This is Holy Week for B and maybe for you too. She reflects on some of its meaning on this Turtle Tuesday.
Meet B, the spotted turtle.
As you can see B has a variety of spots. They run in the family. These spots symbolize the life of sin she led. She conformed to the the pattern of the world, making the same mistakes over and over. Today she remembers the price paid to remove these spots from her life.
The stick pins remind B that she hasn't always had a soft shell for God. She was hard hearted and stiff necked. She walked in her own ways for years. Now she wants to be like soft clay in the potter's hands. B wants to be available for God to use.
B gets low on the floor today, humbling herself before the Lord. She can never thank Jesus enough for shedding His blood for her. He did the same to wash away your spots too. We are family. He gave me this word for you and me today . 'Remember Me.'
For God was pleased to have all his fullness dwell in him, 20 and through him to
reconcile to himself all things, whether things on earth or things in heaven, by
making peace through his blood, shed on the cross. Once you were alienated
from God and were enemies in your minds because of your evil behavior. But now
he has reconciled you by Christ's physical body through death to present you
holy in his sight, without blemish and free from accusation— 23 if you continue
in your faith, established and firm, not moved from the hope held out in the
gospel. Col 1:19-23
