Cookie, a precious little ShihTzu dog is a miracle story!
Cookie is a miracle story of how God preserved a faithful Catholic family from experiencing tragedy and loss on Christmas Eve. I love dogs and my dog is a very important part of my life. I have other beautiful experiences with dogs but this one rates very high on the scale.
Little Cookie was run over by a car right in front of me. It happened as I was walking my dog in my mom’s neighborhood on Christmas Eve.
Cookie’s family were having a Christmas Eve party with friends. The little dog ran onto the street, presumably to play with my dog, when a car struck her. It was horrendous and traumatic.The car’s tires actually drove over little Cookie’s abdomen.
There was a great commotion as everyone came running to the scene. I simply knelt next to her on the street where she lay and started praying fervently. When her daddy took her limp little body into the house I followed him and prayed over her again.
I was in tears as I continued to walk my dog after the accident, crying out to the Lord for His miraculous power to heal and restore. I feared Cookie’s internal organs might be terribly mangled with internal bleeding because of the way the car rolled over her. The car actually stopped right on top of her until we screamed to the driver to advance!
How would this family, on the day they were celebrating the birth of Messiah, be able to endure the loss of their little dog? When I got home I continued praying and singing hymns of praise. I read out loud three Bible accounts of resurrection and claimed those promises:
- Elijah raising the widow’s son
- Elisha raising the Shuunamite woman’s son
- Jesus raising Lazarus
At bedtime last night my family prayed with me on behalf of Cookie’s family, and again this morning I went to the Lord in prayer. At noon I went over to Cookie’s home to find out how she was doing.
You can’t know the joy I felt to see her in her mommy’s arms! That she’s alive is in itself a miracle. But by the amazing grace of God Cookie seems to have only a fractured leg and a bit of shock from the traumatic experience.
The God of Life, the Resurrection God, who has the keys of death and hell, who has all authority in heaven and on earth, has performed this beautiful miracle.
Please lift up your voice in thanksgiving and praise to God for great love and mercy. God is SO FAITHFUL to those who are His. He preserved this lovely Catholic family from experiencing tragedy and loss on Christmas Eve.
Merry Christmas! Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.
