Those of us who love dogs believe there is no coincidence that dog is God spelled backwards. These little creatures do a wonderful job of replicating our heavenly Father's unconditional love for us.
I presently have a dog named Maya, and oh, how I adore this beautiful little "rescue girl". I know millions of people feel the same way about their dogs. Time spent with these loving and loyal pets is often preferred to the company of other people. Because we are grateful that these furry beings are part of our earthly family, loving gestures are lavished on them many times each day.
Just think, without our Creator we wouldn't even have these awesome creatures, so.......doesn't it seem right to give Jesus even more acknowledgement?
