Sunday Pause (Paws): Things You Enjoy

It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, and enjoy the things you enjoy doing.

I enjoy writing poetry and a more recently discovered passion of photography. Not even the photography as much as the editing and fun you can have with one single photo.

Below is an image I had fun creating to go along with a poem I found on Facebook. (Note: I contacted the author of the poem and she knows I am using it)

Did You Know?

Animal abuse, a very sad topic, but one that needs to be given attention.

Did you know animal abuse isn’t just someone hitting or hurting their own pet?

Did you know animals are being abused daily and we are allowing it?

On the packaging of items that are organic, such as cheese, it says “Pasture Raised Cows.” There are WAY less organic products available than non-organic products. So what is happening to the other cows?

Sunday Pause (Paws): Cino Going Back to the Vet

cino-looking-up

It’s Sunday! This Sunday I wanted to ask if you’ll take a break from the busyness and once again say a prayer for Cino.

Some of you know that back in January I had to bring Cino in for an ultrasound. Here is the post if you haven’t read it: Sunday Pause (Paws): Prayers for Cino. This Tuesday she will be going in for her annual physical. But we will also be checking to see if there is any blood in her urine as there has been the last few times.

Cino & I are both picky about what she eats. She doesn’t always want to eat what I want her to eat and I don’t always want her to eat what she wants to. She was really good about eating the food the veterinarian said we should try for her little kidney stone, but then decided one day she wanted nothing more to do with it. Continue reading

Dominion Over Animals…How Do We Interpret This?

I finally took some time this morning to read over the online debate another blogger participated in and shared with me. They were discussing all animals and what the bible says about them. The discussion started on the topic of elephants in circuses.

There is a lot of confusion out there about the bible and what God says about animals.

Genesis 1:26-Then God said, “Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness, so that they may rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky, over the livestock and all the wild animals, and over all the creatures that move along the ground.”

For one thing, it says “in our own likeness.” Does anyone believe God would abuse animals?

Some synonyms for the word “dominion” are: power, rule, superior. Who says “power”, “ruling”, or “superiority” is a bad thing, a ticket to harm? Why is that assumed? As loving and beautiful as God is, why wouldn’t it be assumed that it meant to care, provide, guide, teach, and protect? Continue reading

It’s Just An Animal

How many of you have come across someone who has said to you, “it’s just an animal!”? Well, I don’t know about you, but I can’t even express how frustrating this is to me.

A young blogger contacted me about a debate she is having with someone over the use of animals in entertainment. It sounds like their discussion has gotten heated and the last thing I know is that he said the following comment about elephants, “Their tusks are useful and men want to use them. They are just animals.” This was very upsetting for the blogger. Continue reading
