We also had a pet turtle for two days.
We passed him on the way home from church, making his way across the busy road.
We had just learned in church that morning about Saul and how slow he was to trust in God and so we dubbed him Saul.
He was our pet for two days before we took him to our creek and let him go. Every time we head down there now, we keep our eyes open for Saul. Maybe, to thank us for freeing him, he will pop out and say Hello.
If not, he was fun to have while we had him.
