As human beings we know it’s good to have company, it’s good to have a mate or a friend, or just someone who we can interact with at times. It’s also the same in nature. If you observe them long enough you will see the animals as they interact with one another. You will see the lengths they will go to protect their young. You will also see them sharing and showing kindness to one another.
The above picture is of two Wood Ducks. The one that is brown and have mutated tones is the female, and the one with the brighter colors is the male.
As I stood watching Wood ducks before, the female seemed to be more inquisitive. She was the one out front darting in and out of the cat tails while the male stayed close behind. If any other males came near to the female, there was sure to be some sparring going on.
We too as we go about our daily duties, whether we are with a mate, or with a friend, we have Someone who is also constantly watching over us everywhere we go. He is a Friend that we can always count on, and He will stay closer to us that any mate ever will.
He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High Shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress; My God, in Him I will trust.” Surely He shall deliver you from the snare of the fowler And from the perilous pestilence. …Psalm 91:1-3
……But there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother. Proverbs 18:24
