We were gifted with passes to the Final Round of The Players Championship Golf Match. What a beautiful place to enjoy Mother’s Day!
Sitting by the 17th hole’s waterway we watched the ducks, osprey and what I think was an otter.
An osprey flew down, spotted its prey, dipped its talons’ into the water and grabbed a fish. Dragging his catch he tried mightily to get aloft, but to no avail.
After several unsuccessful attempts he had to change his plans. Empty ‘handed’ he flew up over the waterway.
Soon he was back and he plunged again…this time he had his dinner. The crowd erupted into applause.
As if he knew we had all been watching him, he circled the gallery three times , soaking in the ovation.
There’s an opportune time to do things, a right time for everything on the earth: Ecclesiastes 3:1MSG)
Don’t be discouraged if you are not successful the first, second++ attempts.
There is a time for you.
“Be strong. Take courage. Don’t be intimidated. Don’t give them a second thought because God, your God, is striding ahead of you. He’s right there with you. He won’t let you down; he won’t leave you.”
(Deuteronomy 31:6 MSG)
Don’t give up, my friend!
