Kitty Rescue

My Kitty got out one frigid day
Six months old she ran away

She was gone so worried was I
Calling her and looking low and high

Then one night I heard a sorrowful cry
There she was in a tree sixty feet high

The temperature was low I think twenty four
I was scared this Kitten would fall to the floor

Panic set in, what was I to do, I didn’t know
I couldn’t climb that tree, being old and so -

I called the Fire Department of our local town
Fifteen young men came to help my Kitty down

Quickly up the tree the young man went
Talking to her quietly she looked at him content

He grabbed her tucking her close to his chest
Bringing her down safely, knowing she was a mess

The first Kitty rescued by our town’s Firemen
Lucky Kitty a feline who committed this sin

She looked at her Hero and gave a purring song
As if to say, I was scared…so what took you so long?

Mai Ling was rescued by the North Patchogue Fire Department in 2007.
Being this was their first 'Kitty' rescue - the young fireman smiled!!!

A Braveheart Saves...

Our Firemen not only save us, they save the little creatures also.
God Bless Our Fireman!

The Farmer's Almanac is predicting a very cold winter.
It must be true because the squirrels are gathering 'NUTS.'
Three of my friends have already disappeared!

Hidden Mysteries

Arms that touch my soul
bringing life with a certain goal
that was hidden from the world
brings blushes to this little girl

A rose touches her cheeks
bring joy to days of bleak
as the lilies come to full bloom
bringing fragrance to her stale room

God’s eyes bring daydreams to thee
growing in beauty her eyes do see
she feels a kiss upon her young brow
feelings of not knowing why or how

White beauty she has become
for hours she has become one
the flame deep inside her frame
shall burn, but no scars shall remain –

as she regains her simple sanity now
from hidden mysteries upon her brow

Lonely Heart

Diamonds created from an uncut stone
buried within the earth’s surface,
once found they are cut and shaped
with facets of purity

Rare is the Diamond that sparkles
with a magnitude of brilliance,
catches a sad eye for clarity
with hues that glow - blinding

Diamonds fill the heart - the purest
of love is given as the soul surrounds
its glowing depth, bringing a moment
of silence to the heart that feels

Rare is the substance that one takes
for granted, purity and love may be
shared as the Diamond opens the heart
to the facets of life as gifts of love -

surrounds the lonely heart

If I Didn't Have Kitties...

I could sit on the
couch and my bed
the way I wanted,
without taking into
consideration how
much space several
fur bodies would need
...to get comfortable!

My Sister Cheri...

Please pray for my Sister Cheri
She has several health issues and was taken to the hospital
last night because of severe breathing problems...rg

NOTE: 10-15-11 I got a call here in NY at 5:00 am eastern time. I was soooo asleep, I thought it was my brother-in-law Bob calling about Cheri from Reno, NV. I was so scared because he wasn't talking. Then I realized it was my little sister Cheri. Her voice was raspy, but she was talking. She sounded good, but weak and told me she will be going to rehab in about 3 days. She is on dialysis for about 3 hours also daily. All in all she is improving and she said that the two attendants in the ambulance saved her life. I told her how so many people were praying for her and she said, 'I knew you would do that for me, Rhoda'. God is good and so are all of you for praying for my sister Cheri. Thank you all...rg

NOTE: 10-14-11 Cheri is now improving and is off the respirator. She has been taken to a regular room and will go to rehab in about three days. Her throat is very sore and she is having dialysis three times a day which is elimating the fluid within her body. Thank you for all the prayers my prayer warriors and thank you Alliance for caring...rg

NOTE: 10-10-11 Cheri has improved somewhat, but still on respirator. She also has been put on dialysis as her kidneys are failing. Her vitals have improved, 
but she still is a very sick girl...rg

My Parking Angel ~ Matthew

I read one day on a poetry
site that I frequent regularly
that if one prays for three days
they will be revealed their
guardian angel. I prayed for three
days and asked my angel to
reveal their self to me

The third day nothing happened -
so I went about my business, but
still thought about my angel
You see, I have a parking angel
who has been with me for about
four years and wherever I go my
parking angel finds me a parking
space right up close to the stores
entrance - Oh, somedays the parking
lots are very busy, but I know in a
short time my parking space will open up

On the fourth day I pulled into a
parking space, again up close to
the main doors of my favorite
grocery store and as I turned off
my car I heard in my mind the
softly spoken name...Matthew

I heard nothing else -
I said out loud,
'I can't believe it, I thought my
parking angel was a girl' - and
all this time you are a boy!' I am
now on a first name basis with my
angel who revealed himself to me,
my Matthew and he is so generous
when he gives me my parking space
He is with me always, right along with my
Father and when I am done shopping we all
ride back home again together
safe, sound and happy

Thank you Matthew for taking care of me
I love you - rg

I'se Watch'in You'se, Puppy!

In an unusual role reversal, a fox was spotted trailing a beagle in a forest near Montreal, Canada. The odd fox behavior was an effort to protect four newborn fox cubs nearby. The photographer noted that the fox outwitted the dog and saved the family. “It was the first time in my life when I saw foxes so brave, who managed to fight back in front of a hunting dog.”
