Our beloved pets!
We remember our first dog and cat and how much we loved them.
Our Lord valued animals.
Matthew 6: 26 26 Look at the birds of the air: they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they?
Our pets loves people more than food and is filled with affection. They are always happy come rain or shine and holds no grudges whatsoever, no matter how they are treated.
And our pets, part of the family, teach us many things about life.
Job 12:7-9 “Ask the beasts, and they will teach you; the birds of the heavens, and they will tell you; or the bushes of the earth, and they will teach you; and the fish of the sea will declare to you. Who among all these does not know that the hand of the Lord has done this?”
The pets in this video like us grow old and die. We mourn and lament. Life goes on but just as when people die and leave us there is a hole in our life where this special creature occupied.
God created the earth and filled it with life and made it good. We also as God's co-regents love and enjoy the goodness found in his animals.
