were always inseparable and had I not seen her suffer & had I not been saved, it would've been much harder to let her go. Although Jyoti suffered in seizures for over a week, I didn't have that kind of peace when he left. It is only through faith that we can realize that our loved ones are at peace with the Lord. Without faith, there is nothing to hang onto. Whenever, I start to feel sad, the holy spirit wraps his peace around me and my heart stops being pinched, it softens and cools by his presence. I didn't have this with my previous dog, Jyoti, I wasn't saved then. I tried so many different belief systems and they were all a dead end. It is only when you have Jesus that you are truly protected and at peace. He is the only one that will have your back and I learned it the hard way. Just knowing she is in heaven with the Lord Jesus gives such great comfort. Its like your grandmothers quilted comforter that is made with so much love, only more.
2 Corinthians 1:3-12 KJV
Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort; Who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God.
"He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death’ or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.”

1 Thessalonians 4:13-14 Brothers and sisters, we do not want you to be uninformed about those who sleep in death, so that you do not grieve like the rest of mankind, who have no hope. For we believe that Jesus died and rose again, and so we believe that God will bring with Jesus those who have fallen asleep in him.
1 Thessalonians 4:17-18 After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever. Therefore encourage one another with these words.
Inspired by the Song, "Scars in Heaven" by Casting Crowns, I created a movie about Buffa. May she resting in peace in the hands of the Lord Jesus Christ of Nazareth.
Isaiah 41:10 Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
