Turtle Tuesdays: Pass It On

Meet B, the Message Card turtle.

A big smile came across B's face when she saw herself in print. It's not that she's got the 'Big head', although you would never know it from this photo. She was the perfect turtle model for this card today. B has the look alright. In fact, she is probably one of the most pokey turtles around, yet her message today is an unexpected one, especially from her.

"Lord, slow me down."
B doesn't want to miss the smile on her life from above. She doesn't want to walk by the flowers on her path without a second glance. It's not that she wants to smell the roses. She wants to B the rose in the garden she was meant to b.
The only way B will do that is to Hang out with the Creator of the garden. He walks there every day while the dew is still on the roses. I pray you and B will b a still model today. Slow down and wait for Him. He always comes calling.

B His Girl


  1. Love the card! We all need to slow, be still, and know that he is God.

    good work, turtle girl!

  2. Funny, I just set my timer for a 10 minute speed clean on the kitchen. But that was so I could slow down for what I enjoy most!

  3. I am so glad to B here today to read this message. We all need to slow down and B the rose. We miss so much by rushing.

  4. Want to live as the slow turtle capturing it all, inch by inch.

    I got your B card. Loved it. So professional. Thank you for sharing it with me.

    I took a picture of a turtle. Thought maybe it would give you a message to write about. I may send it to you via email.



  5. Oh - to just hang out with the CREATOR! His Presense is everything! We can find that in PRAYER - all through His created things - and in His 'still small voice' within us!

    You and I both know - He's been "all over us" this past week!! PRAISE HIM - for being THAT close!!

    And.... I didn't miss the butterfly in that picture. That was another one of God's special 'notes' for me!

    Looking UPward and Choosing JOY,
    [In Flight]

  6. What a bright and cheery turtle! I want to be the rose in the garden God means me to B!!! Your post makes me think that Jesus was never rushing here and there. I pray I will be a still model today.

    Sweet encouragement B!

    Love and hugs across the miles!

  7. Awesome! Funny, I just got a word for a friend this morning and God was telling her this exact thing. Seems we are always in accord. :-)

  8. Even a 'slow' turtle needs to slow down from her usual pace--otherwise we don't see what God is doing all around us!! Thanks for the reminder, B!

  9. Beautiful...Thanks for reminding us to slow down.

    Blessings! Heaven

  10. Beautiful B, I've missed stopping by. Thank you for your love and encouragement. You know this message speaks volumns to me especially since I just came off of over a week of just being with JESUS uninterrupted.

    I love you dear sister and your beautiful smile radiates GOD'S LOVE!

  11. Loved the message when you sent to me and love reading it now. I now have my own b reminder to b still...thanks b for b-ing u.

  12. Did you get my turtle pic I sent you? I got a failed message but I also see it in my sent folder.


  13. Love this, B! I think most people today are in a constant state of "RUSH!"

    Thanks for the reminder to slow down.

  14. Love your blog... I found it through Tea with Tiffany. Good word about slowing down.

  15. You know your bloggy friends have penetrated your heart when you think about them even when you are not blogging--I saw a gorgeious turtle in a little antique store in Jackson MS this weekend while visiting a friend. Immediately I thought of you!

  16. Yep, now I'm convinced that you've been following me around right? :)

    Like I said before, you always speak to the things on my mind and heart.
