Scripture: "You have given him dominion over the works of your hands; you have put all things under his feet, all sheep and oxen, and also the beasts of the field, the birds of the heavens, and the fish of the sea, whatever passes along the paths of the seas. O Lord, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth!"
Psalm 8: 6-9
Few words are needed to express our love of animals, domestic, wild, in our homes, the sea, the air, the mountains, valleys & deserts the world over. Their presence brings grace and blessing to our planet.
We celebrated our very own special creatures with "Pets Unleashed" at church, and a Blessing of the Animals by Rev. Tom on Rowley's Town Common. Whether living, domestic or wild, large or small, "stuffed" with sweetness, or passed into their eternal life, the joy and comfort they give us is boundless.
May their unconditional love and peace be a source of strength every moment of our lives.
