Don’t Overlook the Little Joys of Life

I recently spent a couple of days at the lake with my son and his family.  With the hustle and bustle of kids and parents getting up and getting ready for a big day in the water, I retreated to the back porch with my camera.  Early morning light shifted through the trees as branches swayed in the breeze.

I kept seeing movement among the leaves, but couldn’t quite spot the culprit.  Finally I spotted a squirrel.  It seemed like that little guy could be everywhere at once.  Then I realized there were three of them romping through the foliage, chasing each other, and showing off.  They were amazing little scamps, leaping from tree to tree, running up and down the trunks, and chasing each other across the lawn.  At times it seemed like they were playing peek-a-boo with me.

All of God’s creation is full of wonder.  I’m so glad I took the time to watch these little furry cuties for a few minutes before the sliding glass door opened and I was summoned in to breakfast.
