I am undeniably a romanticist, a dreamer, an idealist, and I tell myself sometimes that I should stop. I am in love with love; a constant feeling in my heart. I've come to realize that in all honesty, I don't think I'll ever really stop loving--as Love is such a beautiful thing-[continued...]

PRAYER FOR ANIMALS
Hear our humble prayer, O God, for our friends the animals, especially for animals who are suffering; for animals that are overworked, underfed and cruelly treated; for all wistful creatures in captivity that beat their wings against bars; for any that are hunted or lost or deserted or frightened or hungry; for all that must be put to death.
We entreat for them all Thy mercy and pity, and for those who deal with them we ask a heart of compassion and gentle hands and kindly words.
Make us, ourselves, to be true friends to animals, and so to share the blessings of the merciful.

A Puddle of Mushiness about Matters of the Heart
Smile can be contagious...
TODAY is National Feral Cat Day. Tell the world you support cats...
Original source: Alley Cat Allies
How to help a feral/community cat:
Distractions are inevitable while attending church. While I was attending mass services back in Glendale, California, quite a few things are happening around that I and the other parishioners were subjected to.
I remember a young man who never seems to stop twitching his leg. -- A scantily clad girl who thinks she's at the beach. -- Folks who banter loudly as if watching a teleserye. -- A baby who cries at the top of his lungs and so on...
All of those have commonality. But what got my attention at last Sunday's mass service was on the animalistic side---literally and figuratively. As I raised my head after praying, I see a big dog staring right at me! Whoa! a dog attending mass service...that's a first!
Well, maybe it shouldn't have surprised me since we are in Vegas after all! A lot more are happening here on the wild side! ;O Hence the tag-line "What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas."

October already in just a few days...
Folks, It is that time of the year again--October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month--one that so closely strike a chord in my Skippyheart because my mother, by GOD's Grace is a breast cancer Survivor going for 9 years now, and I too am being checked every 6 months for being considered as high-risk for it.
Breast Cancer is very real and it is important to be aware that it could happen to you, or your loved ones. Please do not let the ads and campaigns you come across to especially this awareness month, fall into deaf ears--Please participate, support the cause and be informed-- Remember, as with any other health matters, early detection greatly increases the success of your treatment and survival should you be diagnosed with breast cancer. Whoever you are [Men too]...
Home is You...
I'm sitting in the railway station.
Got a ticket to my destination.
On a tour of one-night stands my suitcase and guitar in hand.
And every stop is neatly planned for a poet and a one-wo/man band.
I wish I was,
Home where my thought's escaping,
Home where my music's playing,
Home where my love lies waiting
Silently for me.
