Turtles of Sleepy Hollow Lake - 02 - Last on the Log: A Closer View

Turtles of Sleepy Hollow Lake - 02
(Turtles of Sleepy Hollow Lake - 02) Every one of God's creatures has a right to live his or her life as the Lord intended.  Look closely at the marvelous detail that went into creating this living soul, and note the subtle differences in the appearance of the others that were upon this log.  Not only did God create this being, but He also created each one as an individual, just as we were created.  Our true thanksgiving is in our love and protection of all that God has made.

My husband and I rescued one from our neighbor who only gave the little guy and inch of water, NO basking area, and no light. "Pete" is now very happy in his HUGE tank... his growth was stunted because of his horrible living conditions, so returning him to the wild will probably not ever happen.. But, I took him out of his tank so he could view the pictures of his relatives. I think I saw a faint glimmer in his eyes. The pictures bring tears to my eyes.. so gorgeous and peaceful. The way it should be! :)

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.
