For the Lenten Photo Invitation
If you look closely, there are three whales in this picture-a mama whale, a baby whale, and in the background, their escort.
An escort whale is an example of faithfulness. The male escort is not the daddy, but he escorts the mama and baby from here (Maui) to the Gulf of Alaska. He is truly faithful.
While we were there, the mama and baby frolicked away while the escort stood guard for well over an hour. At one point, while mama and baby were playing, the escort dove underneath the pontoon boat and sang. The water and the canvas of the boat combined to communicate the song to our ears beautifully. At the end, all three came together, headed towards our pontoon boat, and bid us adieu. It was truly a miraculous moment.
Thoughts to ponder -
What is worthy of faithfulness?
What is calling you to be faithful?
How can you better be faithful to yourself?
