I've kept several turtles for years both indoors and outdoors in various set ups. I am very excited about my new tank topper with basking space and a viewing window for my 75 gallon tank. It's not finished yet, but it's going to be great!

When I see a turtle, I think about how the Bible says one of the fruits of the Spirit is long suffering. Turtles can live a long, long time. You can't look at a turtle's size and accurately tell its age because they grow more during good years than lean years. Turtles know how to endure hardships and survive. I am also reminded how the Bible says the race is not for the swift and how we have need of endurance to receive what God has promised.
