Last week i looked out the window to see this turtle hanging out on the edge of one of the deck steps in our back yard…

TURLE TURTLEAfter dashing out to snap a few pics, i could not figure out how this turtle made it onto this step since there’s a good 6 inches both ways (up & down.)

TURTLE on step…but, somehow, voila! – this turtle landed there…

It reminded me of something my Papa has said, “Anytime you see a turtle on a fencepost, you know two things about that turtle: 1) somebody had to put him there, because (2) turtles can’t climb a fencepost.”

Turtles on a fence post applied faith-wise?

“…You are the light of the world.  A city set on a hill cannot be hid.  Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it gives light to all in the house.”   (Matthew 5:14-15)

TURTLE with St FrancisSo, hmmmn, in one sense, we are all turtles wherever we are placed..

Caught by that thought, this turtle must don her chef hat to finish supper!

grace, peace & Turtles (on  a Fencepost)

   Virginia :  )

p.s. what happened to our turtle?  After not moving (at the edge) for what seemed like eons (!) this turtle had a wee bit of help moving to the grassy ground below….

    We have lots of turtles here in the Low Country of SC–yesterday traffic was stopped as a security cop used a broom to guide one across the road. Like the turtle on a fence post analogy–good thought!
