About Me quiet, simple, slow in pace, most of the time content with my life despite the many losses I have lived through. Spiritual, leaning on God. Contentment and thankfulness I have found at the other side of grief and a fight for survival. I have seen that for what could have been detrimental, God provided protection and good on the other side of pain. Each day I know I am blessed. Now I see God ask me to give back to others, as my close friends gave to me and as God has given to me.

Wild Fact About Me I never wanted 5 cats, but friend was in a desperate situation and was going to put down her two 9 year old cats as she had nowhere to house them. I took them in for her, thought I'd never manage it, but it IS working and I love them dearly. Someday she hopes to take them back and I will then miss them much.
My Philosophy "Food for Thought": Something I thought about today -- It's not so much what you possess, how rich you are, or how much you have accomplished on this earth. Our life here is only half the journey, but how you treat others and the kindnesses you practice is important. What matters is what you have to look forward to in heaven.
In a dream I was in a foreign country around a poor father and his children. Although I too was not well off, I offered to buy his children clothes. He refused. I did not understand. Then I sat on a lawn by a lake with his son, and the sun rays were so close to us. His son opened wide his arms & said, "This is why we call this place, "Los rayos del sol" (the rays of the sun). Later I realized the meaning ... the earth will provide clothing and shelter, food and water, sunlight and the cloak of night. They did not need western man's riches. They just needed the earth and its Creator to be cared for.
I feel we should give back in life to what we have been given. If we have been blessed in some way, and if we are able to later give to another help, we should do so. Like kneeling by a stream, cupping water from it and drinking it, we should give that water back to the earth. (metaphorically)
What Gives Me Hope Heaven; God's light.
Seeing my cats and friends again in heaven or the other side. Romans 8:28- end of chapter. Seeing others and my cats happy.
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by Regulate utility companies, lower these outrageous electric and gas bills, protect the poor and elderly from their service being cut off. Make housing more affordable.

Passions cats and nature, my Christian beliefs

Quotation God's Eye is on the Sparrow -- I came across this quote or message 31 times in 1999. I'd open a book and it would be there. Turn on the radio, and it would be there. It's been 47 times up to this year 2009. God watches over even the little, insignifcant sparrow and watches over each of us.
