It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, pray, and think of others.
Today would you consider taking a pause for the wounded?
Many are wounded, people and animals alike. 100% why I have this blog going is mainly to bring awareness to the sad fact that there are so many “wounded” animals. Whether it is because of abuse, neglect, carelessness, or simply because people don’t see them as living, feeling beings.
Wounded obviously means more than just physical. We (& animals) are wounded inside too. Sometimes spirits are crushed, feelings are hurt, and sometimes its a mental health issue.
There is the current devastation of Hurricane Harvey. No doubt there is and will be many wounded from this, physically and emotionally. Please keep the people and animals affected by this in your prayers.
Then, there is me. You could say I am currently wounded by the loss of my sister. Wounded but healing!
Below is a recent poem I wrote. I added the butterfly picture because butterflies are also living, feeling beings and I noticed it had a piece missing from its wing. I have had this picture for a while and used it before, but just noticed the piece missing. I am not sure if the butterfly was actually wounded or not, but it seemed fitting to use it for this post. I edited the butterfly picture and, of course, added the bandaid.
Now here is my poem “Is This Real?”
All wounds will heal if we allow them to. Those affected by the hurricane will heal in time, but need our prayers now. I will heal from the loss of my sister and animals will heal when we step up to help them.
So…in the busyness of life, please keep in mind the wounded.
Note: Tiya is also one of the wounded, over the loss of Henry. In case you missed my last Tuesday Tale, please check it out.
