squirrels vs. seals

In church last week, our speaker shared a story that was pretty hilarious, but still got us thinking.

Him & his family went to La Jolla & as they were walking to the beach area they saw a squirrel just sitting there so his son [who's 5 i think] stopped to look at it. The squirrel wasn't doing anything, he was just sitting there staring back at the little boy. His Dad took a couple steps around a bush & some rocks & saw that, on the beach, there were at least 30 seals [or sea lions] just laying out on the beach & playing in the waves! Big ones, little ones, baby ones! So he went back to his son & wanted to surprise him & told him to come over to where he was because he wanted to show him something. The boy didn't move. His dad, really excited & hoping to get his attention, told him about the seals! The boy said "i'm just gunna stay here w/ this squirrel..."

moral of the story: Don't sit there, staring at squirrels when God wants to show you a beach full of seals!

Now, I personally really like squirrels & think they are the cutest most interesting creatures, but i have seen a beach full of elephant seals before & it is simply breathtaking.
