He does all things well.

July 12, 2014 | My Jottings

I’m not sure why I love pictures and videos of animal parents and their babies, but I do. There’s something about seeing a first-time animal mama nurture her little one in ways no one but God could have taught her. You can call it instinct and it is, but God is the one who thought up instinct and puts it inside those animal moms and dads.


You may have already seen these pictures, but if you haven’t I hope you enjoy them today. Please click here.

I was in a sinking mood a couple of hours ago and happened to peruse this site, and my eyes filled with tears of wonder and I whispered out loud, “Oh Lord, You do all things well!” I just sat for a while thinking about Him and how beautiful His creation and ways are, and how good He is, no matter what others and our circumstances may otherwise proclaim.

What was your favorite photograph? (I especially loved all the bears and the little baby fox….)

Seeing the delightful pictures of these incredible animals helped me to trust the Lord a little more fully today. I hope you are trusting Him too….

    Love, love, love these precious photos, Julie….thank you for posting them today! I have not seen them before. I marvel with you at the wonder and beauty of God’s creations!
    You made my day! 🙂
    I’ll post a couple pictures of our pup Hank in an email to you soon… They are not as profound as these you shared, but perhaps they’ll bring another smile to your day!
    Love you! God bless you with hope and peace my friend…

    I knew these would be your kind of pictures, Shari. 🙂 I look forward to seeing the pictures of Hank… xoxo

    Such beautiful photographs Julie. I’ve had a lovely time exclaiming over them. The picture of the mummy otter cuddling her baby is my favourite. I also literally laughed out loud at the picture of the multi-legged bird!
    Shari, what sort of puppy have you got? Yesterday I emailed a couple of photos of our Bichon Frise puppy to Julie. We’re picking up Archie next month when he will be about eleven weeks old. It seems that Edith and Millie will have blogging pals by proxy! 🙂
    (Julie, I hope to get a post to you by the end of the week.)

    I’m so glad you liked the photos too, Kay. Shari has the cutest dog–I’ll ask her if I can share the photos she sent. May I share one of Archie too? I’m so glad to know you are working on my request! 🙂 xoxo
