Happy Cows, Happy Sheep and Making a Difference


 This morning I awoke to this  wonderful video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kUZ1YLhIAg8
 of cows jumping for joy after being saved from slaughter. 

It made me feel so good to see the joy not only from the animals but from the joy of the wonderful people of Bergische Land (near Cologne Germany) who saved them. Here is the link about their organization http://www.kuhrettung.de click the flag on the upper right corner to translate.

Although she is not part of this group, this is what my dear friend Dori Stuffer does with her small flock of sheep. The unwanted sheep are looked after each day by the shepherdess herself and receive the best care to ensure happy and healthy long lives.  


When you meet people who set their own desires aside to care for the needs of another, you have truly
met the best of what life has to offer.

    1. You are completely right Dori, So many wonderful people are remembered for their compassion in this united effort to care for the innocent. Thank you for the names of the angels.

    2. You are welcome, angle!

      Today I read in one of my book-friends (Thomas von Kempen, "Following Christ", 16th century), that it is such a wonderful way to find the Lover, when you can set yourself at the later position, so the Lover can take the first position and fill your heart with peace and light.

      So we can say tank you to the animals who give us the chance to forget our small Ego and open our soul for real life.

    3. Our creator gives us so many hidden opportunities, we must only open our eyes and hearts. I also love Thomas Kempis, beloved by many.

  4. Welch eine froh-ansteckende Botschaft am Morgen! Da müssen uns erst Tiere zeigen, wie sich die Kreatur freuen kann, ganz Schlimmem entronnen zu sein! Herzerquickend anzuschauen! Und: warum nicht nachahmen, das Vor-Freude-über-sein-Leben-Springen?!

    1. English translation, What a happy-contagious embassy in the morning! Since we need only show animals, like the creature can look forward to be quite escaped Schlimmem! Herzerquickend to look at! And why not imitate the pre-joy-on-his-life-jumping?

      Thank you Carola you bring up a most obvious conclusion. Good to see you here!!
