Meet the Newest Member of the Family!

Say "hello" to the newest member of the family!


Momma and Daddy found him on the sidewalk while on their morning walk yesterday...  We suspect that he had just recently hatched- Hannah said she still sees his egg tooth!

(Hannah's hand- btw) :)

Isn't he cute?  He's so tiny!

He is a Three Striped Mud Turtle...  still researching on how to thoroughly take care of him... :)

This tiny little turtle reminds me of the verse that I have been recently pondering...

"Are not two sparrows sold for a cent? And yet not one of them will fall to the ground apart from your Father. But the very hairs of your head are all numbered. So do not fear ; you are more valuable than many sparrows."

Matthew 11:29-31

God knew about this little turtle crawling around on the sidewalk.  He knew exactly when my parents would come strolling by and see it.  He made sure that the little thing wouldn't get stepped on.  He had a wonderful plan- even for a little turtle's life.  He knew that Momma and Daddy would bring it home and make their nine children very happy.  He knew that He would be glorified as we pondered the wonders of His design...

Just a tiny 3/4 inch turtle.

How much more valuable are you?

Just food for thought...

Anyway, this little guy needs a name!  Any suggestions?
