THEY are not the most attractive looking of animals, but Beavers have a significant part to play in our eco-system.
A farmer living near the flood prone village of Ladock in Cornwall, introduced Beavers to his farmland in 2017.
Since their arrival he has seen an increase in bird,animal and reptile species.
Storm Dennis, last year, put the Beavers method of flood prevention to the test and they passed.
That should not be a surprise because the majority of flora and fauna has a unique purpose for being here on earth with us and we should do our best to make sure that it stays that way.
As I watch nature documentaries I am always amazed to learn of how plant and animal life so supports our environment for our good.
Even at this winter time of the year, I look around and see so much beauty and wonder, that I have to give thanks to God for His wonderful creative hand, and that He did it for our enjoyment and pleasure.
As we think of the first Christmas Story, it is amazing that out from a dark, dismal and filthy stable should come the beauty of God in the form of His Son Jesus Christ, who came to bring light, life, joy and peace to a troubled, darkened world.
Let us open our lives to the Light of the World, Jesus Christ, at this Christmas time.
