Thank you Lord for looking out for me earlier today. I was walking around doing yard work and walked right by this 2ft 7 inch Rattler. I still have no clue why he didn't strike me. I jumped to the side but he had all the time in the world to nail me. I'm sure glad my boy wasn't running around the yard and it was I that encountered him. He only struck the metal pole once.I think it was the humidity and heat. He was up against the house siding and couldn't get enough shade to cool down. Another Rattler added to the necklace. Thank you Lord.
