We lost Monika today. What an emptiness. The felines may be happy, but I'm very sad. No more chirping at birds or when someone sneezes. . . no more asking for cheese . . . no more frenzy-ing at the food bowl . . . She was so filled with personality.
"Jesus said unto her, 'I am the resurrection and the life; he that believeth in Me, though he were dead, yet shall he live; and whosoever liveth and believeth in Me shall never die."
Oh, tarry and be strong; Tell God in prayer What is thy hidden grief; Thy secret care. Yet, if no answer come; Pray on and wait: God's time is always best; Never too late. - Mrs. O.F. Walton (The Lost Clue, 1910)
There are two kinds of people - those who don't do what they want to do, so they write down in a diary about what they haven't done, and those who are too busy to write about it because they're out doing it! - The More the Merrier (1943)
'Do you give the horse his might? Do you clothe his neck with a mane? Do you make him leap like the locust? His majestic snorting is terrible. He paws in the valley , and rejoices in his strength; he laughs at fear, and is not dismayed. With shaking and rage he races over the ground.' - Job 39
"I learned something when I went back to Helstone, expecting it to be the paradise I knew as a child. Try as we might - happy as we were - we can't go back." - North and South
"I amar prestar aen. Han mathon ne nen. Han mathon ne chae A han noston ned 'wilith." - The Fellowship of the Ring
