Does heaven have a place for animals? I don’t know but many people believe so, and it gives them great comfort. How much do you love your pet? Here are some pet thoughts to enjoy.
To make Heaven the perfect resting place for loved ones we adore, God made sure those Pearly Gates contained a doggy door. (Unknown)
“I guess you don’t really own a dog, you rent them, and you have to be thankful that you had a long lease.” (Joe Garagiola)
“Dogs are our link to paradise. They don’t know evil or jealousy or discontent. To sit with a dog on a hillside on a glorious afternoon is to be back in Eden, where doing nothing was not boring…. it was peace.” (Milan Kundera)
“Animals are such agreeable friends; they ask no questions, they pass no criticisms.” (George Eliot)
“One who possessed beauty without vanity, strength without insolence, Courage without ferocity, and all the virtues of Man without his vices.” (Lord Byron)
God made the wild animals according to their kinds, the livestock according to their kinds, and all the creatures that move along the ground according to their kinds. And God saw that it was good. (Genesis 1:25, NIV)
No matter what you believe about animals going to heaven, don’t we all concede that they are indeed a blessing here?
Prayer- Lord, thank you for creating animals to sustain us, and love us unconditionally…for they model what you do for us every day. Amen.
