Divine Intervention Story
The Heaven Sent Dog
What do you buy your soon-to-be 86 year old mom for her Birthday?
This divine intervention story about the heaven sent dog was the answer to my prayers.
Two and a half years ago, my mother fell and was paralyzed from the neck down. Eventually, she regained the use of her body except for her right leg and hand.
As a result, she cannot walk, knit, sew, write, cook, etc. Her days are spent sitting, reading, watching television and sleeping. She gets very frustrated that she can't be on her own and she misses her friends in Ohio.
So what do you buy your soon to be 86 year old mom for her birthday? She has what she needs and doesn't want anything. Several times I heard her tell someone else that she wished she could have a small dog to sit on her lap. But, she knew she couldn't because she couldn't take care of one. I got permission from Dennis, my husband, to look for a small dog. Calling was tiresome and I got more recordings than real live people! I was becoming discouraged and said a very short prayer as I finally hung up the phone. "Lord, please help me find the right dog, and soon."
The next day I drove Mom to Mount Vernon to go to Wal-Mart and have lunch. On a fluke, I stopped at Petco and gave Mom a reason for my running into the store. I talked with a young lady who worked there and asked if she knew where I could look for a small dog:
** with a good temperament,
** who was not a puppy and was good with children and babies,
** who was not a barker,
** who was house-broken and very well behaved.
It was necessary I have a dog like this because I have plenty to do already. After my little speech, she looked at me and said, "I think I have the dog you're looking for. You see, I'm moving and I'm looking for a good home for my dog." Scooter came to live with us two days later. He's a very cute little, brown Chihuahua Pomeranian mix. Mom was very surprised when I carried the little dog in and sat him on her lap. We all love him and it is as though he's always lived here!
God hears and answers our prayers, both large and small, sometimes exactly the way we ask, but not always. But, He always always answers - in His time, in His way, and His way is always best.
"Call upon me and I will answer thee and show thee great and mighty things which thou
