I do miss you so much since I moved away. I hope your stream is flowing cool waters in this hot weather. I think of you often when I feel so small against the overwhelming forces that seem to come out of nowhere. I do not doubt that you still hold your head high from your shell as you cross the road. I’m sure you never flinch as the many forces fly past you. I know there is no obstacle in your path you cannot overcome. You wear your armour so well. Your faith is obvious. I know you are not exactly where you want to be right now, but your ability to have joy in your circumstances is amazing. You are a creature of God. Even though you cannot talk, I know this by the way you handle life. Your presence is not your own. We share.
