what a lovely present you gave to us on your way to the dentist!

thank God for zoos! Asian elephants have been hunted almost to extinction....and they are among the loveliest and smartest animals alive. Same with African elephants.

thank you for this wonderful post......all of it! I am so so grateful!

Oh my!! how so precious! God knows how to give us beautiful things to enjoy. It's too bad we do such a lousy job of caring for His creatures.
