Turtle Tuesday: Parts is Parts

Ever dreamed of having it all together?

Today B admits she wishes that described her. You can tell from her photo it doesn't. B has not officially shared what is going on in her world but today's the day.

Meet B, the parts turtle. She is everything you see.
Very nutty with a few loose screws!

Why? B's moving. Notice the staff in her hand.

B is going to the desert. Phoenix, the Valley of the Sun/Son. Like her blog friend Elaine, she's praying for Peace For The Journey. B has been pondering what this move is all about. In the Bible the words led and fled come to mind when B thinks of the desert. B knows the Lord is leading her there. This verse will not leave her alone.

Hos 2:14-15
"Therefore I am now going to allure her;I will lead her into the desert and speak tenderly to her. There I will give her back her vineyards,and will make the Valley of Achor a door of hope.There she will sing as in the days of her youth,as in the day she came up out of Egypt.

B, the parts turtle may not have it all together but she is okay with her turtle self. After all, parts is just parts. If a trip to the desert is needed for B to complete her mission on earth, so b it. Like the ancients, B is longing for a better country anyway-a heavenly one!

Stay tuned. B thinks the choir is warming up... Here comes the Son!

  1. What a struggle and a victory at the same time!

  2. I have to tell you that I love your parts turtle! That is ingenious! :D

    When God moved me from CA to TX I was very nervous about it all and very excited too. He will keep you in His care.

    Praying for you now. My favorite turtles live in the desert. They are called tortoises. :)

  3. Thank you for sharing part of your life with me. I feel a bit nutty and I'm not moving. At least, not that I know of yet. God is sure stirring the pot, isn't He?

    I know there will be streams in the desert.

    Thanks for this great post! Loved it.

  4. Can't believe you'll b doing radio tomorrow with all you are doing to prepare. :) You rock..

  5. My husband uses that term all the time...now I will always think of this post whenever he says.."parts is parts"...

  6. The LORD is leading. Trust Him. Praying for you in your move. Happy Mother's Day and blessings!


  7. I love all your parts. I'm just sad because AZ isn't any closer to me in TX. I'll be praying for your journey to the desert. God will do amazing things girl!!! Amazing.

  8. Are you MOVING moving to AZ or going for a visit?

  9. I know you're probably up to your eyeballs in moving boxes...just wanted you to know I'm praying for you today B.

    You've been on my heart today.xox

  10. I laughed about the few loose screws! Have a blessed weekend friend!

  11. I cannot tell you how many times I've been to the desert, friend. Part of me thinks I was meant to stay there...

    In many ways, all of life is a journey in the desert for we, like the ancients of old, aren't home yet... but we know it's coming.

    There's beauty to be found and felt and tasted in the desert. Anywhere with Jesus is beautiful.

    Love you.


  12. Oh, and my physical move which is one month away, is about to be my undoing. Honestly, I've misplace my sanity and am in fervent search for its return!

    Talk about needing some peace for the journey...

  13. Came by to say I was thinking of you sister and praying for you.

  14. Change can be so hard, and yet I know God will bless you B while holding your hand and leading you to the place He has all prepared for you, even in the desert!

    Love your parts turtle! Where ever do you find these cute little guys?

  15. Blessings to you B as He moves you!

  16. Hey girl - missing you! Can't wait to hear more about what God's doing over there. Love ya

  17. What a MESSAGE! Yes the choir is warming up!!!

    I still want to get to see you before you leave...:) I don't know if that's possible with your schedule though---and ours. But I still BELIEVE....
