Do Something

It’s Sunday! Time to kick back and relax. But not for too long because the world needs you, me, WE.

I heard a song recently called “DO SOMETHING” and thought it was perfect not only because that is what I am doing for animals and encouraging others to, but also it seems perfect for the times.

I wrote a poem a while back in this image below and it has the same message the song does. We wonder why God isn’t doing anything. His reply is that he is. He’s waiting for us.

Snow, Cold, and Animals

It’s that time of year and we’re buried in snow again.

We actually had blizzard warnings. We have it all: snow, wind, and freezing temps.

Here is a little view out our window facing parking lot. The snow plow guy is out there hard at work clearing them. Continue reading

Sunday Pause (Paws): Animal Paladin

It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, read a little poem and meet Cino as dun, dun, dun, dun…Animal Paladin!

(In case you don’t know, because I didn’t, Paladin means leading champion of a cause, hero, devoted to kindness.)

TRYING TO SAVE THE DAY

Animals of all sizes and shapes,
The dogs, cats, lions, and apes
Intended by God to be blessed,
And instead are being oppressed
Listen up, don’t you fear,
The AAFBT team is here
With Super Animal Paladin,
Doing a lot of the battling

Sunday Pause (Paws): Cino’s Prayer

It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, and how about saying a prayer.

I made a new cartoon image of Cino. Since our goal with this blog is to advocate for animals I thought I would introduce the image with Cino in prayer.

That’s exactly what I want…no more abuse! Unfortunately, that may not happen in this Continue reading

Sunday Pause (Paws): Focus On Something Else

its-sunday-aafbt

It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, and turn the focus on something else.

I‘ve been experiencing a wide range of emotions lately. Part of it is getting older, feeling less patient, and worrying about my future. I know there are changes I need to make in my life, yet it can be so confusing and scary.

Then there are politics, the state of our country, so much violence, all the negative news reports, etc., etc., etc. It can all make you crazy!

I‘ve been reading a book for work called “Managing Emotional Mayhem.” According to what I read it makes me wonder if most of us grew up not ever learning how to deal with our emotions properly.

So is the fact that my emotions have been all over the place because Continue reading

Sunday Pause (Paws): Helping A Family & Their Dog

It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, and consider extending a helping hand for a family & their dog.

I know this is a different kind of Sunday post from what I normally do but helping animals is my mission. When I read the post an old coworker had out there about her dog, Mack, I felt I had to try to help.

Her dog has been taken from her family and is currently at a boarding facility because of some incidences of him getting out of the house or yard and running up to people or other animals and scaring them. Continue reading

Make A Change With Love & Prayer

I wrote the following poem this morning because there was a shooting near me last night. As some of you know writing poetry helps me release feelings. It is so hard to hear about all of these shootings and think about the current state of this country and our world. It seems we can’t go a week without hearing of a shooting and most of the shootings are by students. A change is needed and it’s not always just the law that needs to change.

It seems to be our new reality
A shooting here, a shooting there
The only way to change this
Is with love and prayer

Laws will always be broken
Causing many people despair
The only way to change this
Is with love and prayer Continue reading
