Snail Patrol

Today I went out with some of the kids for a bit of a walk as it was great weather and others in the home were busy. We took a long walk around our rural settings and it was a good opportunity for these guys to just get out in the outdoors and look for little creatures and critters that are prevalent in spring. I found it quite nice too to be away from the ‘beehive’ for a bit and just walk the forest paths where there is no computer work, phone calls, chores, meetings, clean-ups and the mired of things that keep us so busy and rushed most of the day being a Family home and local NGO etc. Time can seem to stand still – at least until the kids excitedly holler “LADYBUG” or “SPIDER” – but that’s okay because just a few minutes of peace is all you really need to clear your head sometimes of the cares of our busy lives and then are ready to jump back in and run into the bushes to get a shot of the ‘cool’ bug or insect that they found and take in the moment with these little exploring minds. Guess that is why Jesus said we have to be more like little children, these little guys who have so much faith and trust and don’t worry about the work or the bills and just are full of life knowing they got a big guy watching out for them on their walk taking snapshots of their daily lives. How much more should we have peace having the ultimate ‘big guy’ looking out for us, and I’m sure He’s looking down and taking snapshots of our lives too –ha.

Those are my thoughts anyways, here are some pictures.
