Red-Eared Slider


I learn so many necessary lessons from nature. This week, I observed this red-eared turtle as he moved through the water around him with ease, agility and comfort. He seemed to say "this is how you keep your head above water."
Thank you Mr. Turtle ... thank you! 

“When you go through deep waters, I will be with you. When you go through rivers of difficulty, you will not drown.1

Watched

One of the definitions of the word watch is: “to guard, to tend, or oversee, especially for protection or safekeeping.” This chubby tabby cat watched me cautiously on one of my recent early morning ventures searching for interesting photos. As his keen eyes followed me, I was reminded of Scripture which speak of the watchful eyes of my Heavenly Father ~ “I am with you and will watch over you wherever you go1 … I will advise you and watch over you2 … I will watch over your life3 … I will hold you by your hand and watch over you.4.” Tabby didn’t seem to feel safe with me watching him, because he ran when I tried to come nearer. Regardless, I thought his photos  spotlighting today's powerful Word was well deserved! What do you think?
