The heron snatched the lizard up
As quietly it slept
When to its rescue out the door
My wife in fury swept
"No!Not this one!"
She yelled and shook
Her fist with flashing eyes
So in dismay he turned to fly
And dropped his newfound prize
Then I recalled how I was lost
Moving from town to town
When all around me danger crept
Looking to hunt me down
But a voice so quiet yet so deep
Echoed in my shadowlands
"No! Not this One!"
I heard Christ say
Then He took my trembling hands!

This is beautiful!
I praise God for His salvation too! Thank you for sharing this. I enjoyed it. Is the lizard in the picture the one saved?
No but my wife did take this photo and it was the same type of lizard. Our back yard and sun room are their favorite hangouts.
Nice! What kind of lizard is it? We don’t have anything like that here, as far as I’m aware.
That is an Anole. It is very common here in the Tampa bay area. We also have Geckos and Chameleons but they are more rare.
Thank you! It’s fun to learn about other areas . I didn’t know Geckos or Chameleons lived there, but I’ve never thought to look it up either! 🙂
