Saturday midday the kids came barging through the front door screaming, "A turtle, a turtle. It's digging a hole in the yard!" Chris went out to see what all the commotion was. Sure enough there was a turtle in the yard across the street digging a hole. She used her back feet to dig down deep and pull out hand fulls of dirt. About an hour or so went by and the kids came running again, "she's laying eggs, she's laying eggs!" I grabbed my camera and ran along side them to where the turtle was. How often does one get to see a turtle laying eggs I ask you? I was amazed at what I saw. Momma turtle had dug a hole about six inches deep. The circumference of the hole wasn't too big or too small for her eggs to fall down into. It was just right. She began laying her eggs. One at a time a miracle was performed right before our eyes. After she laid the eggs, she would gently push them into the hole. When she was done laying her eggs she began grabbing hand fulls of dirt to cover her babies up and then she took off back down to the pond. Chris and I talked later about how precise she was and how only Elohim, Creator God, could have spoken such a wonder into being. Friends, our God is great and greatly to be praised!
