Healing Words of the day by BluesWolf

Frequently updated poems/prose to help heal your heart.

Go to the Words of the day

RainbowThe Rainbow Bridge

Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.

When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge.

There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together.

There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.

All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor; those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by.

The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.

They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent; His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.

You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.

Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together….

Candle Ceremony in Hebrew 

On Monday evenings all across the globe we light candles in memory of our
pets who have gone on to Rainbow Bridge. It is a very healing ritual with no adherence to any religion or
creed, just a simple lighting of candles to bring us all together.

While there is an on-line Ceremony in our Chat Room every Monday, the Candle Ceremony does not have to be done on-line. Each of us can light our candles
in our own way, and privately, but since we share a common love and since
most of us do light them at the same time, we are joined in love and in

Candle lighting times are…


10 PM Eastern

9 PM Central

8 PM Mountain

7 PM Pacific

6 PM Alaska

5 PM Hawaii

Check the above Countdown Clock to be sure of the time for your location.

We also have online lists of the pets we honor in the Monday Candle Ceremony:

The Bridgelist for those pets who have passed on to the Rainbow Bridge and the Special
list for those pets who are ill or have special physical needs.

You are invited to add your pets to these lists at no cost to you.
