Archive for February 26th, 2012

I was thinking to myself the other day, what it would be like, if you could write a letter to Heaven, ask questions that you were never capable of understanding and receive good fulfilling answers? As I browsed through memories full of people and more or less special events, I realized how many of them were to this day unclear. Getting that one true answer perhaps might have solved the “forgive and forget” puzzle that keeps haunting me for years.

What:

Jeans: Zara.

Shoes:  my mom’s treasure.

Sweater: Cholckhouse .

Bracelet: e-shop www.eleja.lt

Omg item: “Jeans by Zara. When everyting’s dull, grey and wet I miss colours the most. During the cold season, streets are crowded with black coated people. Exactly at that time, we miss the sun and the colours the most! So I have decided to break the ice and bring colors back to the dayligt, despite the cold. And I love the intensity of this blue – not a ababy blue and not a navy blue – the golden middle”

Who: Pictures taken by Aurelija Apulskienė

And as miracles occure, I have stumbled upon this delightful letter shared on Facebook. This is by no means written by me neither I am claiming any copy rights over it. I would simply like to share it as I found it, totally unedited.

“Our 14-year-old dog Abbey died last month. The day after she passed away my 4-year-old daughter Meredith was crying and talking about how much she missed Abbey. She asked if we could write a letter to God so that when Abbey got to heaven, God would recognize her. I told her that I thought we could so, and she dictated these words:

Dear God,

Will you please take care of my dog? She died yesterday and is with you in heaven. I miss her very much. I am happy that you let me have her as my dog even though she got sick.

I hope you will play with her. She likes to swim and play with balls. I am sending a picture of her so when you see her you will know that she is my dog. I really miss her.

Love, Meredith

We put the letter in an envelope with a picture of Abbey and Meredith and addressed it to God/Heaven. We put our return address on it. Then Meredith pasted several stamps on the front of the envelope because she said it would take lots of stamps to get the letter all the way to heaven. That afternoon she dropped it into the letter box at the post office. A few days later, she asked if God had gotten the letter yet. I told her that I thought He had.

When: 24t of February, 2012

Yesterday, there was a package wrapped in gold paper on our front porch addressed, ‘To Meredith” in an unfamiliar hand. Meredith opened it. Inside was a book by Mr. Rogers called, ‘When a Pet Dies.’ Taped to the inside front cover was the letter we had written to God in its opened envelope. On the opposite page was the picture of Abbey & Meredith and this note:

Dear Meredith,

Abbey arrived safely in heaven. Having the picture was a big help and I recognized her right away.

Abbey isn’t sick anymore. Her spirit is here with me just like it stays in your heart. Abbey loved being your dog. Since we don’t need our bodies in heaven, I don’t have any pockets to keep your picture in so I am sending it back to you in this little book for you to keep and have something to remember Abbey by.

Thank you for the beautiful letter and thank your mother for helping you write it and sending it to me. What a wonderful mother you have. I picked her especially for you. I send my blessings every day and remember that I love you very much. By the way, I’m easy to find. I am wherever there is love.

Love, God”

Where: Countryside of Antalgė village, Utena, Lithuania.

I was so touched by this story! I loved the post officer who made time and effort to send a reply to this little girl. I am sure it brought a great amount of joy, faith and love into her life.  This made me think about how wonderful would it be to have an actual and real mail line with God?

What would you tell him if you could? What questions would you ask him? Would you bare to open the answering letter?…

Yours truly,

Vaiva K.
