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!

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): They Feel, We Feel

It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, and “feel.”

I‘m feeling pretty proud of the number of shares the following image I made has received so far. It is the most shared image of mine to date so I wanted to share it with you and talk a little bit about the word “feel.

All animals do feel the same as your pet. They feel pain, fear, loneliness, sadness, boredom, stress, happiness, comfort, and love (to name a few). 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
