God’s Incredible Creation
Today is Patson’s 40th birthday and what a day God blessed him with! We started our day by meeting our driver Steve who took us through immigration so we could take a boat across the Zambezi river to the country of Botswana. We were then transported by our guide, Moses, to the Chobe National Park. God delighted us with His creation. A river boat guided us down the river where we could watch crocodiles, hippos, and elephants swimming and playing. After lunch we boarded an open air safari truck and drove through the Bush. Impala, baboons, giraffes, and many elephants passed in front of us, much to our delight. However, the most incredible experience was when our driver found 3 lions drinking from the river and then walking thru the bushes. This is very rare to find lions in the afternoon. All at once the lions were hunting prey. It’s almost impossible to describe the tension as we watched the natural process and the hunting skills of the lead lion who was communicating with her tail to the other two. They stopped immediately and one started to circle around behind the Impala. The hunt was terminated as a bird, of all things, put out a distress cry and the impala bolted to safety. It was breathtaking!!
And God said, “Let the land produce living creatures according to their kinds: the livestock, the creatures that move along the ground, and the wild animals, each according to its kind.” And it was so. God made the wild animals according to their kinds, the livestock according to their kinds, and all the creatures that move along the ground according to their kinds. And God saw that it was good.
To God be the Glory.
