Animal Shelters

This is what happens at pounds behind the scenes. Please spay or neuter your pets.

All across the world today

in shelters every single day,

dogs and cats sit and wait

until they meet an awful fate.

Some are adopted, some are claimed.

Some are even given names.

But others sit and wait and mope

until it’s said there is no hope.

As critters come and cages fill,

most dogs and cats must be killed.

Some die by gas or given shots.

This happens every day a lot.

Care for your pet every day.

Have your pet neutered or spayed.



I see the full moon

outside my bedroom window.

It lights up the night.

The stars are twinkling,

like shimmering jewels on a

blanket of night sky.

A calm wind whispers,

rustling through the tall trees

and moving dark clouds.

I get into bed.

A deep yawn escapes my lips.

A deep sleep awaits…

Counting My Blessings

I count my blessings

for people I love, for a

body in good health.

But I give most thanks

for God’s biggest sacrifice;

sending Christ to Earth.

God sent his son to

live on earth in human form

to live as we live.

He was flogged harshly

and carried his cross to where

he’d be crucified.

Christ was crucified

like a common criminal

to pay for our sins.

I am truly blessed

to know that Christ died for me

and for all of us.
