Unconditional Love

This is Day 16 of a 31-Day Series called Bear in Mind: Cubisms.

I don’t have any cubisms to share today.  At least not from the normal four cubs that I’ve been talking about. Today’s cubism is about my first cub dog, Kodi.

Kodi passed away last Sunday.  We expected it as she had lost the ability to use her hind legs and she was barely eating and drinking.  Even so, Sunday was such a hard day.  Yesterday we picked up Kodi’s ashes, and this morning we had a little memorial service for her.  All of the cubs and Poppa Bear (PB) shared funny memories about her.

Kodi slept by their cribs to let us know when they started to cry. 

Kodi used to tattle on them if they were doing things that she knew wouldn’t be acceptable to us.  

They made up games and would include Kodi.  

We laughed about how fast and hyper she used to be.  

She loved french fries, and you could find her camped out under the table waiting for food to drop from our plates.

We loved her and I sure do hope that she felt it.

“Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud or rude. It does not demand its own way. It is not irritable, and it keeps no record of being wronged. It does not rejoice about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out. Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance.”  ‭‭1 Corinthians‬ ‭13:4-7‬ ‭NLT‬‬

  1. I’m so sorry about your loss. It sounds like she brought a lot of joy to your lives. Even though it was expected, I’m sure it was still difficult to accept. Your family will be in my prayers for comfort and strength during this time.
