Quote from: Harlow2 on October 20, 2022, 04:22:12 PMOut on a walk with a friend to an abandoned cranberry bog earlier this week I realized that where the trail ended I was standing on a beaver's house under construction. The builders had been scraping mud out of the bog and plastering the sides of the house; the mud was still wet. My friend lives closer to the bog than I do and has promised updates.

It had gotten in at some point, died, and dried out. She would never have known it was there if the cat hadn't turned it into a toy.

Work? While I do have various things to get done today, those few minutes in the presence of the Creator, filling up on the gladness of his presence and being reminded of just who he is, may have been the most productive few minutes all day.
