The Breath Of Life…

Genesis 1:24-25 KJV

24 And God said, Let the earth bring forth the living creature after his kind, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after his kind: and it was so. 25 And God made the beast of the earth after his kind, and cattle after their kind, and every thing that creepeth upon the earth after his kind: and God saw that it was good.

Dedicated to my beloved “Sky Kitty” who passed away July 13th, 2019 of old age. She was over 2 decades old. I miss her dearly.

The Bible tells us that God made every living thing in the book of Genesis, including man of course. In these first few verses God lets us know His creation is “good”. And, while the fall of man affected all of creation including our beloved pets, animals, and even our planet, at the passing of my gentle, attentive, loving and faithful “Sky Kitty” I am reminded that she was filled with the “breath of life” that God imparted to every living thing.

It is not my intent to infer, teach, or speak on the subject of animals in heaven here, I’m just giving thanks to the Lord for the comfort some of them bring to our lives, more particularly “Sky Kitty” who always greeted me when I came home, was always faithful, comforting, and ready to cuddle nearby or in my lap. My point is simple, in that our pets are gifts from God, given to us by Him, endowed with His “breath of life” to enrich our lives. Thank you Lord for “Sky Kitty”! I miss her so much!

The top photo shows “Sky Kitty” and my young cat named “Moo” snuggling, while the bottom picture is of “Moo” staking her proprietary claim on one of my legs.

I hope you will forgive some of my silliness as an old geezer! But, I am thankful for the love of God that is given to us also in the little things like the animals that are special to us. Especially the furry fluffy kind!
