Why are stories important? How have they shaped our thinking and view of the world? Come follow my stories and see what we have in common. Ducks In My Pool, is about a family of ducks who chose our backyard as a safe place to build their nest. For over ten years ducklings have hatched and swam in our pool. I realized God gave me a metaphor through the ducks to show His love and safety as I trust in Him.

Momma and Daddy Duck have been together for over fifteen years. They love each other. They've been together through the hatchings, through the sad parts when some of them don't make it. Daddy Duck liked to lie side by side Momma Duck while she slept. Their eyelids shined like golden stars. There was a nearby creek the Daddy Ducks liked to gather together while the Momma Ducks cared for their young. Daddy Duck sometimes corrected the little ducklings if they were lagging behind. He knew how important it was for them to keep together when it was time to leave for the creek. One little duckling left behind was dangerous. The number one predator in the urban area was the cat.
