"Journeys of a Lifetime & Other Blogs."

"Journeys of a Lifetime & Other Blogs."

I dislike rainy days, for they bring back my deepest blues. Trying to while away the time, I can hear -from up our tower penthouse apartment- the whimper of two dogs which were left alone by their owner on a wet terrace downstairs. They shiver in the cold rain. The furry black sheep dog was talking to his friend, the old bald golden dog, but he would not move.
He might have died. And I hope not...
I just can't tolerate abandonment of the helpless, cruel abuses and harsh violence in any form. I have once felt hungry, freezing cold, homeless, forsaken. It's certainly a dreadful feeling!! Now, I am able to say that Jesus has rescued me at all times. Praise the Lord for His mercy on us!!
It's still raining hard in my corner of the world. My mind is slowly moving towards a soothing positive thought. Then, I hear a lovely tune playing on my mind...
Would you read my poems??...
Would you read my stories and random thoughts??
I wonder...

Children's Song.

I'm a sweet mom whale
Singing in the rain!!
I sail to places in the sun,
To the rainbow too.
I don't sing my blues,
I just sing for you.
I'm a sweet mom whale.
I've got many children.
They are my super cats.
I love them so much!!
You've got to feel
Their loving touch.
Oh, yes!! This love is for real!!
My super cats got healing powers.
It's their healing love
Embracing you with blessing showers.
I can't live without their love!!
I can't live without their love!!

If you are a new follower, I tell you something about myself, if you care to read...
I am a stay-at home disabled Christian grandmother without a paying job. My hubby, who is an almost retired Physician and E.R. Chief Surgeon at a Public Hospital Overseas, has been taking care of me, and my health issues for a long time. He is a war baby, for he was born during the Second World War. He likes to study issues about Wars Worldwide. I love him to death!! I am a baby boomer. I was born much after the II World War, but actually within the first decade afterwards.
I hardly go outside, for it's just too dangerous for Americans to go round alone in wild corners overseas. It's my own choice, because the door is wide open, yet I don't dare to trespass. 
I've got troubles with walking anyway, and I am scared.
So, hubby neither allows me to travel by myself nor live alone without proper home care.
I guess he cares for my well-being and worries too much for me...
Due to my chronic illness, which I have already mentioned in my older posts, I should take medications and get health supervisions for a lifetime.
My daughter did not call me on Mother's Day. I guess she is too busy with her own life in New York.
As you may realize, in other words, it seems as if the day won't end, and there are endless hours to fill up the day. We should choose what to do to fill up these empty hours with positive inputs and good deeds no matter where you are. There is always hope after the rain, for the rain won't last forever...
I have chosen WRITING, and REACHING OUT TO HELP THE ONES IN NEED, whether they would be humans or animals at stake. I believe that is my wondrous call from God, the master plan He has set for my life, and no matter where I go, I shall always carry that sort of mission worldwide.

I recall loving memories from my childhood...
My dear daddy used to take me to the Zoo at least once a month on Sunday. My dad and mom also brought me to Circus in our local areas where animals were displayed for the enjoyment of the public. Many children were there smiling and having a good time. I admit that seeing lovely animals were one of my favourite places to go to. I also loved to watch films involving animals of the world, and listen to my mom sweet bedtime stories...
Needless to say, I began to feel so sorry for helpless animals at the Zoo or Circus who were in poor conditions, confined in cages or small places and badly abused. Back then as a child, I heard their sad outcry for help, and I felt so sorry... As you can imagine, I broke down inside and cried aloud...
Back then as a child, I began to develop my true feeling to become a rescuer as an adult for the ones in need of help, humans and animals as well.
I do not see anything wrong for doing these sort of good deeds.
What do you think as a reader?? Is it worthwhile??...

I only write from time to time, or when I've got something meaningful to say.
My Blogs are separated according to their subject matters. They are different from one another. So, I had better place them in their own special space online.
If you wish to view my older posts, please sit back, relax, have a cup of coffee or tea with a sweet treat, and enjoy reading my inspirational writings. The Links are:

Great post, Starry.. I was interested in reading your story. I didn't know about your chronic illness. I didn't know that you lived in a 3rd world country. Will you move when your hubby retires?

Love the Children's Song you wrote. You have so much talent. Glad you can share so much through your poetry.

I'm one who loves rain and rainy days. I know how much my garden needs that water in order to grow. George and I love to hike in the rain!!!!! Guess that is the children in us! ha

You asked why I was not 'following' you.. WELL--I thought I was... Sorry.. I am now.

Starry I think your blog is worth something even if no one comments. I wrote my blog for 3 to 4 years with no followers - I didn't even know there were followers - duh. I was writing for me and my grandson when he grew up.

So I enjoy your blogs. I know you are in pain and you suffer. I am not sure I know why. But I care.

Your poem was lovely and I love your pictures that you use. Very nice.

And your husband is taking very good care of you and protects you there.

I can't stand violence to animals or to people.

I love the rain - to me it is refreshing.

I hope you have a good day.

Love, sandie

Hi Starry,
Sorry if I am a bit late reading this, finally sat down by the computer this evening after coming home from work. Feeling a little tired, but your blogs are always so inspiring. I wish I could write as you do, I always keeps my things short :) I suppose I am better in expressing myself through my art [I think]. Think we celebrate Mother's day this coming Sunday in Sweden. Will see if my children remembers...sometimes they do and sometimes not.
Have a lovely day my friend and keep up the writing.
Big hugs

Hello dear Starry, I love the rain and I was horrified to read how people leave their pets out in the rain, how cruel and thoughtless, there are many of these kinds of people. I am afraid I speak out and tell them how bad it is.
I once visited a patient in Tennessee. There was a horse in the paddock next door to her. It was raining and the whole place was a muddy mess, no grass at all. The poor horse stood with its head down...hopeless. I had my say about it. Next time I visited the horse was gone? Thinking and writing on this now, I wonder where??
My own three little ones (dogs) are well loved and cared for. I can't understand anyone doing less?
Much love to you today. xx

Hi Betsy sweetheart,
Thank you for reading my posts, offering your wise comments and following my blog!!
It is a real honour to have you aboard. I really love to have good folks reading and writing their comments. Otherwise, I might feel frustated that nobody really cares for my poetry, stories, thoughts and general topics of interest.
I am a very sensitive lady. I let you know that I am a U.S. Citizen, and American from New York City, a city lady, in other words.
I met my hubby overseas. He is a Physician Surgeon about to RETIRE. Yes, of course!! When he retires, we make plans to relocate back home to the States, in order to be closer to my family, my dear daughter and 3 grandchildren. They are all New Yorkers, born and raised there. They are city folks too. I love Rural Areas, but hubby is not too crazy about living in places like that. He is a City person, and he wants to live in the City. Then, it'll be a huge debate where to live or where to buy our final home... My daughter wants us to live in New York. Hubby prefers Florida. And I prefer the Blue Ridge Mountains and Lakes in TN or NC. Let's see who wins these things!!...
In order for me to get poetical inspirations, I must live in a lovely natural setting with gorgeous nature scenery. It could be a beach setting as well, for I love the sea too...
Betsy, I just love the gorgeous pictures that you take with your husband, George. He is almost a professional photographer, who takes awesome pictures. Hubby also loves nature and good photography.
One day, we may take up courses in photography as well, once we settle down back home. I write general songs and Christian songs too, so I make plans to sing in a Church Choir and in related places.
I've got many American friends who are doing the same things that I do. So, we may get together one day, and form a musical band. That is my big dream from my heart of hearts.
Thank you, Besty for sharing this comment with me, darling!!
Warm Hugs and Blessings,

Hi lovely lady Sandie,
Thank you so much for your encouraging words! Please, read...
I love to hear from you, Sandie.
You always go cheerfully to the point, and you make your writings worthwhile. I know there are many folks worldwide who read your posts and my posts too. However, they do not always post comments.
I remember now, long ago, there was a farmer, our follower blogger from your neighbor country, a powerful country as well, who loved my poetry and stories. This farmer wrote once a comment to me, and ask me if everything was OK, due to the fact that I had not been posting much at that time... I was astonished to find out that somebody in the world really cared for my poetry and writings. Actually, this blogger farmer was the one who inspired me to keep on going. So, I created this Journals Blog for him at first, and for people like him, who could be interested in my poetry, stories, inspirational thoughts and other writings. I really loved his wonderful blog with a farm setting, lovely horses and dogs.
I also hope that those shared pictures were NOT photo shops...
I just fell in love with his animals, and I do pray that they all still alive and doing well. Sandie, this is the true story why I began to write My Journals Blog. At first, I only had My Poetry Blog, and My Inspirational Site with Bible Readings and Devotionals. So, I decided to write something else about my personal life, or general topics, share pictures, or random thoughs, or whatever may cross my mind on separate posts.
This is a true story...
I do not really write this blog for me, I write it for all of you who follow me. If readers are not interested, I won't bother myself in posting anything in here. I've got MY OTHER BLOGS who are more important to me, like My Poetry, Inspirational Site and Nature Blog. Actually, this one comes last in importance, because it is more personal with chit chat and things like that. I am thinking in changing the whole thing around, and setting my posts to creative writing tips from my teacher's notebook, so that somebody could beneficiate from these writing topics. I am a very shy lady, you know, and I do not like to talk about myself or my personal life too much, only from time to time...
Sandie, I love your wonderful blog which I follow with joy.
I am still praying for your dear husband, for his complete healings and prompt recovery.
Warm Hugs and All the best,

Starry Dawn said...

Hi Eva dearest,
Thank you for visiting my sites!!
Well, Happy Mother's Day, Eva!!
You mentioned that it is mom's day in Sweden. You also hope your children will remember and call you. I hope they do...
My daughter did not call me on Mother's Day. She never call me, perhaps, on my birthday she does...
I hope she does...
I know how it feel to have our dear children living away from us. It could break our hearts, but their hearts might be broken as well to have been separated from their mothers. I guess, they all carry an inside wound that would never heal, to grow older without mom. I do experiment this sort of feelings due to the fact that I lost my dear mom long ago. My spiritual wound won't ever heal.
I admit that I always try to find something in order to soothe my inner self to achieve spiritual healings, although I do not find it an easy task...
Well, I send all my loving on your way, Eva sweetheart.
I love your wondrous art work!!
Keep up the good job, darling!!
All the best,

Starry Dawn said...

Hi precious lady Crystal Mary,
I am so happy to have you aboard!!
I wrote a couple of long comments in your wonderful blog.
I hope you go there and read my posts. I am sorry to hear that you have seen cruelty performed to animals in the States. I guess it is a bad issue worldwide.
I am glad to know that you take good care of your 3 dogs.
I also hope that you and your husband, Ray will begin to travel worldwide. I am sure it will be a great experience for both of you.
God bless you, Crystal, and those beloved ones!!
Warm Hugs and All the best,
