It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, pray, and think of others.
Today would you consider taking a pause for the wounded?
Many are wounded, people and animals alike. 100% why I have this blog going is mainly to bring awareness to the sad fact that there are so many “wounded” animals. Whether it is because of abuse, neglect, carelessness, or simply because people don’t see them as living, feeling beings.
Wounded obviously means more than just physical. We (& animals) are wounded inside too. Sometimes spirits are crushed, feelings are hurt, and sometimes its a mental health issue.
There is the current devastation of Hurricane Harvey. No doubt there is and will be many wounded from this, physically and emotionally. Please keep the people and animals affected by this in your prayers.
Then, there is me. (Read full post here.)
The Tale Of Henry The Cat &
The Woman Who Loved Him
I came across this post and was so moved by it, I had to share. Tiya Ivy wrote this post after the tragic death of her cat, Henry. She poured her heart out about the pain she was in over Henry’s death and how it happened.
Here is a paragraph from Tiya’s post:
“You see, Henry wasn’t just a run of the mill house cat. He wasn’t just a fixture in the background of our home that came in for feeding and kept to himself. He was an ever-present, loving and very involved member of our family. The night he died, his final act in this world before sneaking past my husband’s feet to get out far too late that evening, was to calm our 4-year-old daughter (who was having a meltdown because she was overtired and didn’t want to go to bed) by laying peacefully beside her until she finally drifted to sleep – as was his way. Every time I had a migraine, he never left my side until the storm had passed, even when I was puking my guts up and writhing in agony. When he came for a cuddle, he didn’t just lie next to you, he insisted on having his paw held. Despite the numerous times they certainly deserved it, he never once raised a claw to either of our girls. The amount of times he would make us laugh on a daily basis is innumerable. He was the physical embodiment of love and patience. He gave us everything he had to give and your actions robbed us of the chance to thank him for choosing to share his life with us before he left this world.”
I will provide a link to this post at the end. But first I wanted to discuss an important message that comes from this post.

It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, and notice what’s around you.
Before I begin this post, I just wanted to mention that each one of these pictures were taken by me over this past week (except for the very last image). Some of them were taken with my phone which takes really bad pictures. They would have just been bad quality pictures if I left them alone, so I had fun playing with them and making each one look different.
Just in this past week I have seen a lot of beauty around me. From the flowers above to the beauty in nature as seen in the photos below.

Happy Sunday! Enjoy the beauty around you.
