Observation - August 3

Animals are known to show comfort to young and old, sick or healthy. I love animals and shed tears when I see an animal being mistreated.

Even as a child I told my neighbour when I saw him not treating an animal right. My mother would tell me that I would be bitten by an animal some day. It never happened. We used to go to a Bible study where there were several dogs. My friend would drive my car, because I was scared of ice and snow, but I would get out of the car first to chase away the dogs, because she was afraid of them. I feel sad when I hear of people who have to part with their pet, because they can not be with them anymore. My little dog has been a comfort to me at times. She knows when I do not feel well and gives me an extra snuggle.

The Bible tells us in Genesis 1:26 that we shall have dominion over the animals, not cruelty, mistreatment.

In this hot weather let us think of our animals this week.
