A Safe Place

As I walked with my nine year old great-nephew Cairon through the lake and Formal Gardens of the Founders Inn on Friday, we spotted this squirrel. Oops, came too close and as we did, it quickly scurried to safety above us.

Thank you Heavenly Father that in times that do not seem safe to us, times of perplexities, anxieties or danger, we too have a place that we can quickly scurry to for safety.

The name of the LORD is a strong fortress; the godly run to him and are safe.~ Proverbs 18:10

Another Wonder of Creation

The book The Birds of the World states: “birds evolved from reptiles at
least 150,000,000 years ago and possibly even earlier.” Genesis 1:21 states: “So God created great sea creatures and every living thing that scurries and swarms in the water, and every sort of bird--each producing offspring of the same kind. And God saw that it was good.”

During a recent visit to my favorite park, I was delighted to admire and capture this stately Brown Pelican. From Reptile to this beauty? I think I will choose to believe and accept the latter statement as fact. What do you say?
