This morning we were drinking our tea and looked out the window.
There she was. The sweetest, fuzziest, brown bunny. Of course her name became Flopsy. We watched a minute. Then the little kid in us wanted to go outside to see it. The adult in us said she will run away the minute we open the door.
But she stayed. Then big, smart, careful brother woke. "Let's go sit outside and watch her." Joy, joy, joy!!
Flopsy stayed, brother stayed. Sister got cold. Mommy watched to see what would happen with all three.
"No, if we move again she will run away. Don't move, just be still. Maybe I could set a trap and catch her. Then I could skin her and eat her meat and sell her hide. That will be the beginning of my fur enterprise out here in the backwoods. We'll never have to go to town again. I will clothe you all in fur and feed you rabbit meat. I heard it helps in weight loss. Mom will like that."
Then a fight broke out (no pics, please!!!!) . Words were spoken, tears were shed, the peace of the morning shattered into a million pieces, and we all had to get ready for church.
But I tell you, it was fun to watch, both for me and the kids. And what a way to begin..hmmm...a Sunday, watching a sweet animal the Lord of all creation made, that He sustains, and allowed us to see.
Enjoy your day and be sure to praise your Creator, the one who sustains you,
