Sunday Pause (Paws): What Would Jesus Post?

It’s Sunday! Time to kick back and relax.

This is a bit more serious type post than the usual “light” posts I try to do on Sundays. But when I write posts the ideas usually come from something that happened the previous week.

It started from last Sundays sermon at church that was titled “What Would Jesus Post?” It got me thinking about how there is so much negativity and ugliness out there on social media. There is also a lot of negativity and ugliness in the world. Of course there is good too. But often the bad is focused on more than the good as I find the news is, which is why I do not watch news. We are bombarded with messages that put fear in us, make us worry, feel angry, and so on.

As my pastor said the world is actually suppose to be a preview of what’s to come. We are not suppose to live as if this is all there is until the world ends. We are to live heaven on earth now. So what will heaven be like? No more pain, fear, fighting, abuse, illness, and so on. OK…so we can’t make ALL that happen now but we can do our part to try to live our lives as God intended. We can practice loving one another and loving dominion over the earth and the animals. When we do that we bring a little bit of heaven to earth.

Sunday Pause (Paws): Our Fellow Beings

It’s Sunday! Time to kick back and relax.

I still do not have internet set up yet. Hopefully it will be all set up tomorrow. But for now I’m doing my best to post from my phone.

I wrote a short poem that I thought went good along with an image I put together on my phone for my social media pages.

Sunday Pause (Paws): For Change

It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, and sometimes in our lives…embrace change.

This has been a tough week/weekend for me because our time is coming to an end in our current home. I didn’t think I would feel so emotional. I’m really concerned about how Cino will do with this move, although in time I know she will get adjusted, as I will. Change can be exciting but it also can be scary.

With moving day very near I don’t have a lot of time to write this post. We’re buried in boxes but we wanted to peek in and say HI!

Happy Sunday!

We can make a change for the future of animals…

Another change for us is we are now on Instagram. Hope to see you there!

Sunday Pause (Paws): The Job Given To Us

It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, and take a little time to think about the job given to us in regards to animals.

I‘m so busy with packing that I will once again be keeping this post short. I wrote a short poem and created the following image. I hope you enjoy.

God’s creation entrusted to usĀ 
There’s really nothing to discuss
He made it clear and said to care
For all his animals everywhere

Sunday Pause (Paws): Just Ask

It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, and ask for help.

We all need to ask for help sometimes, but it isn’t an easy thing to do. I am going through a very trying time with purchasing a townhome. Through the process there have been ups & downs, highs & lows, and feeling like I’m going crazy. It’s still not over (help).

Even though I fall to my knees in tears at times and beg God to help when it doesn’t feel like he is, I really know he is. Maybe it’s me not listening to him.

This is the same for helping animals. Sometimes it feels like we’re getting nowhere, but we are. Sometimes we feel like God isn’t helping us with this, but he is.

I pray all the time for no more abuse
But then comes another horrible case
It brings me to tears and I feel helpless
So I ask for help in my quiet place

Sunday Pause (Paws): For Farm Animals

It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, and take in the truth, even if it may be difficult.

I like to try to keep most of my Sunday posts more on the light side. But my blog is about being a voice for animals. So, I apologize, but today I am writing about a serious topic…the treatment of farm animals.

It came across my Facebook Newsfeed about the undercover investigation at Fair Oaks Farms and the abuse of calves there recorded on video. I couldn’t bring myself to watch the videos. I got the gist from all of the headlines and comments.

Abuse of farm animals is not uncommon. They get away with it because it happens behind closed doors. We see the “happy cow” commercials, but I don’t think there are a whole lot of actual happy cows on factory farms. Even the word “factory” gets me. Animals are not objects to live in a factory. God made them to live, play, graze, move, and BE with other animals. He didn’t create them for abuse and mistreatment by his other creation…us. This has to stop!
