The turtle lives its life within
a shell. He may choose to
stay safe inside his shell or to
venture out and risk all to find
food, travel about and

Life is short.
Take the risk.

I was privileged to hold one of God’s smallest miracles in the palm of my hand. I marveled at the strength and power of its tiny pounding heart. As I released it, the tiny bird flew straight to its nest, never losing its direction or purpose.

The Legend of the Dogwood
In Jesus' time, the dogwood grew to a stately
size and a lovely hue. 'Twas strong & firm it's
branches interwoven, for the cross of Christ its
timbers were chosen. Seeing the distress at this
use of their wood, Christ made a promise which still
holds good: "Never again shall the dogwood grow
large enough to be used so. Slender & twisted, it shall
be with blossoms like the cross for all to see.
As blood stains the petals marked in brown
The blossom's center wears a thorny crown.
All who see it will remember me
Crucified on a cross from the dogwood tree.
Cherished and protected this tree shall be
A reminder to all of my agony."
