the joys of motherhood….or…at least the animals got it right….

Motherhood .. defined as the kinship relation between an offspring and the mother. 

It can mean many things depending on our own experience.  Here are some photos that will put a lump in your throat…

love and the aww moment…

Think of LOVE and then read below!

Agape Lovesacrificial commitment, dedicated to the well-being of another

Genuine Agape love doesn’t expect love in return.  It is everlasting, unconditional, sacrificial and immeasurable.

Our heavenly Father not only cares for us, but He also cares for His creation!  He blesses us with pets and all kinds of animals so that we may enjoy them and that they, in turn, may enjoy us!

People always ask, “Will my pet be in heaven?”  The Bible doesn’t give any specific reference to this question, however, Isaiah 65:25 says, “The wolf and the lamb will feed together, and the lion will eat straw like the ox, but dust will be the serpent’s food. They will neither harm nor destroy on all my holy mountain,” says the LORD. (NIV)

God’s love is perfect and is everything it can possibly be.  He loves you and He loves His creation.

“We know that in the Bible, ultimate redemption will extend to the whole of creation: i.e. Romans 8:21—‘that the creation itself will be liberated from its bondage to decay and brought into the glorious freedom of the children of God,’” said Dr. Dale Welden, senior pastor of St. Andrews Presbyterian Church. “I don’t know of a reason it would not extend to animals.” Another example is Luke 3:6, which says, “and all flesh shall see the salvation of God.” In the last book of the Bible, the Revelation, Christ says, “Behold, I am making all things new.” Randy Alcorn, author of Heaven, believes that this extends to animals. In the book, he writes, “Horses, cats, dogs, deer, dolphins, and squirrels—as well as the inanimate creation—will be beneficiaries of Christ’s death and resurrection.” It seems that God meant animals to be part of His world—now and in the age to come.  There are many different theories, however…

Jesus said, “All things are possible to him who believes!”  If you believe that, then get ready for the best animal reunion in Heaven!

Want to be a part of His Kingdom?  Pray along with me!

Father, forgive me for being a sinner. I ask you to cleanse me and I ask Jesus to come into my heart and make me a new creation. Thank you Father for hearing me and loving me. Thank you for your creation and help me to love others the way you love me.  Help me to always live for you, in Jesus’ Name I pray, amen.

I hope you enjoyed the pictures (via Pinterest) !

sweetie…you need a fresh perspective…

Ever had one of those days?

You know……you can’t quite put your finger on it?

Seems like everyone around you wants to just butt heads? 

Maybe you just need to take another look and get a fresh perspective on things….

Remember to try to do your best and show some kindness..

Sometimes looking at things from their perspective… is all you need. 

So, when life get’s you down……

Just remember to keep your head above water..

And you CAN get by with a little help from your friends!!

wild hugs…

I love hugs.  Who doesn’t?  These little cuties love hugs too….although, if their mommy or daddy tried to give a hug, there might be a different ending…it might then be called, ‘when hugs go bad’….

Check out these hugs…HERE!

a day at the zoo…

Today I thought it would be a good day to go to the zoo with two adorable girls…..they agreed.  We got in my car and zoomed away…

Why, yes!  It does seem as though SOME

ONE got into the magi markers and tattooed their legs…….and painted their big toe black……(sigh)

The FIRST matter of business is GET THE DOUBLE STROLLER with mega restraints.  Although those are Houdini girls so restraints mean nothing to them…..they are quite crafty….

We saw all kinds of animals, birds and even a peacock was strolling around our picnic table!!  I wish, wish, wish I could have been quicker on the draw when the duck waddled up to Sofia and snatched a cracker right out of her hand….WHERE WAS MY CAMERA?  She screamed bloody murder and so picnic time was SO over.

So let’s go to the petting zoo so we can pick up some nasty, goat disease….Paloma didn’t have the nerve to actually ‘touch’ one of the goats but she did a lot of waving.  And then there was SUCH LOUD LAUGHING…….I’m talking Belly laughter!!


It seemed that the goat pooped and Paloma decided it was the funniest thing she had ever seen…..and it probably was.  So she decided to point it out so I could laugh too.

After Sofia milked the fake cow we decided that it would be lovely to put on our bathing suits and play in the water.  Wait.  Let’s clarify…..only TWO of us put on bathing suits and pranced in the water……(I’m not one of them).

By now…Nani is getting reeeeeeally tired.  So before my skin started to feel/look like this…

we decided it would be a good idea to go on home.  It was a fun day and I’m glad that I was able to take them!  They are the little loves of my life and my heart gets bigger each time I am with them!!
