The Raging Storm - An Exercise In Creative Writing

Posted 03-07-2013 at 11:50 AM by caninemom3

Taking a beginning writing class may sound like a piece of cake, however, I have learned it is not. I have now completed lesson 5 of 12 for my class and the assignment was to practice what we have learned so far about writing a creative story. Though this story is quite weak, I wanted to post it here for my Christmas family to read. I hope it will give some measure of entertainment to your day. As always, all comments are welcome !! xo

[B][I]The Raging Storm [/I][/B]

[FONT=Calibri][SIZE=3]She was just a young 17-year-old girl sitting quietly in her parents’ living room. As she sat she was chilly and moved closer to the warm and cozy fire she had built. It was the season of spring but it was still winter in her soul. She had been feeling so sad and gloomy for the past few days and each hour seemed to magnify her already dour mood. Outside and in her soul a thunderstorm was brewing. The only difference was the storm in her soul was an emotional one. It was so...

Holding On To My Baby

Posted 03-02-2013 at 10:18 AM by caninemom3
Updated 03-02-2013 at 07:27 PM by caninemom3

A lot of people know that I love animals. I have three canines and three felines who are the loves of my life. There is nothing to me like the love of my furchildren. They are always loving unconditionally and expect nothing in return other than the basics of food and some measure of love back, which is much different than most humans I have encountered.

One of my canines is named Wishbone. He is just a little guy, I call him my "little man." Wishbone is a mix of Miniature Pinscher and Dachshund. He has a little stump for a tail and he is black, or he was until he started getting old. His once shiny coat is now salt and pepper gray and his once all black face is now mostly white. He is 16-1/2 years old and has some health concerns. Wish has been at my side through the very worst of times and the very best. He has seen many other furchildren become ill and taken away never to return. He knows when I am sad, he knows when I need love, his gentle soul knows when I...

My Magical Book

Posted 03-01-2013 at 07:33 PM by caninemom3
Updated 03-13-2013 at 08:16 PM by caninemom3

Books are always magical to me. Through books I have been to many places and experienced many things that I otherwise would never have had the chance to. I have been to Tudor England in the court of Henry VIII as he ruled with all the earmarks of the true tyrant he was and who fell in "love" quicker than the weather changes. I have been to the Holy Land and witnessed the Savior's birth. I have journeyed far to Hogwarts School and watched a forlorn and rejected boy become a confident and strong young man battle the ultimate evil for what is right and good. I, myself have read over and over again the story of Ebeneezer Scrooge, a man so mean and miserly that even a blind man's dog ran from him. To my pleasant surprise through much persistence of others he finally achieved his reclamation to the nice person he had very well hidden deep inside.

Books mean so much to me words cannot describe. They have been my companions when I had none; they have been my friend when...

Put Up Your Dukes, Post-Christmas Blues.

Posted 12-28-2012 at 03:27 PM by xmas365 (Christmas, Life, and Family)

Here I sit just before 5pm on December 28, I just flicked on my outdoor display and the rest of the indoor Christmas lights. I go through this every year a few days after Christmas, the feeling of emptiness like the way it feels when a beloved family member leaves to back home after a visit. I am a full blown Christmas enthusiast and these are the dark days after a full year of anticipation, seeing people take down their Christmas lights while your driving around just feels like a punch to the gut. I love seeing the decorations but before we know it they will be downstairs under the stairs like Frosty from Christmas With the Kranks. My outdoor lights stay on until January 8, I try to keep them on until after my birthday which is January 7. My indoor lights and decor usually stays up until the first weekend after my birthday. As I have said before everything stays up that long because of my love of Christmas that goes back to my childhood and pleading with my parents to keep the tree and...

A Message From Max

Posted 12-21-2012 at 05:46 AM by caninemom3

[B][I]This is a message from Rev. Max Lucado, a man I very much respect and find inspiration from. I thought it was important to share his thoughts as we approach Christmas this year and include this as part of my blog xo[/I][/B]

Some of the saddest words on earth are: “We don’t have room for you.”
Jesus knew the sound of those words. He was still in Mary’s womb when the innkeeper said, “We don’t have room for you.” (Luke 2:7)
And when he was hung on the cross, wasn’t the message one of utter rejection? “We don’t have room for you in our world.”
Even today Jesus is given the same treatment. He goes from heart to heart, asking if he might enter. Every so often, he’s welcomed. Someone throws open the door of his or her heart and invites him to stay. And to that person Jesus gives this great promise: [I]“In my Father’s house are many rooms.” (John 14:2)[/I]
What a delightful promise he makes us! We make room for him in our hearts….And he makes room for...
