Pet Heaven (song), by DianaDee Osborne

ALBUM:      Amazing Creator 'n' Critters
Song location  http://DianaDeeOsborneSongs.com/Songs-2008-2012.php

Song Story:  THE  MUSIC:
The chorus of this song was written after a day of playing with my pets and watching wild birds, I found myself thinking, “I'd miss animals in heaven.”  And then found myself wondering:  “Why do we humans assume that God limits heaven to humans and His angels?  It's His World in Heaven as well as on Earth...  He can do anything He wants, including populate heaven with His critters.  
God made us in His image, to become like Him especially including in Love  (Genesis 1;26-27, Hebrews 2:17, First John 3:2).  
So if many of us would miss our animals friends, then.... :)  
   The chorus was put on the website in 2009.  The rest of the song  awaited God's 2011 inspiration of more ideas -- including all of these scriptures He guided me to really notice.  And it awaited my ability to create the right music with the tools of studio gear I did not have two years earlier.  And increased skills in tempo changes back and forth-- really REALLY needing God's help!

Song Story:  THE  LYRICS:
 No.  It's NOT  in the Bible. I've comforted many children, friends, myself especially at the sorrow of Samson my super-loving cat dying in November 2010, with this FACT:    NO-where in the Bible does it say that animals are NOT allowed into heaven.  The “theological” reason is that animals have no souls.          Here's my logical reasoning process:

    1.    After God created each set of things -- including animals -- God's Word says that He  “saw that it was good,” in Genesis 1.  EXCEPT after he created male and female people (1:27).  Think about that one:)   God blessed Adam and Eve.

    2.    Heaven is a place for worshiping our Great God.  Even the stars and planets can do that (Psalm 19) -- unless you think God through David in Psalm 19 lies.  Even the stones you walk on can praise God (Luke 19: 40) ---unless you think Jesus was exaggerating (“lying with a purpose in mind”). 

    3.    Jesus compared HIS love to the love of a mother hen gathering her chicks in a storm.  (Both Luke 13:34 and Matthew 23:37 emphasized these words of love.)   
So...... was Jesus using major exaggeration  or was He using the example that 
hens care about their little chicks?  
By analogy --- think of all the other animals that have shown caring -- toward their babies... or toward people like you.
Dedicated to our Creator God, 15 August 2009;
Renewed with joy at answered prayer: 10 Dec 2011

Now I’ve laid him down to rest -- my
long-time friend, my beloved pet.
God’s creatures bring SO much joy as my pet has since long ago.
Who decided pets have no souls?
Who declares that God’s Bible
does not mention animals in Heaven so they can’t go?
Who says pets do not praise God?
He’s praised by both rocks and stars.
Psalm 19 and Luke 19: 40, God’s Creation worships Him!

Isaiah  11  names wolves and lambs and bears…. and
cows and lions playing with a baby child somewhere and the
child was not… eaten!
Jesus compared His love to the love of a mother hen.  So
there in Luke 19: 40,  was Jesus just lying if
chickens and pets can’t love?
Smart people say animals have no souls, so can’t go to
heaven ‘cause they can’t praise God -- that false logic shows they don’t
know God’s Psalm 19.
Wise people know God’s Word is past our human logic . 
Isaiah 55 says that -- Pray James 1:5, God might
let pets into heaven.

BRIDGE  (twice, with scriptures interlude in between)
God’s Word never says that God wont welcome pets. 

Room for Fido, room for Rufus, 

room for Max and Buck and Spot.  There’s
room for Lassie, room for King. 

 Can God’s heaven ever fill UP?  SURELY NOT!
And First John says there’s room for me  in heaven….

room Fluffy, room for Snowball, 

room for Tabby, Boots and Socks.  There’s
room for Tigger, room for Kit.  

Can God’s heaven ever fill UP?  SURELY NOT!
And First John says there’s room for me  in heaven….

Jesus said in John 14, verse 2 and 3….
that He

left this world to go prepare not
one but many rooms for me, and

can’t our God do anything?  Surely God can make Heaven sing with
bird calls, dog barks, cat meows, right
with human voices that sing our

“Look at the birds of the air, for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they?
JESUS describing  God  in  Matthew 6:26. 

"O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, the one who kills the prophets and stones those who are sent to her! How often I wanted to gather your children together, as a hen gathers her brood under her wings, but you were not willing!”  -- JESUS,  Luke 13:34  (repeated in  Matthew 23: 37)
