I think God wanted to show me He's still thinking about me, that I'm not forgotten. That He loves me! Here's the proof...
I figured, if I'm going to be up this early, I might as well make some coffee and feed the birds. So, I walk out the one of the feeders in the back of my yard and see these guys watching.
I was absolutely amazed to see four chipmunks sitting on one tree stump sunning themselves like that. Normally, when two or more are gathered (chipmunks that is), there is chaos.... It's every man for himself!
I wanted to get closer for a better shot, but as soon I started moving in, they all scattered down the tree stump. This guy poked his head up a couple of times, but disappeared as soon as he heard the shutter.
I waited a little bit and they didn't return. So, I got up and walked around to the front yard to see what I could find. There was a chipmunk sitting on the rock next to the small pond. While taking pictures of him, I noticed this guy in the background. Click the images to see them larger.
This is God's way of reminding us to smile!
This is the day which the LORD has made; Let us rejoice and be glad in it. Psalm 118:24
