The Moose and the Apple Tree

I went with my husband and children to help out a friend today. As we traveled along the road we noticed a huge moose in the front yard of someones house. He was eating the apples off of their tree! The owners of the apple tree were sitting at the opening of their front door, staring at the moose. Passerby's had pulled over to the side of the road, and started to take pictures of him. The moose didn't seem to take much notice of any of us, he was very involved with the apple tree.
My husband wondered how many apples he would eat before he wandered on to some other place, and I decided that he would probably eat all the apples he could reach before he would move on.

I thought it was fascinating how he could just saunter in and help himself to the neighbors apple tree and they didn't seem to mind at all.
We have had a few visits from a moose this past year too, we do not have any apples to offer, but we did stare at him. And, Fur Ball spent a long time barking at him making it very clear to him that he was trespassing on private property. But, the moose that came to visit our house was just like the moose with the apple tree, he didn't seem to care about what we thought or Fur Ball thought, he just did his own thing in his own way.
There's not really a point to my moose story. These were just the thoughts I had today concerning the moose I saw eating the apples off the neighbors tree. It was another little blessing, in the middle of my curve ball life. I needed to see the moose, the apple tree, and all the people staring.
Jesus, You create surprises along the way because sometimes the curve balls just keep on coming. Say That Again, today You sent a moose to make me laugh, and it was good!
