The blessing of pets and animals is often celebrated on October 4, the feast of St. Francis of Assisi, or on a Sunday near that date. But, for me, as God’s animal welfare advocate, blessing of pets and all animals is EVERY SINGLE DAY!

(God’s Sonnet by Timothy J. Verret; “it’s how I cope to hope in being ‘Dang, blessed!’ from the Free Gift of God’s Grace”)

“Dang, you’re blessed!” You got everything you need.

“Dang, you’re sad!” You’ve been hurt. You got it all

in front of you. Don’t you know you’ve been freed

from hurts? Jesus is “Dang!” each time you fall.

“Dang, I’m blessed!” I’m “new” in my older years.

“Dang, I’m sad!” I still hurt me from disgrace.

I don’t honor me. I still count my tears.

Christ counts them as battle scars to my face.

“Dang, we’re blessed! But it’s not based on our works.

If it were, blessed would no longer be Grace.”

We can’t earn Grace as though it were “work perks.”

Free Gift from God. When sad, that’s human race.

We make Jesus First; we are second best.

We make it about God’s Grace. “Dang, we’re blessed!”
