    The moment you feel really down,

    wondering if there's a way out of this mess and hoping for some sign from someone, and at that moment a morning dove flies down and lands within a foot from you and just chills for a bit before taking of again. Thanks God! You are amazing

    Baby sea turtles are the bravest animals alive,

    they have to struggle and fight to get to the sea before the sun baked there tiny unprotected body, they have to survive vicious birds to get to the ocean, once they make it in the ocean they have to fend for themselves to reach maturity. We humans are a lazy, spoiled species

    God Shows Me He's Real By Showing Me His Creation.

    In those days where I'm dealing with spiritual doubt I like to immerse myself in nature. Man can't make this stuff that is surrounding us... Only something (or someone) so perfect and powerful could make this all happen.
