When I started to date my wife Esther, we lived pretty far from each other. Before she left back for her home one visit, she bought me a fish. Thinking this over, I came to a conclusion that this might be some sort of test, can I keep a fish alive? Well, the good news was that it was a beta fish, they are pretty sturdy little guys. That fish lived way past our dating lives into our marriage, good fish.
Pets are wonderful things, aren’t they? They keep us company, we have a focus of attention, and in some cases, they just look into us with love. Many of us, have been blessed with wonderful pets, and as a pet owner, they have been a blessing from God.
What is the price of two sparrows—one copper coin? But not a single sparrow can fall to the ground without your Father knowing it.
Our dog Sugar passed away this week, it was a sad moment for all of us. We all shed tears, and feel the loss of a part of our family. Thirteen years is a long time. She lived what I hope was a good life. There were so many happy moments, and we will cherish her memory for the rest of our lives.
God is so kind to us, to let these precious little animals come into our lives. They bring us so much comfort, and we all better for them to be a part of our lives. God died for humanity, but He also loves every little pet. I hope there are pets in heaven. And for every soul that makes it into the kingdom, I am hoping that we will all be gathered together with our “joys” again.
For all of you who have ever felt the loss of a little animal, I wish you my condolences. What a blessed day it will be, when there will be no more death for anything ever again.
