Giant Leatherback Sea Turtle Crashes Wedding

A leatherback sea turtle crashed a beach wedding in St. Croix, and proceeded to lay its eggs before the startled bride and groom and wedding guests.

Redditor In3 wrote, "It came ashore, circles around digging a hole, laid its eggs on the beach, covered them back up, and rolled back out into the ocean."

How will the bride and groom make sense of this occurrence at one of their most important days of their lives? They may shrug it off as a coincidence and good luck, but it is indeed a very rare event as there are only an estimated 2,300 adult females of the Pacific leatherback remaining in the world, making it the most endangered marine turtle subpopulation. 

Yet through the perspective of faith, the newly-weds and the guests may grow a sense of awe towards the creator of this world. And they could take it as a gift from God, and know that they can weather all storm by placing their trust in our creator God, Lord Jesus Christ.
