Cheering Us On!

"Who are these wearing white robes?"
Revelation 7:13

November 1 and November 2
are days here in the Philippines
when we visit our loved ones 
who have gone ahead.

For the long weekend, 
my family and I went to the beach.
There was no Wifi 
and I was not able to post!

My favorite part about our beach trip
to the Peninsula de Punta Fuego
was the little turtles that 
the conservationists let go into the sea.

We were cheering on 115 little pawikans
(filipino for marine turtles),
and I was reminded of how
the saints cheer us on.

When a little turtle fell into a sand dimple,
when he turned over, the crowd would groan.
When he would get up,
we would cheer.

We would shout, "You can do it!"
"Almost there!"
I can imagine the saints doing the same thing 
for us here on earth!!!!

Every week I choose one wonderful
visitor who leaves a comment
to receive an ATC from me.

I know how much time and effort
it takes to leave a comment!
and I appreciate that soooo much!

This week Random Generator
chose #21, 
Carol of Creative Harbor.
She is a prolific painter and poet.
