Cuddles’ Courageous Journey into Granbee Land

Cuddles trotted and prodded down the slippery slope
Rain dropped in droves; her wiggly legs could hardly cope
She terribly missed her Mama and Papa so
Poor Cuddles muddled in the muddy yuck all alone

Cuddles needed critters to brighten her droopy mood
She shivered and quivered and needed some food
It wasn’t like her to constantly brood
but where was Mama and Papa, she crooned

They wouldn’t leave her by her lonesome
They’d make sure she’s protected and then some
Cuddles prayed, off and on, for friendly critters to come
Critter drifters to frolic with, so not to think of Pa and Mum

Cuddles thought of the One and how He guided her along
With the One silently beside her, though wobbly, she’d be strong
but, Cuddles had flutter butterflies in her tummy,
thinking things was wrong

‘cuz Mama and Papa was gone,
and suddenly, funny thing, she heard a song

“Hark, I hear jolly sounds,” Cuddles thought, “I hear happy hums!”
Cuddles stopped in her mucky tracks
and wondered where those hums came from

“Now they’re getting closer,” thought Cuddles, in her mind
“Oh, I do hope they’re just like my kind!”

Her paws didn’t budge, no, dare her not
Then just around the bend, a motion she done caught…

(Cuddles meets up with Granbee’s critters, http://granbee.wordpress.com,
and her journey surprises even herself,
as she continues her courageous search for Mama & Papa…
she may reunite with them again,
or she’ll mourn and grieve for some time,
then she’ll still believe in the One to take care of herself
with her new critter friends

Dear God…

I thank You for every day

Each day is a new breath taken

If, at times, my voice is not heard

Please don’t feel forsaken

 

You are not forgotten

You’re in my daily prayers

Moments I should lean on You

The One who resides upstairs

 

It’s effortless in this “busy-ness”

To become extremely diverted

To pointless things needing my focus

And leaving You deserted

 

Still, I thank You for guiding me,

Shining light on my journey’s way

And while I may question the path

From You I will never stray

Amen

Sharing a little Gratitude and Thanksgiving Wishes :)

I’m thankful for
my parents, who brought me
into this world
They had two lovely daughters
Then another little girl
They’ve lived into their nineties
Seen new changes along the way
Each day, I think of them
Each day, for them, I pray

I’m thankful for
my husband, I’m the lucky one
for all he does for me
for how he shares his heart
and gives of himself so lovingly

I’m thankful for
my children, my daughter and my son
for who they’ve grown to be
for their love and compassion
they give so generously

I’m thankful for
all those unmentioned, they know who they are
and for my loving dog who passed
She’ll be our forever star…

for sight, so I may see
all of God’s creation
for sound,  so I may hear “I Love You”
with tremendous elation

and last, but not forgettable
for all of you
my friends in the blogging world
May your Thanksgiving be
absolutely wonderful!

Hugs and Blessings
Lauren
