Hug of the Day...to BuffaloGal1960 on HubPages
- BuffaloGal1960 on HubPages
I currently reside near Buffalo, Missouri. Crowfoot, a Blackfoot warrior and orator once said: "What is life? It is the flash of a firefly in the...
Listen to the Sound of the Whippoorwill Calling
The Native Americans believe that the whippoorwill can sense a soul departing and capture it as it leaves.
Just Who Is BuffaloGal1960?
It is such a joy for me to give a great big "Hug" to an incredible "Gal" from Buffalo, Missouri, T. Clifton aka BuffaloGal1960, who is relatively new to HP Town. She is full of life, stands her ground and writes profound articles to give one pause. She has been writing on HubPages for the past three months. She is most certainly a writer extraordinaire with a heart full of passion, which shines through in her interesting and thought-provoking writes.
BuffaloGal1960 landed in Buffalo, Missouri, only after having moved at least 32 times in her life! She has lived in six different states and in two other countries. Her travels are extensive, in that she has traveled over 30 states here in the United States, through thousands of cities.
What I love about BuffaloGal1960 is that she loves serving others, which is so apparent in her writing. She seems to be a no non-sense type of caring person who one would enjoy just spending time sitting with on her porch and listening to the song of the whippoorwill. She is a woman after God's own heart and she shares that she admires God's creation and lives in the joy that God intended. As she puts it, "...living in the joy that God intended before the vapor of life is gone." How beautiful!
BuffaloGal1960s interests include playing her dobro, autoharp, writing (which she shares is therapy and the window to her soul), spending time with her children and just living life to the fullest. She is also a songwriter and dreams of recording some of her gospel songs.
Where She Loves to Roam and now Calls Home
- MY JOURNEY TO BUFFALO, MISSOURI (A Place To Call Home)
In my lifetime, I have moved at least 32 times, but none have been as good as this one. Buffalo, Missouri - you make me proud to be a small town Missouri (Buffalo) gal!
Finding a Place to Call Home
Anything and everything one wants to know about Buffalo, Missouri, where BuffaloGal1960 is calling home now, is shared in her most insightful hub linked here. She loves the small town life and writes all about the appeal of small town life right there in the very middle of the United States.
The surrounding areas include Branson, Missouri, which is just a bit more than an hour away. Also, Tulsa, Oklahoma, Kansas City and Six Flags over St. Louis are all less than one day's drive away. Either way she decides to venture out, she states that she is a winner. Specifically, she is situated between Buffalo and Bennett Springs, Missouri.
A Servant's Heart
- PROSECUTING POVERTY (Has America Gone Mad?)
The Carolinas have now joined other states in prosecuting the homeless. While my only qualification in writing this article is my compassion, I do hope to entertain solutions to the more qualified.
What do you think about charging a fee to feed the homeless?
You Mean I Cannot Give a Homeless Person a Sandwich Without the Possibility of Arrest!
One of BuffaloGal1960s most poignant writes that really caught my attention, is her profound and thought-provoking piece, "Prosecuting Poverty (Has America Gone Mad?)" and if you read it, you will understand why.
I believe this piece is appropriate to be included as part of the H.O.W. (Humanity One World) movement that fellow hubber, billybuc, has initiated. However, that will be up to billybuc and BuffaloGal1960 to decide.
This piece here brings awareness to the sad reality of what is going on as relates to those who simply want to use their own money out of their own pockets to help feed the homeless, and their having to obtain a permit to do so at the cost of $1,600, when it most likely would not even be approved!
I second BuffaloGal1960s question, "Has America gone mad?"
Please read more as to this shocking revelation linked here, where BuffaloGal1960 brings awareness to such nonsense and presents great arguments against such mindless actions.
Why She Calls Her Special Friends the "Butterfly Ladies"
Miraculous Transformation of Abused Women
BuffaloGal1960 has met and befriended some special ladies who have overcome some of the worst ordeals in this life, yet who have transformed into the most beautiful women she has ever met inside and out.
These "Butterfly Ladies" have all undergone miraculous transformations. They have all experience the healing of wounds of the past and going from feeling small and insignificant to being truly set free and experiencing a beautiful transformation. No looking back for these lovely women, for the past is just that, the past, and living in this present day with wondrous hope for the future, is the only way to live.
A Haunting Reenactment
- CHEROKEE PEOPLE
A people of strength
Cherokee People - Trail of Tears
During one of America's darkest periods, President Andrew Jackson's Indian Removal Act of 1830, forced removal of the Cherokee Nation to Oklahoma in 1838. This caused nearly a quarter of the Cherokee National to die during the Trail of Tears, arriving in Indian Territory with few elders and even fewer children.
BuffaloGal1960 writes a haunting piece here, giving an eye-opening account and insight into the horrors the Cherokee people, a civilized tribe, endured. What is most stirring in this write is where she writes in first person "Trail They Cried On", depicting the courage of the Cherokee people during a most tumultuous time.
Looking to Heaven
- A FLAWLESS HEAVEN
A peak inside heaven's gates, where sorrow is no more, where colors are crisp, the sea is crystal clear and no death can be found.
I Can only Imagine
After reading this beautiful poem about what awaits beyond this life, I wept. I read it again and I wept. I believe BuffaloGal1960 may have had a vision of Heaven for such words of beauty to pour out of her very soul.
I am reminded of the scripture verse found in 1 Corinthians 2:9 which states, "However, as it is written: 'What no eye has seen, what no ear has heard, and what no human mind has conceived' -- the things God has prepared for those who love him--"
Knowing of this scripture, and then reading her heartfelt piece here, I am convinced that God must have revealed such to her in a dream or a vision.
Either way, all who read will be blessed beyond measure in reading her glorious words. The title, in and of itself, lends to what words lie in wait to be read and profoundly felt by the heart.
Surrounded by His Glory
