“Baby Rabbits Cannot Swim in Pools” copyright 2012 John J. Rigo, Texas’ Poet

My Baby Rabbit standing in front of home door to say “Thank You” this morning on June 14th 2012.

 
Updated January 31st, 2014:  I forgot I wrote this poem back in June of 2012.  Someone had clicked it on my blog site.  The home is now for sale and soon will be listed with DFW Realty.  In the reread I realized there are many messages here other than the life saved.  See if you can also find them, as I now found those messages this early morning.
 
 
 
It was both sad and latter became
a joyful blessing
when I found out
baby rabbits cannot swim in pools.
 
Yesterday I lost one baby rabbit in my pool
while happily I was able to save
a second baby rabbit
who jumped into my pool.
 
The first one I never saw enter the pool
it was too late to save her
when I saw her body floating in the water.
 
The second one shot pass me latter in the afternoon
while I was mowing my back yard.
She headed for the pool water.
 
I quickly grabbed my leaf scoop
and pulled her out of the water
before she went down for the count. 
 
I was filled with joy in seeing her
run happily to the golf course behind my home.
There is no greater joy
than saving a life
no matter how small it is.
 
Early the next morning
she was happily
eating grass in my yard.
She latter in the morning
came to my front door
to say “Thank You.”
 
Such is the same
in our lifepaths.
We cannot save all those
who cross our paths.
Still the one we save
can be
the most precious.

“Praise and Glory to Yahweh My Lord and God’ Courtesy of allposters.com

 
 
I render praise to Yahweh my Lord and God.
He has relinquished all my enemies.
My camp was surrounded.
 
It seemed I was without hope.
My enemies brought false witness against me.
They cursed my name.  
A name of Praise given to me
by My Lord and God.
 
Each of my enemies were destroyed.
Their wealth was removed from their granaries.
There bodies were sickened with disease.
Their eyes locked into death before them. 
 
All Praise and Glory to Yahweh this day.
I see before me the beauty of a new day.
My enemies have become dust before me.

This blog posting is a great follow-up to the President’s Fifth State of the Union Speech of last night on January 29, 2014. Whatever planet Obama thinks he is President of, is not of this earth.

Obamanomics: Missing the Obvious

AVIK ROY: On Inequality, Obama Fails His Own Test.

Obama-Asia-EmptyChair

During President Barack Obama’s 2014 State of the Union address on Tuesday night, one section stood out. “After four years of economic growth,” said the president, “corporate profits and stock prices have rarely been higher, and those at the top have never done better. But average wages have barely budged. Inequality has deepened. Upward mobility has stalled.” But Obama left unstated the most important point of all: Under his watch and thanks to his policies, those at the bottom of the ladder face fewer and fewer opportunities to get ahead. Worse still, most of the policies he proposed during his address would make social and economic mobility even harder.

“Texas ranked 10th nationwide in a measure of states with the lowest costs of living. That is because the state has a predictable and relatively light regulatory…

Precious Freedoms
Freedoms that my Brothers
and my Sisters
died for on the battle fields
of America.
 
Let not these Freedoms
be wrenched from our bloody hands.
Stand with our Lord and Savior
against these souless Evils.
 
They are attempting to destroy
America’s holy land.
A land that I love.
 
Across this land
let our voices ring in one cry
above the roar of their falsehoods.
Freedom…….freedom.
We will defend her to the death.

Vote June 18th 2011 for Steve Bell for McKinney At-Large on city council.

 

Yesterday on our weekly trip to McKinney, Texas I met once again, my old friend Steve Bell at the local Jason’s.  I supported Steve in his run for the city council of McKinney in 2011.  Sadly Steve lost his bid.  Mr. Bell would have made a great city council person for the city of McKinney.

There was a certain grace to the look of him facing death.
He did not seem to have succumbed to the idea of dying.
He stood tall and proud with a direct look into your eyes.
His bearing, his eyes, said many things.
 
His eyes said he had lived a life of honor
and without shame
as to who
and what he was
as a person.
 
If he was guilty of any deep emotion
it was to have loved too much.
He had loved many in his life
giving all he had to give
to each relationship
without a reserve held.
He was always the one hurt
the deepest in the leaving.
 
If you ever knew him
you would never forget him
whether for a few minutes or several years
in the sharing part of a day with him.
 
He lived as a man
protecting the ones he loved.
He loved in the best of circumstances.
He loved in the worst of circumstances.
 
I am glad I got to know him on a personal level.
There were days of doubt in knowing this person.
“Yes” as one said about him in a dissenting way
“He always came out smelling like a rose.”
 You ask, “How did I know this man so well?”
It was easy knowing him
for you see
he was me.
