Mark 16:17-18a And these signs will follow those who believe:...they will take up serpents....

I guess I am an authentic believer by Jesus' definition! Or just a little bit crazy. I turned around while I was in the garden today and found this beauty--an Oak Snake.

Jesus never said that they had to be poisonous; nor did He say that they wouldn't bite (although this one didn't even try), or that you wouldn't die...just that real hard-core believers would handle snakes!

I took it in the house to show the girls (who were in the bath tub) and they got to pet it, and then I released it in between the mailbox and the garden. Maybe I'll catch it again someday. This one was very docile. It made my day. Simple things amuse simple minds...

  1. See, and everyone thought I was crazy for my snake! Oh, by the way, Bram died last year. He was 15 years old!
