Facebook users of fake accounts will persist to spread ‘fake news’ while those who use the platform to socialize will continue to share their personal lives.
This Facebook user deactivated her account and announces her leave of absence from TheArabDailyNews.com
By Eileen Fleming
I did not alert any of my nearly 5,000 Facebook friends that I deactivated my Facebook account on Thursday; so this publication will serve and is also my notice of a leave of absence from TheArabDailyNews.com.
I depart for many reasons but foremost is Maxine and Mavis; who began life as Josie and Birdie, two among a litter of eight hound mix pups birthed at the Misfit Animal Rescue in Eustis, Florida.
HOW and WHY they came to be mine, and daily bring to mind The Serenity Prayer is a long story I will soon write;
But I leave you dear reader with a few quotes about ‘man’s best friend’ and The Serenity Prayer:
Until one has loved an animal a part of one’s soul remains unawakened. Anatole France
Dogs do speak, but only to those who know how to listen.– Orhan Pamuk, author “My Name is Red”
Dogs are not our whole life, but they make our lives whole. – Roger Caras, photographer and writer
The dog is a gentleman; I hope to go to his heaven not man’s. – Mark Twain
Dogs are our link to paradise. They don’t know evil or jealousy or discontent. To sit with a dog on a hillside on a glorious afternoon is to be back in Eden, where doing nothing was not boring — it was peace. – Milan Kundera, Author
Petting, scratching, and cuddling a dog could be as soothing to the mind and heart as deep meditation and almost as good for the soul as prayer. – Dean Koontz, Author
The Serenity Prayer by Reinhold Niebuhr
God, give me grace to accept with serenity the things that cannot be changed, Courage to change the things, which should be changed, And the Wisdom to distinguish the one from the other.
Living one day at a time, Enjoying one moment at a time, Accepting hardship as a pathway to peace,
Taking, as Jesus did, This sinful world as it is, Not as I would have it.
Trusting that You will make all things right,
If I surrender to Your will,
So that I may be reasonably happy in this life,
And supremely happy with You forever in the next. Amen.
