Turtle Tuesday: Flying Lessons

Welcome to Turtle Tuesday! Don't worry. B's not really on her soap box today. This is a SIGN. A sign of what God wants to do with all of us.

Meet B, the turtle dove.

In November, B was sitting in her church's Bible study, The Inheritance by Beth Moore. B and her friend B, the artist affectionately call Beth the 'Big B'. During the first session, God nudged the little b to ask the 'Big B' to b a part of what He was doing in the Village. B obeyed. She wrote Beth a letter sharing God's vision for the low income housing project known as the Village.

To color His world

Bring light into the darkness.

Living Proof Ministries said yes to our request. The BB's are now going weekly to the Village leading the Inheritance Bible Study. The ladies are loving it! We call our gatherings with the women 'Flying Lessons.'

Did you know when you get enough of the WORD in you, YOU CAN FLY?

Last week B shared two bars of Dove soap with each woman. One bar was a gift to them and the other was for sharing. It gave them an opportunity to spread the Lord's touch in their Village. The Dove bars carried this message written on the box.
Isa 40:31 those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength.They will soar on wings like eagles;they will run and not grow weary,they will walk and not be faint. Isa 40:31

If you want to fly, check with The Strong Tower above. B did. The runway has been cleared. It's time to fly. B's off for "Moore" flying lessons today. She can already feel the wind in her feathers and the sun on her shell.

Yes Julie, turtles can fly!

Turtle Tuesday: Words for 2010

Meet B, the New Year's turtle. (Her eyes are still red from staying up past midnight! )

B noticed many of you have chosen a 'word' for 2010. Not to b outdone, B, the New Year's turtle has a whole sentence to share. smiles

This dropped from above as B pondered the New Year.

How many people can you touch?

These words immediately directed B's thoughts off her turtle self to the world around her! The Lord was asking B to consider OTHERS. He wanted her red eyes to b focused on His purpose. B is thankful the Lord wants her to see clearly. Nothing like a drop of 'spiritual Visine' to kick off 2010! B, the New Year's turtle is on the lookout for people crossing her path. Who can she help, love, encourage, and reach out to with His touch TODAY? Not tomorrow. Today. B's looking up for direction. I pray this year you and B will not miss all the todays given to us.

Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider others better than yourselves. Each of you should look not only to your own interests, but also to the interests of others. Your attitude should be the same as that of Christ Jesus. Phil 2: 3-5
