I missed seeing him several weeks ago when his visits stopped. He was an interesting subject to watch as I prepared the morning grain for the horses. I assumed he was gone, probably killed by a larger animal. Perhaps it was one of my barn cats who I know hunt when I 'm not watching.
This morning as the sun rays radiantly showed their beams through the distant pine forest and the ground mist, the little fellow was back. There he was in almost the identical place as before. Once again, he was carefree and content. The little creature obviously opts for enjoying life while he has it instead of cowering with fear.
And it made me think about how in so many ways all of these animals are so much stronger than we members of mankind. They go about their routines with some caution, but the will to live and do what they must always takes center stage. Meanwhile, so many of us are frozen by worry and fear, so much so that we often miss the true adventure and beauty that is found in daily life. How sad that is.
I hope each of you on this Sunday thanks Your Maker for the gift of life and commits to living a good life, cautious yet never afraid, of those things for which we have no control. Life is meant to be lived and the Father is to be praised. If you have Him in your corner, and you truly believe, there is nothing to be afraid of.
Enjoy the rest of your Sabbath Day. God bless everyone and God bless America and the beauty that is the most wonderful nation on earth. Let's strive to keep her God fearing and free.
