Love of Healing.

In her eyes you can see it

Every time I ask,

Ask her about her veterinarian training.

Her face changes,

That look that comes over her,

That look that takes me,

Takes me into her world,

Her world of helping animals.

From that look I knew,

I knew that she had found her life,

The life for which she was born,

Her world in which she would be ecstatic

In bringing health back to all creatures.

A lady whose face showed the wonder,

The wonder of the life

Into which she would bring happiness,

Happiness and love to all.

    Heart warming. My neice is wanting to be a teacher and spends much of her time looking after little ones and working in a nearby school - she has an unconditional offer and starts Uni in Sept - the look of joy on her face when she is with children is a joy to behold - she is marvelous with them. This is a super wrire Andy and thankfully there are young people like this all over which gives us all hope.

      She is a young lady who has managed to go towards a future that she will love, when I ask her her face changes into one of absolute delight about what she will be doing, very rare to see nowadys in the youngsters.

      Ahh lovely write Gold. RSPCA adverts on telly can't be watered down really. They show cruelty of man to animals, and the caring work of the RSPCA.
      There's Christian healing ministry too, I believe, and not necessarily on a spiritual plane, there are the medical professions, etc too. All that tend to body, spirit, or soul.
      I believe it has a spiritual plane too, as it all helps, directly or indirectly, to further the Kingdom of God, one aspect of which is healing (as in some of my poems on Mark's Gospel).
      Guineas in my pic say 'Thank you!'
