A Whole New World

Hello! Please pardon my infrequent postings. I'm finding it harder to write when my stories now revolve around people who can actually use the web and read this blog! :P  I've started cross-training up on the Medical-Surgical unit in my hospital and it is a Whole New World, let me tell you! It's been interesting discovering the different mindsets between "the floor" and the emergency room. My grandma and cousin also came for a visit. Since it was a beautiful day here in sunny Nashville we took them to the zoo. Here are a few pics for your visual enjoyment...

I think flamingos look kind of fake, but I like 'em.
I believe I would enjoy riding a giraffe someday.
Anteaters are such strange animals! God certainly is creative.
This bird thought Caleb was the bomb dot com.
He looks like he's in his environment!
Look, Mr. Frodo - an oliphant!
Pretty birds. :)

And a thought to leave you with...

“To love at all is to be vulnerable. Love anything and your heart will be wrung and possibly broken. If you want to make sure of keeping it intact you must give it to no one, not even an animal. Wrap it carefully round with hobbies and little luxuries; avoid all entanglements. Lock it up safe in the casket or coffin of your selfishness. But in that casket, safe, dark, motionless, airless, it will change. It will not be broken; it will become unbreakable, impenetrable, irredeemable. To love is to be vulnerable.” - C.S. Lewis (from The Four Loves)

Beloved, let us love one another...I John 4:7
Love your enemies...Mt. 5:44
Walk in love...Eph 5:2

Are those the birds that left a "present" on the boys?
