The Boys

The boys ran into the house this summer, excited for me to come see what they found.  I just want you to know it was all three of the "boys".  I look into the face of my grandsons and then at the face of my beloved and I saw the same expression.  I love that man.  Anyway they took my hands and outside we went.  Their prize, a baby horny toad!  He was so cute.  Also just to let you know no horny toad was harmed during this episode, he was properly released to feed in the back yard.  
Pappaw, being the cool Pappaw that he is, lead the boys in a discovery of the wonderful world of horny toads.  Tyler started out a little scared but Caleb was all about it.  Here is the series of pictures I took that day and have been promising to post for a few weeks now. 

 Mom, hope you enjoy this.  By the way my brother and I use to play with these every summer, and they do spit blood out of their eye, huh Stanly.  Sorry to any horny toad lovers out there.  We didn't kill him, but we must have really p_ _, um made him mad. 

How many are your works, O LORD!
In wisdom you made them all;
the earth is full of your creatures.
Psalm 104:24

Creation is filled with stunning variety, revealing the rich creativity, goodness, and wisdom of our loving God.  As you observe your natural surroundings, thank God for his creativity.  Take a fresh look at people, seeing each one as God's unique creation, each with his or her own special talents, abilities, and gifts. (NIV Life Application)

I couldn't say it any better.
Praise you Father for your creation. Amen.
