There is a God in the Post Office
A Story of a Child’s Love for her Pet

Our 14-year-old dog, Abbey, died last month. The day after she died, my young 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. Here is her letter:

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 play with balls and to swim. 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.

Yesterday, there was a package wrapped in gold paper on our front porch addressed, “To Meredith”, in an unfamiliar hand writing. 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. I recognized Abbey 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

I have no way to know who sent it, but there is a beautiful soul working in the dead letter office of the US postal service.

I’m interested in any thoughts or comments that you have about this very touching story.

        Hi Cliff,
        You inquired if “all was well with me?” and then I see you did open my HSP Newsletter and the first article is about my Father’s passing, so things could be better! To leave a reply to our already established conversation, I still had to fill in the Name and eamil again? That’s a little odd, don’t you think?
        Hope you have a Happy Easter weekend!
        All the best, Jim

          I’m sorry about your father’s passing. I know exactly how you feel because my mother passed away a week before her
          90th birthday in July. I’m in the process of making major changes in my life. I hope that time will help both of us heal and better go on with our lives.
