Turtles of Sleepy Hollow Lake - 01a - A Basking Painted Turtle

Turtles of Sleepy Hollow Lake - 01a
(Turtles of Sleepy Hollow Lake - 01a) As our canoe drifted closer to the basking painted turtles, they became a little nervous, and one by one they slid back into the water.  The first to go was this turtle, even though his or her eyes appeared to be closed.  Isaiah tells us that one day the animals will no longer have this rightful fear of us, for we will no longer hurt or destroy one another or the environment (11:6-9).  May that day come soon!

Lamb-Right Lamb-Left Presented here are just a few of the countless components of God's creation.  Just as we cannot have human and animal life without water and plants, neither can we have lasting peace without love and compassion.  It is our hope and prayer that this series will motivate people to live and act in a cruelty-free manner; that we would no longer hurt or destroy each other, the animals or our environment.
