One More

Chipmunk puts whole peanut in cheek (photo: Craig Sabin)

I know this will fit,
if I just push a bit,
and then once it’s in,
I will say with a grin,
“I’ve only had four,
I’ve got room for one more!”

Don’t think me a glutton,
that’s just not the case.
I just need to carry this
back to my place
to store in my pantry since
Winter is coming apace!


“The eyes of all look to You, and You give them their food in due time. You open Your hand and satisfy the desire of every living thing. The LORD is righteous in all His ways and kind in all His deeds.”

The 145th Psalm, verses 15-17

Chipmunk cheek pouches are purpose-built for transporting large amounts of food for storage in their burrow pantries to keep them well-fed during the long winters, when they awake to enjoy a meal in between periods of torpor. Yet another small wonder of the natural world that reveals our Creator’s wisdom and marvelous creativity.

  1. Craig, love your pics of Chipmunk! A thought occurred that as God made chipmunk pouches, our Creator also designed us with space for grace in our hearts? (Enough to get through each day?) Like Chipmunk we just need to fill our hearts every morning. Grace & Peace! – Virginia : )

    1. Thank you so much for your encouraging comment, Geri! Cute is the operative word for chippies, to be sure. The little creatures have a charm all their own. God bless!

    1. I’m so glad you enjoyed, Linda! Yes, my amazement also grows with age. I, too, was an atheist once, in my case because of hurt and hypocrisy coupled with a love of sin. Praise the Lord He chose such as us to reveal the depths of His mercy and the wideness of His grace! God bless!
