Out on a Limb


Sometimes . . .


you have to . . .


go out on a limb.

Scary?
Sometimes.

But it helps to remember that
underneath
are the everlasting arms.

And it helps to remember that
our Perfect Example
went
out on a limb . . .
way out on a limb. . .
and hung there
and died.

For me.
For you.

Oh Glenda - this is perfect. I never thought of out on a limb in this way before but I really like it.

Wonderful! and a great analogy - sometimes it is scary to "go out on a limb" - but is worth it!

Very touching post, you are right. Is that a red squirrel? Ours have white bellies.

Cute post, Glenda. We do have to go out on a limb many times in our lives, don't we??? It can get scary --but with God, we can do it.
Hugs,

Cute squirrel. We have them in our back yard---and believe it or not, they live in the palm trees.

Your post...A nice reminder of God's love for us in sending his Son.

A beautiful post and so true. I love your little squirrel. I bet he is a relative of the one we have at our house. Ours eats all the bird seed. Love it.
