Sometimes on our way through to another meeting, we are able to meet up and/or stay with friends. These are always wonderful times of laughter and fellowship. Since we were in South Florida, it was a long way down and back. We were fortunate enough to have friends along the way with whom we could stay for a few days.
We parked our trailer at the Ogle’s house near Lakeland for a few days last week, and were awed by the beauty of their property. This was the view from our trailer door. The Spanish moss draped all over the oak trees has such a picturesque look.
They also had quite a bit of wildlife around the farm. Since they have a pond in the back yard, they frequently see alligators! Thankfully, the pond was down quite a bit and the gators had gone elsewhere for the time being. Whew!
We saw some beautiful sandhill cranes that were walking around in the yard. You could get pretty close to them, and the boys discovered that if you chase them, they will run until they decide you are getting too close, and then they will take flight. They apparently are quite used to people, and they have a preference for cat food! :)
All in all, we had a wonderful visit, and we had many interesting experiences. We are so thankful for the friends the Lord has given us.
