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.”

Be Kind

I didn’t plan on doing a post today, but with all of the negativity going on in the United States right now over the election, I thought this picture I found on Facebook had a great message.

Not all of us agree on who should or shouldn’t be President, but please remember to still be kind. We are all entitled to our own opinions, that is what makes us “individuals.” Don’t follow the crowd, think for yourself, and be kind!

Sunday Pause (Paws)

It’s Sunday, a day to rest! So pause from the busyness of life. Kick back, relax, and enjoy these precious animals doing just that! (turn up the sound)

The most precious pictures I get of my sweet Cino, is when she is sleeping.

HAPPY SUNDAY!

Look At Those Cute Faces

The reason I dedicate myself to helping animals so much is because there are already so many people who dedicate their lives to hurting them.

The above quote is the main reason why I have this blog. I want to help animals by spreading the word and connecting with others. We are their voice and animals indeed are feeling beings too.

Here are pics friends have sent in for me to use on my blog. I thought I would showcase the ones I have used so far along with a link to the post the picture was used on. That way, if you missed a post, you can click on the link and check it out now.

Enjoy these adorable furry friend faces!

OK, so the movie is “All Dogs Go to Heaven.” That’s true! But…actually ALL ANIMALS go to heaven.

Visit this link for some bible verses about animals in heaven: Bible Online

Romans 8:19-“For the creation waits in eager expectation for the children of God to be revealed.” “Creation” is every living thing.

So for those mourning the loss of a beloved pet, they are in good hands!
