The LORD does not look at the things people
look at. People look at the outward appearance,
but the LORD looks at the heart.
(1 Samuel 16:7b NIV)
My friend and I took a walk down the road through Lincoln, in search of some garden statues of a rooster and hen she wanted to show me.
There were many pretty flowers along the way.
It was such a beautiful day, we decided to keep on walking after we found them, and then, suddenly and unexpectedly, a serendipitous sighting.
What looked like a neglected yard taken over by weeds turned out to be so much more. Partially hidden by the tall grass were several bizarre looking sculptures.
This one intrigued me the most, because of the sadness in its eyes. I wonder if there is a story behind it.
We were about to turn back, when we heard what sounded like a very loud cat's miaow that was too loud to be coming from a cat, so we followed the sound.
It took a while to figure out where it was coming from, but we finally found the source--a pen of peacocks. Another serendipitous moment.
