Kody (our dog) ran out in front of a car today... she was playing in the front yard with Kaleb and chased a cat across the road apparently. Kevin and I were gone, but Kaleb came to get us. Kevin rushed home on the motorcycle and brought Kody in to the yard. She didn't look good and we called the vet. We sat beside her and petted her and cried. The vet confirmed our suspicions: she wouldn't survive. She's been a great dog, a great part of our family for almost 6 years now. We'll miss her. We already miss her.

Funny how one pain brings out another, how you cry for one loss, but really for many-- for the fact that we live in a fallen world where there is pain and suffering. For the suffering of others. For all the things in life that go wrong.

And while you cry, you long for something better. For a world that is promised to us, for a reality we're really going to. For eternity, which God Himself has set in our hearts.

Garry left for Manila this morning, and it didn't help much to deal with it alone with the boys. I'm so thankful for cell phones and that we can stay in touch anyway.
