His name is Faith
shared with you by the Lighted Path
I got this in an E-mail and it touched my heart, not to mention I needed a tissue. Yes my dear Light Workers in these days of soaring homelessness and hurt. In these days of less food, even less money and at times such loss of hope it kills the soul there are still “signs” about us. Signs that lift us up from the places where we lay face down in the muck and dirt. Signs from the Light that fill our hearts and souls with hope and renew our faith that all will work out even in the worst situations. With this in Mind I give you this sign.
His name is Faith! This dog was born on Christmas Eve in the year 2002. He was born with 3 legs - 2 healthy hind legs and 1 abnormal front leg which need to be amputated. He of course could not walk when he was born. Even his mother did not want him.
His first owner also did not think that he can survive. Therefore, he was thinking of 'putting him to sleep'. By this time, his present owner Stringfellow met him and wanted to take care of him. She is determined to teach and train this dog to walk by himself. Therefore she named him 'Faith'.
In the beginning, she put Faith on a surfing board to let him feel the movements. Later she used peanut butter on a spoon as a lure and reward for him to stand up and jump around. Even the other dog at home also helped to encourage him to walk. Amazingly, only after 6 months, like a miracle, Faith learned to balance on his 2 hind legs and jumped to move forward. After further training in the snow, he now can walk like a human being.
Faith loves to walk around now. No matter where he goes, he just attracts all the people around him. He is now becoming famous on the international scene. He has appeared on various newspapers and TV shows. There is even one book entitled 'With a little faith' being published about him. He was even considered to appear in one of Harry Potter movies.
His present owner Jude Stringfellew has given up her teaching post and plans to take him around the world to preach that even without a perfect body, one can have a perfect soul'.
In life there are always undesirable things. Perhaps one will feel better if one changes the point of view from another direction.
May We all have such enduring Faith!
.Have Faith the Light Will WIN the END
