We Have A Choice

I recently created the image below to post on Facebook. Then in my “Facebook Memories” I was reminded of a poem I wrote last year. So I put the image and the poem together and walah…a blog post. 🙂

WHY I DO WHAT I DO

People often wonder
Why I do what I do
I say they wouldn’t be asking
If they knew what I knew

Seen as “one of those”
But do they know our case
Animals are living, feeling beings
Have you looked close into their face?

All Are In His Plan

Sometimes I create images that say it all for the post.

Even THEY have been in his plan. The question is are our eyes & ears open to what role we are to play in their life?

Sunday Pause (Paws): An Animal Is An Animal

It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, and take a moment to think about animals…really.

I recently read about a day created by The Anglican Society for Animals calledAnimal Welfare Sunday” which is today. It looks like they encourage churches to speak about animals and God’s intent for them.

I think this is great and I wish there were more discussions and sermons in the church about this.

“God gave us dominion over animals, but I truly believe the human race has misinterpreted this and that he, along with us, is grieving over the treatment of animals in our society.”
(A quote from my ABOUT page)

I have always loved animals. I grew up with an adorable black toy poodle and if friends or family had pets I could always be found wherever they were. But it wasn’t until I took the time to learn about how our society treats & uses other animals that I made some important lifestyle changes.

I Can’t Let It Be

I can’t even bring myself to read the full story about the dogs & roosters rescued from a place in Wisconsin. I read the dogs had wounds & scars and the roosters were surgically altered for fighting. That was all I could handle and I can barely handle that.

It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, and for today take a look at how great cats are!

I love all animals, but this past week cats seemed to take the spotlight.

I‘ve been reading the book “The World According to Bob”, the second book by James Bowen about him and his cat Bob. I lost track of the book for a while and had been searching for it looking in and under everything. I even looked in the fridge & freezer in case I put it there absentmindedly. Well I found it…right on my night table shelf by my bed. It had been there the whole time, but that’s another story. 🙂 Continue reading
