Team Up Thursday: Cold

I know, I know...I am very late with this post...but better late than never.  I chose the word "cold" for this weeks challenge as we have had an unusually cold winter this year.
This picture was taken last winter at a guest house just outside Bloemfontein.  It was early morning and this bubbling little stream turned the overhanging grass into icicles...an indication of how cold it got during the night.
My team member Stefanie chose this picture taken during their cruise in New Zealand...she says:


CJ and I were on deck and saw this little fellow be blown aboard. 
It was raining and the wind was incredibly strong. 
He waddled along, and at each railing support he looked out over the edge and decided it was too far and trudged on to the next support post. 
We must have been easily 5 stories up.
Suddenly he clambered to the edge and just jumped off. 
CJ and I rushed to the deck railing and were delighted to see him swoop and fly.
God is such an awesome Creator.
This little bird taught me that sometimes you just have to go for it.
