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.

Dusk was approaching and the ducklings needed to sleep for the night. Momma Duck chose to rest by the blue perennial, next to the edge of our spa. The ducklings huddled underneath her one by one. One little duckling fell into the water. Momma Duck chose her location wisely because the ducklings were able to jump back to safety by the ledge of the spa. Momma Duck stayed faithfully on the ducklings until dawn for protection from predators in the night. I had watched Momma Duck for ten years but this is the first time I noticed a wide deep blue stripe edged with two white brushed lines on her majestic wing. She wasn't plain at all, she was beautiful.
