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.

Without Electricity Or Power
Texas is part of the vast 2000 mile radius of winter snow and ice. I had a snow day so it was fun staying at home. While I was home the electricity went out over the period of the day to conserve energy. The fifteen minutes the electricity was off seemed like hours. I thought just a hundred years ago people lived without electricity and were just fine. I realized how dependent I am on the need to turn on the light so my rooms are bright and cozy. I take for granted how easy it is to heat up soup in the microwave. My laptop was charged so I tried to use it while the electricity was off. Then I realized it didn't work because the router hooked up to the main computer was not charged. I thought am I charged to Jesus my source? Am I depending on scripture today? Am I using this time to think about Him my source. John 15:5 I am the Vine: you are the branches. Whoever lives in Me and I in him bears much (abundant) fruit. However, apart from Me (cut off from vital union with me) you can do nothing.
