Today is Saturday. Today, Paul and I went exploring. There is an enormous state park about an hour from where we are staying.
We headed into the forest and discovered a lovely marsh teeming with frogs, blue dragonflies and turtles sunning on a rock.
Paul took a picture of the half dozen turtles. I watched as they lazed on a large rock peeking above the water and I grinned. Now they know how to navigate life.
Turtles come out of the water to get some air and perspective. They cling to their rock of faith and move to the light and bask in it. They take it slow and deliberately. Have you ever seen a stressed out turtle?
Today, after yesterday’s tears, I found a bit of solace and peace in the woods with turtles..😁
Tonight, I talked with Matt and told him to keep the faith. He sounded better and when he sounds good, then I feel like one of those turtles basking in the sunshine.
God bless you richly friends. Slow down and count even your smallest blessings.
