Sun Rays, Turtle Crossings and Following the Flow


OK, it’s story time.

This morning I decided to head to a local country restaurant for breakfast. While on the way I was taking in the beauty of the natural clouds (rare) and the sun rays coming through them. Sun rays are of interest lately for reasons I wont go into here but I was really digging what I was seeing. As I kept an eye out for a place to pull over and get a good shot, I got a little frustrated a couple times when someone was right behind me and I could not pull over at the spots I wanted to.

Then I got that sense that there was more to this excursion than me getting a quick photo. I continued down the road yielding in my spirit to the Fathers lead, open to anything that may present itself.

A couple minutes later I come to an open field that would allow for a good shot. I travel a little further to turn around and head back to the spot and capture the moment. On the way to my photo spot I spot a turtle just starting across the road. It is after all, turtle crossing season here in West Kentucky. So I pass the little critter up, get my shot and turn around again to go help him across the road so he doesn’t end up part of the road.


As I am heading that way, scanning the side of the road I see no turtle. I pass a slow moving car and the driver waves at me. I turn around again and the guy is pulling over and waves me over. I pull up and he says, “I got im”. I paused looking at him like he just read my mail.

I say,

“The turtle?”

“Yeah, I got im and set im off the road.”

“How’d you know what I was up to?”

“I could tell. I stop for em all the time.”


“Yeah, me too!”

I got out and we hit it off like old friends. I gave him a CD  and we talked about music, love for animals and how crows are smarter than some people we know.

So I guess the message is, remember to yield to the flow… because you never know…..

You may get the opportunity to save a critter or meet another kindred soul.


Grace & Peace,

  1. Haha….loved it! Jamie Anderson is an old friend of mine who has sent me your musings on several occasions (I am also a musician):-) I have a wordpress account called Forging the Flow – about just that – the stories, the miracles, the ‘coincidences’ which are divine entering in for the moment to remind us to be aware…. So, of course, I loved your turtle story. Fun stuff:-)
