For you have been my refuge, a strong tower. I long to take refuge in the shelter of your wings. Psalm 61:2-4. The name of the Lord is a strong tower; the righteous run to it and are safe. Proverbs 18:10

Overly Stretched and Stressed

The young owl was venturing out on his own, enjoying the sunshine and soft breeze. He sat stock still in the marked off spot for an endangered species.

I couldn’t quite get the photo I was after.  Slowly I tip toed closer, full lens camera magnify-cation on. His small head swiveled around to check out possible approaching danger.

Just as I zoomed in he disappeared from view. I was too close for comfort, and that bird was scared and stressed.

Leaning in, I cautiously put my face near the 6 inch poly pipe only to see – not the baby ground owl, but his not-at-all happy mother. Her head was all fluffed up nearly filling the space, totally protecting her young one somewhere behind her. She looked intimidating enough that I dared not step any closer.

I snapped a picture of the Mom ‘guard’; and thought how this scenario was a reminder that when I’m feeling overly stretched and stressed, it’s good to remember where to go.  I can run to our strong tower, our father God. He is waiting, arms stretched out wide, to shield and protect us. That’s good news.
