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…
After 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.)
…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)
So, 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….

i love box turtles
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!
I love these photos!
