I took all these pictures on Saturday morning. After two days of drenching rain, the skies cleared. Rich and I went on a walk with the children and it was more exciting that usual because of the flooding of the stream….so over-full that water was up into the woods. It was magical with the sun pouring down.
The children saw so many little creatures on that day, two snakes, a mole, and a baby cardinal that was blown from it’s nest in the storms. David held it and then put it back with it’s parents. What a treat to see and wonder over God’s beautiful world.
“We have our all from the hand of God….if we have this thought as a golden thread running through all the comforts of every day; these are God’s gifts, every bit we eat, and every drop we drink is His mercy, every breath we draw, and every step we take is His mercy, this will keep us continually waiting upon Him….and will put a double sweetness into all our enjoyments.” Matthew Henry, The Secret of Communion with God
