The squirrel

Today as I sat out in my spot a squirrel ran up and down the surrounding trees, barking and chattering up a storm as it glared down upon my intrusion into its space. Or was it just simply having fun and like myself delighting in the beautiful day? I don't know, but the squirrel put on quite a show.

As I sat observing, I asked Jesus what was going on?

After a few more minutes of watching the squirrel, I sensed the Lord saying, "there is no message...the squirrel is just being a squirrel...he's come to worship with us today...let's just enjoy the squirrel together...that's all."

There doesn't have to be a lesson in everything. Some things just are. See it. Hear it. Enjoy it. Thank God for it. No need to complicate, or philosophize. Just accept the beauty of creation for what it is.

Today a squirrel was just doing his thing on a beautiful sunny morning. God is good. Need more be said?

"There doesn't have to be a lesson in everything." Amen brother. Sometimes I forget this. Thanks.

Amen. There is plenty of beauty around us if we will only open our eyes and see all that God has placed in front of us.

The lesson is that there is no lesson? Is that not.... a lesson?

Just having fun.
Are you back down South again yet?

Yep, still here...long story. I wonder what the lesson is in our still being here? :)
