May we look deep within ourselves, see what causes us pain, and determine not to cause the same pain and suffering on other living, sentient beings.
As my dear uncle Roger would say, “Find a new sport”.
You’ll be surprised by how much more joy, deep satisfaction and happiness you’ll gain by saving an animal instead of ending its life prematurely for fun and games.
“Don’t play with food” is not just about table manners.
It’s about respecting the source of life that must be lost, for our own.
My admiration for a man whose heart is so yielded to a loving God, through his deep songs of Love to Him, has found a level ground in reality today–we’re only human and we’re bound to disappoint.
Today, I am allowed to see his human side, his love for hunting and the careless displays of his trophies for the world to see. The blood oozing out from the beautiful creature unto the snow and his happy grin as he clutches the horns of a wide-eyed deer, leaves me puzzled and saddened.
I too, have my own weaknesses and when scrutinised closely, will be a source of disappointment. I’m only human.
But it gives me hope that even in our imperfection, Perfect Love has been demonstrated for us. And everyday, is another chance to be a living reflection of Love, to the world.
Can we begin by loving His creation?
“Fear less, hope more; Eat less, chew more; Whine less, breathe more; Talk less, say more; Love more, and all good things will be yours.”- Swedish Proverb
