God's Glorious Creation
God blessed them and said to them, "Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky and over every living creature that moves on the ground."
If you've followed Meditations of My Heart for any length of time, you know that the suburban, yet heavily forested, area in which we live provides not only for people, but for a wide variety of wildlife, coexisting peacefully with their human neighbors. Here is just a sampling from my husband, Danny's, photos.
And just when we think our backyard couldn't possibly get any wilder, look who shows up!
Turkeys! Danny can hardly believe his eyes! He used to spy turkeys years and years ago, before the apartments were built behind our house, but none since then. Where in the world, we wonder, did these two lovely specimens come from?
No matter from whence this mother and juvenile have originated, we are thrilled to have them roaming freely through our neck of the woods, partaking of the feast we leave on the ground for the birds and squirrels.
God's glorious creation never ceases to amaze and astound us. May we all resolve to be good stewards of the many blessings He has so graciously bestowed on us.
