Happy Mother's Day

Today on the eve of Mother’s Day, my evening stroll through the park was enhanced by the sighting of this beautiful Mallard family showing off their new chicks while enjoying the 71˚ warmth along with the crisp spring breeze. I waited patiently for the ideal pose to grace my camera. I think the wait 
was worthwhile, do you?
A mother and her children … inseparable, my Heavenly Father and His promises to His children and to their children … unwavering!
“I will pour out my Spirit on your descendants, and my blessing on your children1.”
1. Isaiah 44:3b

You've done it again, Merle. You and your camera are amazing. Patience certainly paid off in these photos. I can't stop looking at those babies bobbing along on the water. Too cute! Great scripture to tie in, also.
