To Be a Gosling. . .

My camera was not on zoom.

He knew I was right there, sitting next to him and watching him,

but yet he laid down and went to sleep. Because his mother was standing close to him, protecting him, as evidenced by her shadow.

He knew he was perfectly safe. He rested in complete trust, despite the confusing things going on around him.

I want to be more like that gosling.

He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.
– Psalm 91:1
