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.

Mallard Ducklings Gathering Under Mother For Protection
Momma Duck chose her location wisely as her babies got ready for bed. She sat by the blue perennial next to the edge of our spa. If one duckling fell in the water at night the pool spa ledge is just the right length for a little hop. Mallard Ducks are fascinating creatures. They pick a partner and stay with them for life. Momma Duck cares for her ducklings and wants them to be safe from the number one urban predator, the cat. She stays glued to her babies as they sleep in the night. The ducklings know it is safe under Momma and they gather together each dusk.
