Look Ma!

" Look Ma, no hands!"

This little turtle is precariously teetering on the edge with an alligator swimming by. (See and enlarge picture in the below post.) It seems he's saying, "no body parts touching the water, I'm in no danger," all the while his Momma turtle yells at him to get his little hard-shell ashore.

"Ignore the Word and suffer; honor God's commands and grow rich." Proverbs 13:13

How many times do I tempt danger, thinking I can get out of anything that comes my way, when I know good and well God is telling me something different?

I want my hard-headed-shell to be ashore with God's word.

**Loved, loved the comments on my last post! They were all daaarling and funny, too!!

(I know this turtle wasn't in danger at Busch Gardens, but sure fit the story well, didn't it?)

This post reminds me that my father used to call me "hard headed".

I sure do hope my Father God doesn't call me that too!

Okay, such a funny shot!

And a bit scary b/c I can be this way too. Thanks for causing me to think about it.

Wendy, my hubbie and I both laughed when we saw this little turtle.

Parsley, Kathryn and Alicia, thanks so much. Love to give you smiles.

Oh, dear. Do I have to tell you how many times I turtle the truth? God is so patient.

Karen, One of your better ones. I love them all, but this is a step above. Keep writing my dear. Love to you Clella

Jeanette, that's great, "turtle the truth!"

Clella, you are such a sweetie, thanks for your encouraging words.
