Quirky Turkeys!

A gang of  leaf shufflers caught my eye through the window this morning as I was heading for the kitchen to grab some grub. 

Which is what this “gang” of turkeys was doing, only they were looking for real grubs (and worms and tiny insects)

 As they kicked up the leaves, they filled the woods with their shuffling sounds.  shuffle, shuffle, shuffle.

Now, this “posse” knew (another name for a gang of turkeys) that to find the best food they’d have to dig for it.  The good stuff doesn’t just hang out on the surface.

We could learn a lesson from the turkey (Melegris Gallopavo).  To be properly fed, we need to dig.

How often do we try to fill up on surface stuff?  All we  end up with is an empty soul and skinny faith!

Sometimes we have to go deep, make some shuffling sounds flippin’ through the Bible for wisdom. 

Beth Moore

Beth Moore (Bible Teacher Excellentus) observed that one of her favorite sounds in church is flipping Bible pages.

She said it reminds her of what angels’ wings must sound like. 🙂

Well, speaking of flipping Bible pages, there’s another lesson we can learn from the turkey, and that is to hang with a posse. 

It’s not only funner to dig through the Bible with friends, sometimes it’s more effective.  Kicking through the leaves with a gang exposes worms for more than one turkey.  We can feed off each other’s finds.

So join a study group or, if you’d rather, an online group, and start digging deep.  Here’s one of Beth Moore’s online studies you might like:

“Oh the depths of the riches of both the wisdom and knowledge of God.  How unsearchable are his judgements and unfathomable His ways.”  Romans 11:33

Are YOU believing God?  He could use another quirky turkey in His posse. Click on the pic below to learn how to join!

  1. awe, aunti! i love the pictures an’ how you took ’em: beauteous! what a good point too about diggin’ below the surface. God knows I needed to hear it; thanks!

    • And God knows how much I love you, niece! We all need reminding on a daily basis of what’s good and true and right. We’re all in this together, Aunt Gloris.

  2. I couldn’t agree more. On both points, but especially the posse part. I have the blessing of walking life with good friends who challenge me, encourage me, and pray for me. And yes, as we look into God’s truths, we help one another unearth things we could never have found alone.

    Blessings to you and your family. And, keep digging.
