My Page Billboard

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.  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 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.
