Koa, a 6-year-old Lab, was chasing lizards in the backyard of her San Francisco home when she discovered three orphaned baby rabbits in a nest in the dirt. Ever since, owner Tina Case says, Koa has taken on the role of mom to the two survivors. “They hop all over her and always find their way to the crook of her legs, where it is warm and sheltered. Koa has never been a mother, and these are like her puppies.” As soon as they’re big enough, Tina

St Nectan’s Kieve, Cornwall, England The waterfall in St. Nectan’s Glen has been described as one of the ten most spiritual sites in the country. It falls first into a kieve, orbasin (the Kieve is a potent symbol of Mother Earth and has long been a place of worship, reverence and healing since Celtic times). After the water leaps over a rock and into the kieve, it overflows and another waterfall carries the water to the lower level of the
What has always been interesting for me regarding the walls that I build is are they keeping me in or are they keeping me out. Walls protect against vulnerability. Vulnerability protects against the need for building walls. Sometimes I am so busy breaking down walls that I don't see there is a door right around the corner.

Words of wisdom, I wish they were mine! "Some of my best trout fishing has been done sitting down. That’s mostly because I try to watch a piece of water for a while before actually starting to fish. Its a kind of a zen thing and really does connect me to my surroundings."
Traditional St. Joseph's Ricotta Cream Puffs Recipe In its current version, the donut as sweet convent of St. Joseph was born, according to some in the convent of San Gregorio Armeno, according to others in that of St. Patrick. But there is also those who attribute the "invention" to the nuns of the Cross of Lucca, or those of Splendor. The first zeppole di San Giuseppe, who has been put on paper, however, dates back to 1837, by the famous gastronome Neapolitan Ippolito Cavalcanti.
Shafer's Schoolhouse Usually referred to as *Shafer's Schoolhouse*, this structure is reported to have been built during the 1820s and has also been the site of religious assemblies. Next to it is a small, almost-as-old cemetery. The building was originally located very close to the intersection of two roads and it was moved elsewhere on the corner lot during 1986 so that travelers could see better.

spiritualinspiration: “…It is high time to awake out of sleep; for now our salvation is nearer than when we first believed.” (Romans 13:11, NKJV) So many people today are living overwhelmed, exhausted and overburdened by the pressures of life. They’ve allowed themselves to live on autopilot, day in and day out, passive toward the things God has place in their hearts. If that’s you, now is the time to get your fire back! Let me encourage you to press past the things that would try to hold you back. God is saying, “It’s high time to wake up.” Notice that phrasing. Not just time but high time. That means it’s incredibly important because you are coming into a destiny moment! You are sitting on the launching pad. God is about to thrust you to a new level! Now is not the time to be passive, sloppy or undisciplined. Now more than ever, it’s time to get focused and start moving forward! Why is this so important? Just like the verse says, your salvation is nearer than it’s ever been. That means you are closer to seeing that dream come to pass than you’ve ever been. You are closer to meeting the right person, closer to that healing, closer to that breakthrough, promotion and provision. You may not be able to see it, but it can see you! Your victory is right around the corner. It’s high time to do what God is asking you to do so you can embrace the blessing He has for you!
