When I was a child I never hesitated to run to my Daddy when I needed him, whether I had skinned my knee,was scared by a bug,you name it. I never stopped to wonder if I was a good enough girl, was my problem big enough … I knew his love was more than big enough no matter what I did or didn’t do. GOD WANTS US TO RUN INTO HIS ARMS THAT SAME WAY!

If we know the truth of the following words and that they apply to each of us created in His image, AS WE ARE, why must the hate continue to defeat love? Where is peace?
14 I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made.[a]
Wonderful are your works;
my soul knows it very well. -Psalm 139:14

Okay, I know I need to explain that one. My Godchild who’s not a child anymore learned words differently than any other child I know. I think, in an entirely unbiased opinion, that she was reading novels in the delivery room and speaking in sentences on the way home from the hospital . . . but anyway, among her first “real” words spoken (as opposed to “did she just say that?” words) was duck and quack. She is my much-loved duckling even if she is not from my own nest.
I didn’t hatch any of my own, but the Lord blessed me by putting her in my heart in the place my own ducklings would otherwise be. That being said, I’m thinking of God’s creatures great and small and what blessings they are.
I wonder if the cows, horses, bunnies, and birds feel a combination of pride, joy, and a little bit of sadness as their “ducklings,” calves, and the like grow up and fly to a distant branch of a distant tree to establish their own personal nest? Like me, do they wonder if they’ll be visited? Remembered? I’m smiling though for my duckling has always made me so proud of her!
I pray that Jesus will watch over all the little ducklings in our lives, and especially those flying off to a distant nest. I also ask that He will give an extra hug to those of us who watched them grow and love them still and will love them always.

Meet Teddi Cha. She’s not perfect but Jesus loves her. She has sparkly bling on her apron top/bib and has a cross tattoo on her little butt. She is a one of a kind original like the one who hand stitched her . . . who is also imperfect but loved by Jesus.
She started out as a pair of unwanted slipper socks, but when you look at your circumstances or your slipper socks in a new way changes happen and things become new and different and perhaps lot better. In Teddi Cha’s case, turning a slipper sock inside out (as I pondered why anyone would wear the foolish things) made me realize that they were fuzzy inside . . . and the strange white rubbery squiggles on the bottom do not show a bit when you turn life (or socks) inside out and give them another look . . .

Think about this. It seems we are constantly blessed and yet we do not even know it.
If we could see the miracle of a single flower clearly, our whole life would change.
