Safe

Thursday, September 30, 2010

  A tiny duckling
alone,
scared,
trying for all it's worth to warn it's mother that it's left the safety of the reeds 



 Swimming hard, yet loosing the battle on it's own... the slight breeze too strong for one so small..




Mother Duck, alerted to her young ones troubles bravely surfaces to save her baby


Finally she arrives - her baby relieved, stops it's chirping & grabs onto mother duck knowing that here, at last,  she is safe...

Safe for another day.... the mother duck takes baby back to the reeds!


Psalm 4:8 (New International Version)



  I will lie down and sleep in peace, 
       for you alone, O LORD, 
       make me dwell in safety.



I am forever in awe of God's creation!

Have a beautiful day

Love that. My kids always yell at me because when I read the Mother Duck story I cry really loudly when all the ducklings are gone. :)

Love God's hand in how He brings us back to His safety!

Oooohhhh How sweet - they are absolutely gorgeous photos!!! It must be the season for baby duckies - one day last week I was travelling home along Kin....Road, and had to stop completely as a Mummy & Daddy duck and their 6 (six) offspring crossed the road (I'm assuming they were mum and dad!!!) They were soooo.... cute! Anyway, I'm glad your baby duck found his/her mummy!!
Lots of love to all - 7 sleeps to go!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Mumxxxxxxxxxx

Thank you for leaving a comment on my blog. I am so in awe of the Lord that He would make it so our family could work together. Amazes me and I tell people just how He did that for us.

Have a nice week Renata!

Hugs, Linda

This is beautiful, Renata. How precious when we see God caring so much for His 'little sparrows'. What a comfort for us, for whom His care is overwhelming. Why do we worry, when He has all things in His care?
Love, Anne x
