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.

On day sixth of the ducklings being in our pool I opened the gate. Momma Duck stared at the open door. She waved her wing as if it was time to leave. "Follow Me," she quacked. I quickly grabbed my camera and yelled to Michael.He said I'll help take pictures and we followed the ducklings down the path. We watched them safely cross the street. She was headed in the direction toward the creek. I lost the duck family as they went under the gate of a neighbors backyard. But I trust they made it safely to the creek a half mile from our home.
It reminded me that it was time for Michael to leave for college. I was glad we got to share the experience together.
