Our backyard wildlife sanctuary

Yesterday morning (Wednesday) provided us some delightful wildlife viewing.  The turkeys are messy, and not particularly welcome, but we nonetheless enjoy seeing the mamas and their many, many offspring sweetly clucking their way through the yard. And these large bucks show how healthy city fed deer can be!

Count the numbers!

Remaining what God created us to be

“My attitude toward sorrow and difficulty should not be to ask that they be prevented, but to ask that God protect me so that I may remain what He created me to be, in spite of all my fires of sorrow.”  Oswald Chambers

And for me personally, I need to remain "what God created me to be" when I get frustrated that what "I planned" does not happen.
