Turtle Tuesday: B and The Turtle Saver

B would like to share one of her favorite books, The Turtle Saver by Laurie Parker. This book is written for little turtles but the message also applies to big turtles. Listen to what Laurie writes:

"A man driving along in his truck sees a turtle in the middle of the road. Being good-hearted, the man stops and moves the turtle to safety...

And this simple act that was kind-hearted
Is how several things that took place all got started...."

B loves this story. It shares the far-reaching effects of one good deed. It reminds her as she follows Jesus how important it is to B obedient. Often we classify whether the things the Lord nudges us to do are a 'big thing or a small thing'. We may use the size of the thing to evaluate the importance of the nudge. BIG mistake! Some turtles keep waiting on the log for the BIG thing and the Lord keeps waiting for those turtles to obey Him in the seemingly small thing. For who has despised the day of small things. Zech 4:10

If your heart reflects the REAL turtle saver, you know He ordered your steps to see that turtle in the road. Stop. Help the turtle in the middle of the road. They want to get to the other side just like you. Save the Turtles! B obedient!

  1. Now that is simply awesome. Who would think a book for a little turtle would contain such a big lesson then again, that is the lesson. Deep... I'm going to look around and see if I can get this book for my little ones.

  2. What a great reminder to be faithful in the little things!! Thank you for this post today. :)


  3. Cute. Looks like a book worth checking out!

  4. Hi B! This is a great reminder to be obedient in all things. I was recently *talking* with another bloggy friend about how often we compromise in the seemingly small things. Thanks!

    And of course I would always stop to move a turtle out of the road. :D

  5. It is the little things, isn't it? God has to remind me of that quite often.
