Staying Aloft   1 comment

I pray to not let the churning of the world’s endless disturbance

Deter me from the sacred space I share with Thee

Listening for the song of Your Spirit calling

In concert with all Creation

Attention on the promise of Your peace and Your protection

Overcoming darkness in the light of Your reflection

Mining the goodness in each other

Living because of Your unconditional gift of Love

That multiplies with every offering of thanks

Precious Petunia the Pit   2 comments

After walking Petunia one morning – I took a seat on the third step of the staircase in our home while Petunia sat on the floor before me – Leaning over, my arms crossed, to rest on my knees, I surveyed more closely her moist, red and swollen paws … my heart full, ideas spent, praying what to do.

My partner Lisa, and I had exhausted all we knew — Vets, medicine, sprays, baths, and even boots that only contained the bacteria and prevented healing from the burns caused by her abuse as a six month old puppy.

It was then, Petunia, licked my toes, that overlapped the soles of my sandals, and held me with the gaze of her warm golden eyes. Like a spotlight in my mind that tethered hers to mine, I felt her say, “I need sandals, like yours, when I go out and play.”

That made sense — her pads would be protected and her feet would have air to heal.  It was then the journey to find the special shoe maker began and led us gratefully here…

Your earth, Your creatures, like a broken toy
Discarded in the quest for more

One day You promise to return
Oh God, how long before we learn
That love and faith cannot be kept to self in silence
Waiting for that day

Heart of conscience awaken 
Before the judgement day
So when asked, what did you do
I’ll know what I can say

“Think Occasionally of the Suffering of Which You Spare Yourself the Sight – Albert Schweitzer   Leave a comment

This Monday, October 13, at 9am I’ll be speaking at the Planetree Conference in support of animal rights — and the importance of our all taking a part as rescuers — The animal kingdom has even begun to speak to me in dreams. Last night I dreamed of a dolphin. It was so vivid, I woke up crying — Their crisis is inflicted by human hands and we can do something to help them — In so doing, we rescue ourselves …
