I am so overwhelmed by the sanctity of life that is is almost a mental problem. My heart will break if I am washing the floor and accidentally wipe up an earwig into the mop. An earwig, for pete's sake. I cannot stand to think about killing the creatures of the Earth. If I hear them cutting down trees outside, I have to shut the doors and windows because it literally HURTS.
It is so bad, that I actually have acute anthropomorphism. I feel sorry for inanimate objects and it looks as if I passed it on to the kids. We will be in the store and my 5 year old son will see a product on the floor. He will put it back on the shelf so it can "be with its friends".
I like to think there is a purpose for people like me..the ones that are so sensitive that they can see life in everything around them. Maybe one day I will figure out why.

Jesus was also a carpenter, which meant killing trees, and also destroying habitats for wildlife no different than we do today.
And, what were all those sheep and oxen in the manger for anyway? Dinner and hard labor!
Jesus certainly slayed his share of animals, including cute, fuzzy, innocent, little, baby lambs!
