|This "itchy" fellow hangs out in our neighborhood, and can often be seen nibbling|
on our neighbors' flowers!
Every encounter is a chance to show the littles something new about God's marvelous creation:
"See the terrapin's extra eyelid? Watch when his head pokes out of the water!"
"See that cardinal? Listen to his song!"
"See the pollen on the bee's leg? Now she will taken some pollen to the next flower she visits!"
Eyes wide open, ears attuned, feet eager to explore -- every discovery another reminder of the blessings that flow down from heaven, as the rain and sunlight bring life to the dormant ground.
Ask the beasts, and they will teach you;
the birds of the heavens, and they will tell you;
Or the bushes of the earth, and they will teach you;
and the fish of the sea will declare to you.
Who among all these does not know
that the hand of the Lord has done this?
In His hand is the life of every living thing
and the breath of all mankind.
