Little Sophie is Alive & Well - Paise The Lord, Hallelujah !


By summerbreeze ~

Little Sophie is a lamb that was the last to be born of twins.

The mother Ewe had a hard time delivering Sophie, and when she was born she was not breathing. My Daughter had to use her 'lamb smarts' and do mouth to mouth, cleaning all the passage ways, then take the little lamb by its hind "ankles" and gently swing it back and forth while being held upside-down.

Finally Sophie started breathing.

Staying in the sheep barn all night, after the births, my exhausted daughter slept with her head on a bale of hay. The next morning brought a grim sight. Mother Ewe would not let Sophie nurse, instead she would head-butt the tiny lamb, sending it cartwheeling across the pen.

For four whole weeks my Daughter bottle fed the lamb every two hours, night and day.
Having a job where she works at home, made it easier for her, however she was bone tired just trying to get through the days.

On Mother's Day we went to the fundamentalist church that my Daughter and Son-In-Law attend.

My Granddaughter wanted Sophie to go too, so they put the lamb in a babies play pen that was outside, near the church door. A teenager from church helped her to "babysit".

Upon leaving the Mother's Day service, people gushed and cooed over Sophie

"Praise the Lord that she survived"

"You can thank Jesus for her being alive"

(and my favorite :

"The Lord loves animals so much, he just couldn't stand by and see her suffering so he rescued her"

All these things being said as my sleepy, red eyed Daughter stood there, ready to keel over.

What I'd like to know, is where in the bible did they get the inkling that their Lord loved animals ? ?
Were they reading a different bible ?

Genesis chapters 6 & 7
".....infants and animals drowned in unimaginable terror and agony."
Exodus 9:5
"God killed all of the Egyptian livestock with a plague"
Exodus 9:10
"God sent a plague of festering boils on the people and animals"
Deuteronomy 20:13-14
"God laid down the rules.....slaughter livestock..."
Judges 20:43-48
" the sword, including the animals.."
1 Samuel 15:7-8 " not spare them; put to death men and women, children and infants, cattle and sheep ( poor Sophie! ) and camels and donkeys."

Isn't it amazing how "The Lord", who sits on his lazy do-nothing ass, gets all the credit and praise for the hard exhausting work that we humans put forth here on earth ! ?

If christians out there had a boss, who got all the glory and kudos from the sweat off THEIR backs, then turned around and expected undying adulation from long do you think that they'd stay in that job ?

P.S.---little Sophie is thriving, in spite of having a bad mom and a bad "FATHER" !
