Don't you love how Almighty God protects us when we do not even realize that we need His protection? Ok, Mom, you can just skip to the next post! It was not a black snake. I was talking with the Outdoor Expert. He informed me that black snakes do not have triangular heads, nor fangs, nor are the insides of the mouth white, they are pink. It was a cotton mouth, a water moccasin, a VIPER! Yes, I have seen them before in Texas, and this vile creature was much darker than the ones down there. Oh, thank you Lord for your everlasting mercy!
