Turtle Tuesday: The Wake Up Word

This morning B woke up to the sound of a beeping alarm and a word from the Lord. Just one single whispered word.

By definition, behold means to fix the eyes upon; to see with attention; to observe with care.

The Lord's wake up word opened B's eyes to the unseen.  She turned toward the Son, Jesus Christ. B admits sometimes her focus is on so many other faces.   Today His beauty is in the eye of  B, the Beholder Turtle. B knows if she misses Him, she misses everything.

Behold. B thought it was worth sharing.  What's catching your eyes today?

One thing have I desired of the Lord, that will I seek after;  that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the Lord and to inquire in his temple. 
Psalm 27:4

Turtle Tuesdays: Picking Up What I Laid Down

 It's been over two years since I have written a post on my blog. As I seek to change that today, I felt the need to pause and ponder why I stopped sharing.  I have to say stopping wasn't a thought out, prayed over decision. It just kind of happened. Tuesdays came and went. Before you know it, the turtle girl became comfortable in her shell of silence. To be totally honest, it brings tears to my eyes now. The effect of not sharing has had greater consequences for me than for anyone who would have read a post.  

A few weeks ago, I saw B, the long neck pencil. Her googly eyes caught mine and well, the rest is history.  I picked up the pencil. The Lord's message was very clear.  He had not withdrawn His call to write.  Today I am reminded The Lord has never asked me to do anything that felt like a slam dunk, but He also never ask me to go it alone.

Thank you Lord.  I am humbled by your grace and mercy.  I can do all thing through Christ who strengthens me. Phil 4:13
