So, I was returning a walk this evening when I saw this duck by the side of the main driveway into my neighborhood. She had two tiny ducklings with her, and I was wondering what they were doing on this side of the driveway (since the lake is on the other side). Anyway, I walked past them and then turned back to watch what they were doing out of curiosity.
She was trying to cross the driveway, this driveway in the picture, but here was the problem, she had hurt her right foot. So she was limping quite badly. Because she was limping, she was crossing the driveway very slowly and, of course, the ducklings were only going as fast as she was. I was concerned a car could come careening into the driveway and crush them, so I stood there to make sure that didn't happen.
Y'all, NO CAR CAME!
Here's the kicker: as soon as this duck hopped onto the median with her two ducklings, like 4 cars came at the same time trying to enter the neighborhood. I am not even joking.
Then the duck crossed the other lane and the same thing happened. No car came!
And it was like the Holy Spirit gave me a very real, very physical example of how God takes care of His own.
If God could hold the world, hold time, so that these birds were not crushed, He's got you and me.
