GOOD MORNIN'! We are getting a much needed downpour that does not bother any of our wildlife!  An Egret was fishing along the bank on the other side of the lake and a big ol' turtle was following quite fast a yard or so behind him!  Such fun to watch!

Turtle was still following, maybe he is hoping for a morsel?
The swans are so graceful even in the pouring rain and they flatten all of their feathers and pack them together tight repelling the most amount of water.

The Good Lord Gave Us Rain

The Good Lord gave us rain
to quench the thirsty earth.
And a bit of rolling thunder
Just to remind us of His worth.

And I always enjoy the raindrops
'Cause they make the sun so sweet!
Raindrops are splashing on the little pond
But all the critters are hanging round.

'Cause God gave turtles a hard shell
And Swans and Egret's feathers,
That serve them well
As the rain runs off their lovely backs.
Thank you for stopping by to see me today, you are a blessing in every way!  Now pop over to TWO HAPPY Blog to see what's cooking in my pot today!

Hope you are both doing well ... prayers still lifting.

How lovely it must be to see swans gliding by on the water...they are such magnificent and graceful creatures. It's been a long time I saw a swan life and in person - not since California 5 years ago!

All the best to you and your hubby!

With love,
Doris and Gizzy :-)
