I love animals. I’ve had pets since I was a child. I used to consider myself strictly a “dog person”. That was true until the last several years. Now I just consider myself an “animal person”… A lover of all things furry or feathered.
It wasn’t until I was in my 40’s and I moved out to the country with my family that I had opportunity to own several animals. All of which are pets….even the chickens! Seriously, if I had my way I’d have my own petting zoo.
Yes, I know animals can be a lot of work. They can be stinky and messy and shed like nothing I’ve ever seen. Doesn’t matter. They give love and devotion that can make me smile on even the worst of days.
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.” — Genesis 1
So thankful for my furry and feathered friends.
