Christmas at Rainbow Bridge

As the midnight hour approaches on Christmas Eve, a tremendous celebration begins. If you listen closely you will hear the exuberant sound of Bridgekids preparing for the remarkable moment that comes but once a year. Puppies romp through the tall green grass, chasing butterflies and rolling over and over until fits of giggles bring them to a tumbling stop. The volume increases as kittens, cats, tigers and lions purr in pure delight while the wings of snow white doves gently caress the air. The babbling brook that runs beneath Rainbow Bridge overflows onto the edge of mossy banks and fins of treasured aquatic life quiver in anticipation of this most joyous event. Nestled in the midst of this happy choir of Bridgekids are the littlest angel tots staring in awe at the majestic Christmas tree adorned with flowing strands of angel hair. Effervescent, twinkling stars seesaw elegantly from the sky and land in glorious harmony upon the stoic limbs of Heaven's most perfect Christmas tree. Swaying to and fro in nearby rocking chairs are grandmothers, grandfathers, parents, aunts, uncles and loved ones. The sound of their whispered lullabies permeate the air as they sing to tiny angel babies resting quietly in their arms.

Like magic the clock approaches midnight and a great stirring is heard in the distance. Each Bridgekid stops and listens, knowing the time is near, and they choose a fleecy cloud on which to snuggle. The roar of purrs drops to barely an audible hum, the babbling brook ripples hypnotically and the flutter of downy feathered wings fall silent. Heaven's spirited toddlers climb expectantly upon the laps of angels while babies coo in tranquil unison.


Amidst the warm glow of candle light which rises from the earth below, the arms of the Bridge Keeper envelop the heavens and into the precious hands of each child and in front of each animal a holy gift is placed. With grand exuberance the ribbons are removed and left to fly on a tender breeze where they dissolve into showers of angel dust. As the golden lids of these heavenly gifts are raised, an amazing aura fills the sky, reaching down to the very core of the earth. Ascending from each and every box is the greatest gift of all…unending, unconditional, all-encompassing love. This blessed love gently wraps itself around the cherished souls of heaven, warming their hearts with beacons of radiant light and bringing forth from angels an exquisite chorus. As the clock strikes midnight the distance between heaven and earth is vanished. It is at this very moment on Christmas Eve that the Bridge Keeper, His children, angels and Bridgekids send a message to their earthly loved ones on the wings of this unbridled love.

Listening carefully with an open heart we will hear the familiar voice of our own angel whisper softly into our ear their Christmas message..."Let me share with you this love of mine, always and forever. When you need me know that I am here. I have not left you for I am in your heart where I belong. Our love is eternal as is the brilliant glow of candlelight which illuminates the path to the heavens and Rainbow Bridge. I wait patiently as do you for our inevitable and glorious reunion. I love you, I love you, I love you."

A Cat's Christmas Prayer

Whoever made the stars that shine,
Whoever made green trees of pine,
Whoever dreamed up fish and mice,
Or sun and rain and snow and ice,
Must have the power in His paws
To help when there's a worthy cause.
Whoever gave the birds a nest
Will grant this humble cat's request.

For needy felines everywhere,
I meow my little Christmas prayer.
Please heal the sick
And cheer the sad,
Forgive the naughty,
and excuse the bad.
 
One more simple thing I ask:
A pool of sunlight in which to bask,
Plus a plate of food,
A safe, warm house,
A loving lap, a catnip mouse.
Freedom from fleas, furballs, and mats,
And homes for all the homeless cats.
 
from A Cat's Christmas by Stefanie Samek

I'm Getting Nuttin' For Christmas
Broke my boogie mat on Tiffany's  hed;
Oh I tink she snitshed on mwe.
I hid a dead frog in Chrissy's bed;
Oh I tink she snitshed on mwe.
I spilled sum milk on Meowmie's rug;
I mayd  Charlie eat a bug;
But isn't dat good!!!
Oh I tink somebody snitshed on mwe.

CHORUS: Oh,
I gettin' nuttin' for Christmas
Meowmie and fafur  are mad.
I'm gettin' nuttin' for Christmas
'Cauws I ain't been nuttin' but bad.

I won't be seeing Santa Claws;
OH cauwse' sumbody snitched on mwe.
He won't come visit mwe becaws
Sumebody snitched on me.
Next year I bees goin strayet;
Next year I bees good, just waits
I wuds start nows, but it tu late;
Cause' somebody snitched on me.
So you bedder be good whaderur mew do
'Cawse if mew iz bad, I'z warnin mew,
Mew gettin nuttin' fur Christmas tu!!!

How dull the holidays must be for the catless!!

    Who is there to climb the tree and peek out at you from amongst the
    ornaments?

    Who sits innocently at your feet whilst you explain to the neighbor why only
    the top 1/3 of your tree is decorated?

    Who watches in dismay whilst you lash the tree to the banister with nylon
    climbers rope?

    Who bats at the end of your pen as you address Christmas cards making them
  look as if you contracted a nervous condition?

    Who drapes themselves over address books, lists, etc.. and places you in the
    uncivilized position of peeling stamps off the cats butt?

    Who lays themselves on virgin wrapping paper refusing to budge even as you
    begin wrapping THEM to see how far they'll let you get before they MOVE!!?

    Who quietly unties the beautiful ribbon you found on sale because ...
    well... that's why you put it there right?? I mean, why else would you have
  ribbon?

    Who sits quietly in your lap on Christmas Eve watching "A Christmas Carol"
    with you until you get up to potty and return to find his head wedged in
    your glass of milk?

    Who, on Christmas morning, romps and frolics amongst the discarded paper,
    boxes, ribbons and bows, spreading them over an area roughly the size of
    Rhode Island?

    Who can add to the joy of the season in that unmistakable feline fashion?

    How boring is a catless Christmas!

RESCUE ON CHRISTMAS


Twas the night  before Christmas when all thru the house,
Not a creature was stirring not  even a mouse.

The stockings were hung by the chimney  with care,
In hopes that St. Nickolaus soon would be there.

The children all nestled all snug in their beds,
With No thought of the dog filling their heads.
And  mamma in her kerchief and I in my cap,
Knew the dog was cold, but  didn't care about that.

When out on the lawn there  arose such a clatter,
I sprang from the bed to see what was the  matter!

Away to the window I flew like a flash,
Figuring the dog broke his chain and got into the trash.

The moon on the breast of the new fallen snow
Gave  the luster of mid-day to objects below.

When what to my  wondering eyes should appear-
But Santa Clause with eyes full of  tears
He unchained the dog once so lively and  quick,
Last years Xmas present now painfully sick

More rapid than eagles he called the dog's name
And  the dog ran right to him despite, all his pain.

Now  Dasher, now Dancer, now Prancer and Vixen.
On Comet on Cupid on  Donner and Blitzen!

To the top of the porch to the top  of the wall-
Let's find him a home where he'll be loved by  all.

I knew in an instant there'd be no gifts this  year,
For Santa had made one thing very clear

The gift of a dog is not just for the season-We had gotten the  dog for all the wrong reasons

In our haste to think of  the kids-what a gift!
There was one important thing that we  missed.
A dog should be family, and cared for the  same
You don't give a Gift, then put it on a chain

And I heard him explain as he rode out of site
YOU  WEREN'T GIVEN A GIFT, YOU WERE GIVEN A LIFE!

Palm trees wave, are you listening?
In the pool, water's glistening,
A beautiful sight, we're happy tonight,
 
Living in a Florida Wonderland. Gone away is the blizzard,
Here to stay is the lizard,
A Warm sunny day, we like it that way,
Living in a Florida Wonderland.
 
In the swamps, we will have a picnic,
gators, sand and rattlesnakes and sun.
Christmas dinner is an old tradition,
It's collard greens and cornbread by the ton.
 
Later on, we'll perspire,
Temperatures rise ever higher,
A warm sunny day, we like it that way,
Living in a Florida Wonderland.
