When walking out to the garden, my mom almost stepped on this fellow:
Her reaction at first was, “SNAAAAAAAAKE,” but that was quickly followed by, “Oh never mind, it has legs.” 😂 She was quite relieved.
He was kind enough to let me get 20+ photos of him. Poor thing seemed to have lost its tail though. He seemed fine besides that. He was much faster than I expected. When he finally left, it was so fast that if I had blinked I would have missed it.
I’m glad that God brought him across my mom’s path so these photos could be taken! 🙂
This is week twelve of 100 Word Wednesday, and here is the photo and my response. 🙂 If you’d like to participate, just click the link! 😉
I fall asleep and find myself in a green field.
Sapphire sky above, horses walking around,
But could there be something concealed?
Is there something more to be found?
Among a herd of horses, I seek
One who has a single horn;
I know, my chances are bleak,
But I dream of finding a unicorn!
I’d saddle him and ride,
Laughing, giddy all the way.
Sure, go ahead, deride,
While we ride off to play!
Then I’ll awaken from that fantasy,
Wishing curtains didn’t close the scene,
Wanting the magic to follow me,
But it can’t cross the border between –
Dream and reality…
Granny Smith Apple, still on the tree,
I daydream of the pie it’ll make.
The filling will be sweet and juicy,
When I put it in the oven to bake!
I’m trying to imagine – the Lord of the universe and Creator of all things has heard me. Me. Little ol’ me. Wow! I can barely comprehend this. 💕 But I am eternally grateful. 💗
When I turn on the TV or radio, I see so much violence in the world. It is overwhelming and devastating, how much hate there is. People gossiping about people, backstabbing people, using their tongues as weapons. (Paul specifically spoke about this in Ephesians 4:29) In addition, there are so many people hurting one another – physically and mentally – and killing one another. It makes me so sad and sick to see it.
How many times have we been told to love one another? I know it was a lot. Here are a few:
John 15:12: This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you.
First John 3:23: And this is his commandment, That we should believe on the name of his Son Jesus Christ, and love one another, as he gave us commandment.
First John 4:7: Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God.
First John 4:11: Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought also to love one another.
The hate needs to stop!!!
Let us keep in mind these verses and the poem; love one another! ♥
