The resurrection gives my life meaning and direction and the opportunity to start over no matter what my circumstances.  ~Robert Flat

Resurrection means rising from the dead or the revival of something old or unused. It can also mean recovery.

We are taught Christ died to save us from our sins. I am thankful for this sacrifice but there is more to it than that. His death and rising teaches that when you touch the bottom of life you can push-off and reach the surface again.  In the midst of such horror and despair there is positivity.

The little Chinese Water Dragon had its own resurrection this week so I think it appropriate to talk about it on today of all days. I don’t think God will mind.

When Tracey asked me if we could take the little dragon the key phrase she used was “Jane doesn’t have the money to feed her anymore.” Jane is not her real name but it’ll do. I knew there might be problems but I was totally unprepared for what came through my front door.


A Bit of An Emergency

For Writers on Wednesdays is postponed due to an animal emergency. Tracey brought home an extremely ill Chinese Water Dragon. We are working on him or her. I can’t say the sex because there’s no way to tell. It’s so malnourished and dehydrated.

Poor thing. I can’t even describe its condition and the conditions it was living in.

I’m mad though. No living being should be treated this way. It’s animal cruelty plain and simple. The woman who had it did the first right thing for this poor creature by giving it up.

I don’t know if it will live or die but we will do our best for it.

Pray for it, please or send whatever blessings you will.


Curio’s Past, Shhh.
