Sunday Spiritual 11.2.14

I hope you remembered to set your clock back!

My body clock never changes :-)

And some will say there is no God, 
try and tell that to the elephants. 

THE ELEPHANTS' JOURNEY TO PAY RESPECT,
BUT HOW DID THEY KNOW?

Lawrence Anthony, a legend in South Africa and author of 3 books including the bestseller,  The Elephant Whisperer.
He bravely rescued wildlife and rehabilitated elephants all over the globe from human atrocities, including the courageous rescue of Baghdad Zoo animals during US invasion in 2003.

On March 7, 2012 Lawrence Anthony died. 
He is remembered and missed by his wife, 2 sons, 2 grandsons, and
numerous elephants. 
Two days after his passing, the wild elephants showed up at his home
led by two large matriarchs.  Separate wild herds arrived in droves
to say goodbye to their beloved 'man-friend'. 
A total of 31 elephants had patiently walked over 12 miles
to get to his South African House.

 
 Witnessing this spectacle, humans were obviously in awe not only
because of the supreme intelligence and precise timing that these
elephants sensed about Lawrence's passing, but also because of
the profound memory and emotion the beloved animals evoked
in such an organized way: Walking slowly, for days,
making their way in a solemn one-by-one queue from their habitat
to his house.  Lawrence 's wife, Francoise, was especially touched,
knowing that the elephants had not been to his house prior to that day for well over 3 years!
But yet they knew where they were going. The elephants obviously
wanted to pay their deep respects, honoring their friend
who'd saved their lives - so much respect that
they stayed for 2 days 2 nights without eating anything. 
Then one morning, they left, making their long journey
back home.

SOMETHING IN THE UNIVERSE IS GREATER
AND DEEPER THAN HUMAN INTELLIGENCE.

I love God!
