Went outside (in the bitter cold) to throw the Frisbee for the dogs. Meet Tiko, Misty, and (the airborne) Poppet.
And the photo below is a solo shot of Poppet. Now doesn’t she just look like a champion?
And God said, “Let the earth bring forth every kind of animal — livestock, small animals, and wildlife.” And so it was. God made all sorts of wild animals, livestock, and small animals, each able to reproduce more of its own kind. And God saw that it was good.
(Gen 1:24-25, NLT)
And God made those small animals for us to enjoy, I think. Our pets (Delilah the artistocratic Persian is not in these photos; she would never stoop so low as to be in a picture with a canine!) bring us great pleasure. Thank You, Lord, for giving us these animals to care for and to treasure.
