“Until one has loved an animal, a part of one’s soul remains unawakened.”
I am a firm believer that my furry friends, both past and present, have enriched my life in numerous ways. Some of my very best memories include time I have spent with my pet buddies.
I was raised with animals. My family had pets in the house as long as I can remember; cats, dogs, a rescued racoon, duck hatchlings, a rabbit, a snake, fish, gerbils, and guinea pigs. As I grew older and began raising a family of my own, I have also chosen to share my home with rescued dogs and cats. As many people who rescue animals know, it is really you who is being rescued.
Being chronically ill, pets have a very special place in my life. Spending much more time at home and in bed then the average person, I have had the blessing of spending a lot of time with my pets. Virtually every time I have felt too bad to get out of bed, my doggie curls up and lays right next to me. There is something especially relaxing, calming and comforting having a living soul breathing next to you.
The question this week is, Do you have pets, if so what type and how do they enhance your life?
Wishing you a day of peace.
Through the sounds of the seasons
Allowing us to hear His mighty roar through a storm
His gentle touch from the falling rain
His whispers through the wind
His guidance through the moon
His infinity through the heavens
See His beauty in the autumn landscape
His attention to detail within a butterfly
His peace through the face of a sleeping child
And His genius in creating the fascinating, stunning, genuinely original, and lovable YOU ~
the rustling of leaves holding tightly to their branches
the crunching sounds of fallen leaves under your feet
the whirling of the leaves dancing in the wind
and geese honking their good-byes overhead
the lonely cry of an owl
the cool rains that fall down from heaven
the music of this magical season…………..

i stand outside as the storm begins to rage
the thunder rolls in sending animals scattering,
yet i don’t move,
shaking the earth under my feet,
my body quakes with fear as the world around me appears to shatter into pieces,
strikes hits too close leaving me cowering in a heap,
can i within stand the storm,
can i endure the constant barrage of raging winds and ravishing rains that beat at my body……..
no place to run,
no place to hide,
not only from the storm but from myself.
i am soaked to the bone,
cold to the touch,
immense fear engulfs my mind
is shelter worth searching for,
my soul cries out for comfort,
yet, do i need saving?
