We had fun and learned much about turtles. Enjoy your study!
Sister Betty Jo, thanks for stopping by my site, I truly appreciate it especially since I’m so new to THIS style media! On to your post above; I thought BING was just putting pretty pictures on my desktop!! Who would have known!? My wife and I share a great big love for ALL of God’s creatures, we watch many of the cable channels that deal with nature, animals and such so your links were a complete joy!!
God bless so much, Sis (in Christ!)
I’m so happy you followed the turtle links, Pastor Roland. My kids and I had a wonderful study! Thank you for visiting again.
