a visitor at woods chapel

new visitor at church
After the recent rains at church, we had a very scary visitor.  This snapping turtle which was about 18 inches long....just the shell was 18 inches, was found in our parking lot.  Maybe he was trying to get in to pray.

Some of our staff were a little worried that he might get hit by a car and squished.  So, they gingerly approached him and hauled him back down to the pond.  I am sure that he is happily eating fish again.

Snapping turtles can really take a chunk out of you if they get a hold of your hand or finger.  I know our staff was pretty nervous about this visitor to our church, but they did not let their fear get in the way of their hearts.  There is a lesson for us all.  Don't let your fear get in the way of your heart.

It's a beautiful day in God's world, be sure to see the good.
