2 Corinthians 4:17 “For our present troubles are small and won’t last very long. Yet they produce for us a glory that vastly outweighs them and will last forever!” NLT
I guess that my little anole that visits me every so often was a she instead of a he. There are a multitude of little anole’s all over the backyard. As I sat with my Abba in the quiet of my backyard, a tiny version of her mother came to sit on my Bible. She was very determined to find out just what or who I was. She ran all over my books, my basket, and ultimately me! I tried to keep her out of my hair but she was persistent. I don’t have pictures of her climbing all over my shirt and into my hair but trust me when I say it took a lot of deep breathing to keep from flinging her across the yard. Finally I carried her over to the ivy that grows around the pond so that she wouldn’t be a tasty treat for the blue jays that live in the tree beside my chair. I have seen her running up and down the pipes around the pond, playing hide and seek with her brothers and sisters. She will still run up my hand when I come near. I don’t know why she trusts me so but I know that she makes me smile and that’s all that matters most days.
