Today, our parents called us - just to catch up on what we're doing, how we are, tell us about how they are, etc. A couple hours after talking with them, the phone rang again and it was them! Dad was on the other end of the phone that I held up to my ear.
"Raquel?" he said.
"Yes, Daddy, it's me."
It was quiet on the other end for a second, and then, "I got to see one!"
I didn't have to ask what exactly he had got to see because I knew that the only thing that he hoped to see would be his sea turtle. :) It's been a life-long dream of his to see "his" turtle and today, God granted him the chance, not only to see it, but to feel it and take pictures of it.
Aren't they beautiful animals?
Truly a work of a marvelous, loving Creator!!
This could very well have been my Daddy! :)
Thank you to all who prayed that he would be able to see one! He was so blessed today! (In case some of you don't know where he is at the moment, check out my post on their anniversary trip here.)
