A snapping turtle, one of God's wonderful creatures, was discovered last weekend, after a big rainstorm, coming dangerously close to my driveway. So armed with gloves and my camera, I went out to greet it before it could go any further. I have this fear of backing over any of God's creatures so I try to keep them away from my car when I can. There is a pond at my neighbor's house and I'm sure this snapping turtle was displaced from there because of the storm. I tried relocating it, but it ended up biting me through my gloves! My son decided a shovel might be a safer way to relocate this creature and safely placed it back into the water, his home, and we were all happy for it. This snapping turtle is a beautiful fingerprint of God, found in nature (although you can't pet it!) and a good reminder that we can all use a helping hand sometimes to get us back on our own path.
