Don't let the difficulties of the present moments overshadow the reality of God's promises. God's promises still stand. And God's promises are stronger than our failures.

The Geese



My husband says he has the wild geese on the lake trained to come when he goes out to the sea wall to feed them.

But what really happens is the geese swim up to the sea wall and honk. He hears them, gets the bread, and goes out to feed them.

Who trained who?

Sounds a bit like my MILs interpretation of the feeding of a Magpie!

Molly said...

Shhh! Let him have his little fantasy!

Janera said...

That surely gave me a little grin. Cool pic, too. I think I'll play with it in PhotoShop and see what I can do for you.

um, what's a sea wall? I don't think we have those here in West Texas. If it has something to do with water, I KNOW we don't.

That is absolutely priceless! :-) I envy you that lake. Those geese could probably train me too.

Beautiful lake picture. Yes, 'boys' sometimes interpret things in their own little ways. Either way, he's wonderful.
Blessings,

I'm not getting in the middle of that argument!

Shhh....speaking in a whisper...I think you've got a point here.

Sounds fishy to me...

This post makes me smile. I think that you are right but don't tell your dear hubby...he is so proud of himself and I wouldn't want to bust his bubble.

Have a great week. Hugs, Lura

This post made me smile. I love the shot too. :) Buddy and I love to go the river near by for a walk and to feed the ducks.

Kind of like when my cat rattles her food dish and I stop whatever I am doing and go and give her some food.

Veggie Mom said...

Those geese sure did a good job, didn't they? Will they be able to tell him when they want something other than bread on the menu?
