Sparks: 18

When I began blogging, it was my intent to post an inspirational thought each Monday. It would be my weekly meditation, and perhaps feed another’s spirit as well. I am inspired by the positive energy of my peers.

The negative energy in the world has become thick and oppressive. Social media has become a part of this dark, negative storm. There is an obvious universal need for more positive energy. And, we can all be part of this affirmative change.

I believe we are meant to be lights in this world. If we allow our light to shine, we can see where we are going. It is then that we can begin to truly see each other clearly. Together, we can light up the entire world!

I hope you will join us, and invite others to. Link up your positive quote, or inspirational words. Please be sure to add the Sparks badge to your post, so others can find it easily. Peace.

Miss Phoebe’s Shades

Recently, we got a small package in the mail. When we opened it, we were happy to see that it was Miss Phoebe’s Traveling Shades! Wow! The girls were pretty excited to have their turn with these special shades. George and Clyde were unimpressed. “Girl stuff.” They would not sit still for any of it. 
Grizelda decided they were far too small. Bee was afraid they were way too big. Maggie fell asleep, so she ended up missing most of the fun. However, Chloe Jo was thrilled. She thought they made her just like Easy Rider. She absolutely loved the shades.

Kenzie declined to wear what she felt was clearly cat accessories. However, Chloe Jo’s best friend is Stella, so she tried on the shades. Suddenly, Stella was just like Joe Cool.

Thank you, Miss Ellen. We were very honoured to wear Miss Phoebe’s shades. It was bittersweet to be able to use something that was special to her and to you. We appreciate being a part of the Phoebe’s Traveling Shades Tour. The glasses have respectfully been passed on to the next participants.

Animal Rescue Blessings

One of my greatest blessings has been to participate in animal rescue. This goes back to my childhood. We first rescued a guinea pig, who was being relegated to perdition. Following her, throughout my life, there have been various raccoons, opossums, rabbits, rodents, birds, numerous reptiles and amphibians, fish, a skunk, a monkey, and naturally, cats and dogs. I have been blessed.
One of these wonderful blessings was a litter born on Thanksgiving, November 25,  2010. These kittens were rejected by their very young and very ill homeless mother. Her rescuer was not able to care for their needs and her, too. That is when they came to me.
This litter of four were the most pitiful babies I had cared for. They were extremely ill, too. For weeks we had humidifiers running for them to help ease their congestion. They were given antibiotics and nose drops. I was feeding them every 1-2 hours with a syringe because they could not nurse normally. I was also doing chest thumps on two of these babies. I had to help break up the congestion.

God’s hand was in this, as always. Two kittens went on to be adopted by a young couple. We kept the two black kittens, otherwise total opposites. You know them: Grizelda and Chloe Jo. They just celebrated their seventh birthday! 

~Happy Birthday, Girls!~

I have so many reasons for doing animal rescue. This is what moves me: to see them survive and then to thrive. This is the reward. I am humbled by God’s faith in me. I am honoured by the animal’s trust. I am happy to be a part of their journey. I love each and every one of them. And, I am grateful for the lessons they have all taught me and continue to teach me.

Sparks!

When I began blogging, it was my intent to post an inspirational thought each Monday. It would be my weekly meditation, and perhaps feed other people’s spirit as well. Now, I feel a strong need to bring this feature back.

The negative energy in the world has become thick and oppressive. Social media has become a part of this dark, negative storm. There is an obvious universal need for more positive energy. And, we can all be part of this affirmative change. 

I believe we are meant to be lights in this world. If we allow our light to shine, we can see where we are going. It is then that we can begin to truly see each other clearly. Together, we can light up the entire world!

I hope you will join me in this positive energy movement. If you want to join me in this weekly offering, please make me aware of it in the comments. I invite all of your comments, but please be kind. Peace.
