In this day/ in this age/ most people suffer some sort of rage/
There’s a movement amongst us/ it’s called Peace of mind/
it’s a natural state that we can All find/
Have a little compassion for all life that you see/
every person/ every creature/every plant/every tree.
All of life is sacred/ nothing is exempt,
an open mind and open heart is where this Peace is kept/
Could you just imagine if everyone took part/
in living life vicariously from the love within their hearts!?/
For those of you who haven’t felt just what i’m talkin’ ‘bout/
it’s a state of mind we All can have that ya just can’t live without/
It’s why we’re here /each one of us/ the purpose of our soul,
to accept All life and know we’re One it’s the fastest way to grow/
We all come from the same place/ Soul connection/ human race/
we must Unite the time is near/ our highest calling/to lose all fear/
Love yourself and Accept you too/ our earthly mission Be true to You/
Such simple truth if you believe/ have some Faith and you’ll receive/
Love is all there really is/ yet fear takes over / we cease to Live
Trust your instinct or Higher Power/ you’ll find your Peace/ the earth will flower/
with seeds of Peace they’ll grow and spread/ you’ll lose the demons in your head/
That really Is possible/ it’s been IN us All/ all along.
Dig real deep/ you’ll see it’s there/ gotta get beyond that surface layer/
Peel through all the pain and hurt/ see the raw beauty of who you are/
Child of God through the human veil/ this body but a host to your eternal Being/
Lisa Jane Emery
The sands of time like deserts wide
keep holding on – no rewind.
Spread across eternity
the future holds uncertainty.
Embrace your “now”…that’s all there is
refuse it though and cease to live.
Stop holding back your destiny
grab hold this day and be set free.
Live with your heart – embrace your core
one small step then reach for more.
Our thoughts create our destiny
Trust and Believe – then you will see.
It takes some Faith and Patience too
but then rewards will come to you.
Faith is not something you see
Believe it First so it can be.
The eyes can see the shallow plains
but with the heart see what remains.
This life we know is just a blink
It’s not as serious as you may think.
Live each day like it’s your last
It’s what’s here now…don’t look back.

This is not my dog nor situation but with all the attention this article has gotten and the impression that this information is False because of Snopes.com and other Veterinarians is not entirely True either. What they claim False is this particular story and the fact ice water or an ice cube in moderation is not an issue or an issue on relaxed, cooled dogs. But they do go onto state that the amount of any kind of water can cause an issue or vigorous drinking.
I will put parts of the article in bold print to show that the dog wasn’t cooled down and before the ice in water was given, the dog had already drank the bucket of water and a bit later symptoms were noticed.
I will also add a link to how to treat a dog over heating. Within that part of the article.

As a child, writing short stories and plays were a coping mechanism to the madness around me. It was during the mid teens in which I dicovered poetry…or poetry discovered me…it’s a fine line. While living in a dorm at a Christian home for troubled young people is when it began. This is the very first poem I ever wrote and put to paper, at sixteen years of age.
Why am I so messed up inside
Holding feelings I don’t want to hide.
I’m trying so hard to deal with myself…
But my problems are left sitting up on the shelf.
I try to clear them to no avail..
Everything I do just seems to fail
Nothing I do seems to turn out right
But something inside me won’t stop the fight
I’m torn and tossed in this stormy sea
Trying to find who I’m meant to be
So many emotions all bottled inside
It can really mess up ones heart and mind
Things are confused…jumbled together,
Making my heart feel so under the weather.
I’m hurting and hurting, the pain is so deep,
I’m climbing the mountain but its still too steep.
I need someone to lean on, who’ll understand,
Someone who’ll lend me their helping hand.
Most people are users…they like to abuse…
So when I get hurt…it’s really nothing new.
They say they’re “playin” but it cuts like a knife,
They just itch to cause someone strife.
Now my emotions are scarred and abused,
Body and soul are battered and bruised.
So be ready to fight…take it in stride…
Cuz this is a game…most people call life.
Lisa J Emery ’85
We’re often our own worst enemy, second guessing ourselves and not listening to or avoiding that still small voice inside…or by not slowing down enough to hear it.
Sometimes it’s our fear of what others will think or how they’ll react that paralyzes us.
When we learn to Love and Accept ourselves the fear dissipates…as though the “shackles have been released” and you become free to Be your Authenic Self…not the one behind the mask.
It only matters that You give Yourself! Permission to Be! The Greatness You Are.

Mother nature sends her love ~ heart shaped leaf falls from above ~ look around and you will see ~ that love is everywhere…and free
As we move through this craziness called life we experience the push and pull of the cosmos. Life is a journey..a rollercoaster…and as such there will inevitably be ups and downs. This quote captures the beauty..and oxymoron of life. When we reach those lows..remember its a natural part of the cycle, and how we react to these situations determines how quickly the lows will pass.
Like the cha-cha its a dance of two steps forward, one step back.
#PeaceAndLove to all
