I watch with a heavy heart as fires rage through California, again. The images of the flames bearing down on a busy freeway are chilling. Yet, when I saw a video of a young man getting off this busy freeway and going to the edge of the flames to save a rabbit who was trying to escape– I felt hope. My heart lightened as he finally scooped up the scared creature and brought it to safety. It was a beautiful gesture among all the destruction. This got me to thinking about how in life sometimes all we can do is save the rabbit—one beautiful being at a time–when life is bearing down on us.
I had planned on introducing my own animals this week, but I thought this moment was more important and perfectly symbolized the compassion of our existence and the beauty in the chaos.
My thoughts and prayers go out to all those effected by these winds and flames on the other side of California.

Here is a link to a December review of This Second Chance (the review is above the link).
Here is a link to a November review for This Second Chance (again, the review is above the link).
I’ve never gotten two reviews like this before…I think Zelina the angel from This Second Chance is hard at work again.
If you get a chance check out this picture my daughter got for me from a Supernatural Convention. As you can see, Zelina the angel and Castiel the angel are good friends.
Embrace your inner child– and any rabbit that crosses your path keep it safe, D.L. Finn
