Slithering snake sneaks
Behind the white joyful mouse.
Hawk snatches the snake.
A surprise twist at the end. The mouse is rescued by the hawk. Unfortunately, nature is cruel and the snake was eaten by the hawk.
I don’t rejoice in this conflict because all the creatures need to eat in order to survive, and someone gets hurt in the end. Rather, I wait in anticipation for the new Heaven and Earth where God said there will no longer be any death or animosity.
I believe this also includes the animal kingdom. There will be true peace. No more suffering. Are you excited for that day? I know I am! Blessings.
