Why dogs live less than human

Why dogs live less than human Here’s the surprising answer of a 6 year old child. Being a veterinarian, I had been called to examine a ten-year-old Irish Wolfhound named Belker. The dog’s owners, Ron, his wife Lisa, and their little boy Shane, were all very attached to Belker, and they were hoping for a miracle. I examined Belker and found he was dying of cancer. I told the family we couldn’t do anything for Belker, and offered to perform the euthanasia procedure for the old dog in their home. As we made arrangements, Ron and Lisa told me they thought it would be good for six-year-old Shane to observe the procedure. They felt as though Shane might learn something from the experience. The next day, I felt the familiar catch in my throat as Belker‘s family surrounded him. Shane seemed so calm, petting the old dog for the last>>>

Sunday’s a comin’! Easter is the greatest celebration of the Christian faith. On Easter, we celebrate the event that sets Christianity apart from all other religions and cultural traditions of the world. It’s the day that our God rose from the dead. And He’s still alive today! This collection of poems, video quotes and verses speaks to the power and beauty of Jesus’ resurrection. Sunday’s a comin’! “6 For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”  ~ John 3:16 (NIV) I want to share a poem that paraphrases a sermon described by Tony Campolo in an Easter message.  It reflects the truth of the Easter message, that while there is deep sorrow reflecting the pain that Jesus Christ suffered on Good Friday, there is even a greater hope because we know that Easter Sunday is coming.

How to Free Yourself from Resentment and Forgive Others

How to Free Yourself from Resentment and Forgive Others Being betrayed, lied to, and cheated disturbs the peace of our mind and makes us question our own self-worth.
