"MERRY CHRISTMAS!!"

"MERRY CHRISTMAS!!"
The Rockefeller Center with its giant Christmas Tree in New York City.
Merry Christmas to One and All, Dear Readers!!
This is an old photo with our little Christmas Tree, and Bridget, my rescued cat. Bridget was abandoned in a box -when she was still a little kitten with her siblings- in the Hospital backyard where my hubby worked as a Chief Physician Surgeon at The Emergency Room. I rescued and helped many homeless cats and kittens like her. I also rescued some puppies and dogs.
My hubby and I spent Christmas at home with our dear cats long ago...
I got Daisy, a Seal Point Siamese, in 1991, as a 12th birthday present for my little daughter.
In this photo, mom Daisy (1991-2001) is the one who is sleeping next to her three offsprings.
My dear cats' family has been Frank, Harvey, Blueberry, and their mom Daisy, plus many more rescued homeless cats. I gave them shelter, health care and love.
Frank was born in March of 1995. He is still a living legend.
Frank, my seal-point Siamese, is almost 18 years old at this point in time.
Unfortunately, he is experiencing some health issues (liver and gallbladder infection) right now. Frank is under strong medications. If he does not improve his health in the next two days, the Veterinarian will have to perform a surgery which will remove Frank's gallbladder. In other words, his precious life is at stake. You see I treat my dear cats as if they were my own children. I love them so much!! So, I am taking great special care of him. Frank is Daisy's last son alive. 
His other family members and furry buddies have already crossed the Rainbow Bridge.
His furry best friends, Sonya and Little Bear, my rescued cats, keep Frank warm.
They will be 11 years old in February of 2013. We only have 3 cats alive...
This is a photo of our small table in our apartment. You are invited for supper.
Would you come in and join us? I wonder...
MY PHOTO POEM.

This is a photo of my beautiful garden terrace on top of our Apartment Building
where I read My Bible on daily basis.
This is a picture of My Good News Bible.
Jesus is at the door of your heart. Will you let Him in?...
Do you know what is Christmas all about?...
Do you know the meaning of Christmas?...
Christmas day is a day to remember and celebrate a Holly birth, the birth of Jesus.
Jesus was born, our dear Lord and Savior.
Let's remember and share a sweet Christmas Poem that I wrote long ago...
Struggling on the battlefield of life,
I pray for God's grace and mercy.
He is the mirror of my soul.
Jesus, come and sit a while with me.
I am not dwelling or weeping
On the valley of the glowing sun.
Oh, Lord! Help us with Your healing love!
I pray at Your Holly feet, and try to understand...
I hear the whistling wind in Christmas time,
It carries soft voices on the bay...
Let Jesus show you the way!
Let our dear Lord grants His mercy!
Follow God's plan for your unique play.
Thank Him for blessings and for this new day!
Still bringing the teaching message,
The choir of little Angels arose the crowd.
Listen to the shuffle of their little wings,
Open your eyes, smile and erase your frown.
Jesus, the baby in the manger,
How easy is to love
The Master, our Lord and Savior.
At birth, His morning star was high up above.
Mary and Joseph held Him in their arms,
And they were so happy to have.
Oh, how easy is -our Lord- to love!
Jesus, the baby in the manger was born.
How easy is to praise Him,
To elevate prayers in Hymns and in every form.
An Angel of God appeared in Joseph's dreams.
In the town of Bethlehem, the Holy Spirit announced Mary
That she would bear Christ, the King,
Who would save His people from their sins,
Promise an everlasting life in Heaven upon high,
And a peaceful resting in paradise.
Celebrate Christ's birth on Earth!
The Messiah, the baby in the manger,
The messenger of peace,
Our Lord was born.
It is Christmas Time. Rejoice!
Praise Him and pray in all forms.
Baby Jesus, the Nazarene,
I would hold You in my arms.
I shall live for You forever
And stay away from harm.
At Christmas, may you pause to feel the love
Of Heaven deep within your heart.
Praise and glory to God in the Highest!
Fill all your life with the Lord's Art.
Peace on Earth, and good will in mind to mankind,
So serenity in your lifetime, you will certainly find.

Dear Readers,
This little note goes out for all my friends. I glance at the world today, and this is exactly what has been on my heart for the last few days.
The Holidays are upon us, and it can be a very joyful time of year. Some of us, however, may have issues during the holidays. Sometimes, we are overwhelmed with great sadness when we remember our beloved ones who are not with us any longer.
One of the worse things that could happen to a mother, to a parent is to lose her/his child. Some mothers in the United States at this time will spend Christmas without their beloved children, for they are little Angels in Heaven with the Lord. The story tells that an evil doer took their little precious hearts for no reason, while they were in classrooms at a School in Newtown, Connecticut. This unfold news touched a nerve across the whole world, and the U.S. President and other world leaders expressed a deep grief behind their tears. People across the world are sharing their concern and sadness over this tragedy in Newtown, Connecticut.
Many people have no one to spend this Christmas time with, and they are besieged by loneliness. We all need caring thoughts and loving prayers right now. We should say a prayer, give a moment of support to all those who have family problems, health struggles, job issues, worries of any kind, and just need to know that someone cares. We all need moral support, a helping hand, and the power of friendship love. Peace be with you all!
It is about time that we should allow ourselves to change for the better, for better days ahead of us. Would you like to change the world for a better world?...
You see, no matter what we do, we can't change the number of hours that are gone in the day. We are unable to stop the time from going. Yet, you have a great impact and power over what goes into those hours, and what comes out from them. So, fill the hours with positive purposes, and the passing of time will work in your favor. Fill your day with meaning, spiritual food for your soul, with creativity, with goodness, joy and love; and each day will leave behind lasting values for your own world. Align your efforts more closely with your true purpose, and you'll find that those efforts quickly become much more effective.
Choose to put more meaning in each moment in your life, and you'll find a sense of fulfillment in your heart. Begin to fill the world with your own unique beauty and goodness, store your awards and go beyond the limits of time. Therefore, your own world will be filled with meaningful and positive actions.
Moreover, when conditions change for the worse, there is no need to despair or give up, for you have the ability to find a new starting point, a new beginning, from which you can raise yourself to higher levels of achievement. There is always a way to get where you have chosen to go. Each challenge gives you new ways to add stronger values to your dreams.
Let us become an example of life for others to follow in the same path of a righteous life!
MERRY CHRISTMAS, and A HAPPY NEW YEAR, DEAR READERS!!
Thank you for visiting my sites and lingering with me for a while!

Hi Eva,
Thank you for visiting my sites and offering your lovely comments, my dear friend!
You are a super friend.
I highly appreciate sincere friendship. I am glad you like my poems. I try to share as much as I can. However, my poetic well has run dry lately...
You see, I am taking a long writing break due to health issues and other things going on in my family over here where I am at.
I realize that I have never had a big audience, or many comments, or much success in my general blogs.
Thank you again, for taking your precious time to visit me and write to me, my friend!
I feel so lonely and sad when no one shows up to write to me. I feel ignored. I know I write nice poems, yet it leaves a sense of frustration that folks do not appreciate my writing time online and my poetic talents.
I guess I had better go elsewhere where other people may appreciate my writing and artistic skills.
Merry Christmas & Happy New Year, sweet Eva, with your dear family and beloved ones!
All the Best,
Poet Starry Dawn.

Hi Sandie, dear friend,
Oh! Thank you, darling!...
You have surprised me with your lovely and kind visit. I have missed you, Sandie sweetheart, especially when I do not see you visiting me as often as you used to. Anyway, I am highly appreciative and greatful when folks do feed back with me, and treat me with the respect I truly deserve. I am busy at this point, because my dear cat Frank, who is almost 18 years old, caught a liver and gallbladder infection. He is being treated with strong medications. However, the Veterinarian still thinks that he might need a surgery to remove his gallbladder in the near future. Poor Frank! He is depressed, and he can hardly move around. I feed him, give me water, and his pills. Doctor Paul has learned how to do help animals in emergency situations, so he gives him the prescribed antibiotics with injections twice a day. Paul will take his vacation break next week, so he will be home taking care of Frank with me. Then, I'll spend more time with them too...
My hubby, Doctor Paul, is a Chief Physician Surgeon at a Public Hospital Emergency Room Overseas, so he has got experience with human beings for over 45 years of his lifetime. He will soon RETIRE. Then, we'll be ready to buy a little home in a lovely Southern State where we can retire together and live in peace among mother nature, animals, and my dear family. I make plans to go to New York by the Spring of 2013 for my family gathering reunion. I think, my daughter is buying a new bigger house for her 3 children. So, I am taking a long writing break to fix myself for my big venture back home. I ought to say bye for a while, dear Online friends.
It has been a real pleasure meeting all of you, great folks!
Sandie, you have been a super friend all this time since you joined my sites. I would love to wish you Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year with your dear family and beloved ones!
God may always touch your lives with many blessings, my friends!
All the Best.
Until we write again.
