"The Spirit of the Sovereign LORD is on me, because the LORD has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners, to proclaim the year of the LORD's favor and the day of vengeance of our God, to comfort all who mourn, and provide for those who grieve in Zion — to bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair."~from ISAIAH 61 Bible verse for this Blog

APOLOGY to READERS who followed a SEARCH to HERE & didn't find it

On July 18, 2017, I drafted almost 3000 blog posts that I had published since 2008 when I began blogging, rather than edit each one. So if you clicked here from somewhere else and ended up with the post unavailable, I am sorry but this is why. It'd be too much work for me to go back and fix them. There's an explanation on 7/19/17 as I'm still learning.

RAINBOW BRIDGE

This is in memory of my 
FAITHFUL FRIEND
 BRAVO
(who died one week ago today)

The song in this video is "Perhaps Love" being sung by John Denver and Placido Domingo
(you can go HERE for the lyrics)

The original one I encountered was HERE
Movie by Terri Pike with music by Kerry Muzzey 

COMFORT FOR GRIEVING ANIMAL LOVERS

A Different Grief: Coping with Pet Loss 

... and I'd also like to dedicate this to
another blog friend
ozJane
and
her sweet friend
MOGGIE
"Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together. There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.
All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor. Those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by. The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent. His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.


You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.


Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together....

I love this quote that the video shared:


"Until one has loved an animal, a part of one's soul remains unawakened." ~ Anatole France

  3. I had to share the lyrics,
    even with the link.

    The song is sung by John Denver and Placido Domingo.

    It is "Perhaps Love".

    Here are the words that they are singing:

    Perhaps love is like a resting place
    A shelter from the storm
    It exists to give you comfort
    It is there to keep you warm
    And in those times of trouble
    When you are most alone
    The memory of love will bring you home
    (John Denver)
    Perhaps love is like a window
    Perhaps an open door
    It invites you to come closer
    It wants to show you more
    And even if you lose yourself
    And don't know what to do
    The memory of love will see you through
    (Placido Domingo)
    Oh, Love to some is like a cloud
    To some as strong as steel
    (John Denver)
    For some a way of living
    For some a way to feel
    (Placido Domingo)
    And some say love is holding on
    And some say letting go
    And some say love is everything
    And some say they don't know
    (John starts joined by Placido)
    Perhaps love is like the ocean
    Full of conflict, full of pain
    Like a fire when it's cold outside
    Thunder when it rains
    If I should live forever
    And all my dreams come true
    My memories of love will be of you
    (Placido Domingo)
    And some say love is holding on
    And some say letting go
    (John Denver)
    And some say love is everything
    Some say they don't know
    (John starts joined by Placido)
    Perhaps love is like the ocean
    Full of conflict, full of pain
    Like a fire when it's cold outside
    Or thunder when it rains
    If I should live forever
    And all my dreams come true
    My memories of love will be of you
