Meet B, the pearl coated turtle.
Have you ever wanted to blend in your environment and not b seen? B is known for b'ing a lot like that in her turtle world. This information may come as a surprise to you, but it's true. She's a little sheepish, even for a turtle.
The question is: Why would a shiny turtle ever want to look like the matte colors around her? B, the pearl coated turtle, knows the answer to that question. Opening your 'box' to the world exposes your heart. (Cupid is not the only one who shoots arrows.) B uses her 'box' for protection and control. Often her actions interfere with the maker of her pearly coat. Can any of you on the B log relate to B's struggle?
B has something inside though that can't be hidden. The Living Word is inside her box. He cannot be contained. He always operates 'out of the box' , but you have to b open to see Him work.
One of His Names is The Good Shepherd. B carries a picture of Him in her heart. The Good Shepherd watched over B when she was not paying any attention to His leading. Talk about a stiff neck! B had one. She left His pasture to taste what looked like greener grass. The Good Shepherd, in turn, left the fold to find her. He never gave up on the fact that B was HIS 'sheepish turtle'.
B can never fully express her gratitude to Him. She tries though. Whether B is using her pearls as camouflage or openly letting Him use her box, He is with her. One day B will break the hinge off her box. It will b a Beautiful thing to Him.
He has made Everything beautiful in its time. Ecc. 3:11
Thank you Jesus. I love you. B
