Hi my name is Cheryl. I too love animals as I love God, Jesus, the Holy Spirit and myself. I am so blessed to have been given this gift of love and compassion for animals and to be able to connect to them the way I do. I have 2 dogs, a bird and a tank full of fish. They are my children. Three years ago, I lost my furry daughter and it has been painful and devastating to live without her. I know I will see her again some day without a doubt as well as all the lil sweethearts God gave me.
I became a Veterinary Assistant to better take care of my animal friends and hopefully make a career out of it. Unfortunately, that hasn't been the case. I can't get a job to save my life. I guess God has other plans for me. I just don't know what.
I found your website last night and I have been rejoicing ever since. I suddenly don't feel so alone and isolated. I have been looking for a church home but I have been so disappointed with every church and their statement of faith, it has disgusted me! I can't find one church that has any kind of animal ministry at all! I know I can start one but the point is that I CAN'T find one! I am like many animal lovers, I feel that the spiritual community should be the first place to find those who love animals but that hasn't been the case! How wrong is that!? How am I supposed to find a church home that I believe in if I can't find what should be a given? So, I found this website, I put my head back, smiled with contentment and thanked God. And a big thank you to all of you!
I read the letters regarding hunting and fishing and I thanked God once again for finding others that feel the same (meaning all of you). I too believe that if you are a Christian and Christ Jesus is living through you, you would never EVER kill or harm any of Gods creation. Earth should be a reflection of Heaven and we should be striving for the high road. I also believe that anyone that hunts or fishes will go through the pain and suffering that every animal he/she willfully murdered.
Thank you once again for everything you are doing. My heart is with you and you are in my prayers.
Much love, Cheryl
P.S. Please pray for me because so much sadness has been falling upon me.
