“But ask the animals, and they will teach you, or the birds of the air, and they will tell you; or speak to the earth, and it will teach you, or let the fish of the sea inform you. Which of all these does not know that the hand of the Lord has done this? In his hand is the life of every creature and the breath of all mankind.”
That is Ruby the squirrel in my Mom’s backyard in Illinois. My Mom emailed me about her this morning. Look at how peaceful she is in God’s loving hands. She knows the Lord takes care of her and just by watching that little squirrel, we can see a testimony of God’s love!
Here is my Mom’s email:
“The other day, after doing a little yard work, I decided to get some ice tea and go sit in the swing. I was swinging when a young squirrel approached me and kept getting closer, too close for my comfort, so I moved to the lawn chair. It climbed up to a tree branch and immediately chattered at me, then walked over to the beam of the swing to lay down. It laid there for over a half hour and even fell asleep! It did the same thing later that day and your Dad saw her do it too Yesterday it walked to me again! Cute!”
That little squirrel sure let my Mom know she wanted to take a nap on her swing! Awww, little Ruby–she’s good! She knows who takes care of her and she is at rest. Let that be a testimony of God’s love and provision for all of us! As the Word of God says, “But ask the animals, and they will teach you.”
Grace and peace to you all!
