THE LORD IS MY SHEPHERD



Of all the animals, man is the only one who is cruel.
He is the only one who inflicts pain for the pleasure of doing it
......Mark Twain

Out of suffering have emerged the greatest souls,
the most massive characters have been seared with scars
......Khalil Gibran

I have been driven many times upon my knees
by the overwhelming conviction that I had
nowhere else to go
.....Abraham Lincoln

There is no way to peace, peace IS the way.

You don't know how strong you truly are,
until being strong is your only choice.

Be still and know that I Am God.

Listen to yourself and in that quietude you might hear the voice of God.....Maya Angelou

The punishment that brought our peace was on Him,
and by His wounds we are healed.

I have a terrible time getting over the death of my animals.
I do not grieve well.  How can my heart be broken when it wasn't whole to  begin with? Sometimes this quote helps -
Don't cry because it's over, Smile because it happened
..........Dr. Seuss.

To all my friends...........
I apologize for not knowing how to post photos and graphics
on your profile pages as lovely as the ones you post on mine.
I thank my husband for all you see on my billboard. 
I am so grateful to know all of you.

About Me Currently, we live on a meadow and woods filled 85 acres, 45 miles south of Buffalo. I have fostered hundreds of cats, dogs, birds and wildlife, some becoming permanent family members. When my beloved cat/soulmate, Percell, could not be healed by conventional medicine, I turned to Reiki and homeopathy. I am a grateful student and teacher of these amazing God-given healing modalities. They have strengthened the bond to my own spirituality and to my relationship with animals.

Wild Fact About Me Intensely shy, but never show it. I really can talk to animals. I'm known to "connect" with a lost animal and tell their family where to find them.
My Philosophy Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. Don't judge others until you have walked in their shoes. Don't waste your time with people who do not bring out the best in you.
What Gives Me Hope Seeing more people using holistic healing on themselves and those they care for, including animals.
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by Teach that compromise is not a weakness. Listen more, talk less.
What/who changed my life and why My college professor, Marilyn and my Reiki teachers. They made me kinder and gentler. Dr. Samuel Hahnemann's homeopathy work, through my incredible veterinarian, continues to save my animals and me, physically and spiritually.

    Two minutes of peace after a long busy day. And I'm thinking of you. I'm sorry about your loss. All this will end up making sense I'm sure. One day we will get to understand why we had to go through all of this to see the light.

    Yesterday, the French National Assembly voted to give animals a new legal status. Instead of being the equivalent of a piece of furniture, they now are "living sentient beings". I wonder which adjective they had the hardest time figuring out that it took so long?
