I've named it John (as in the Baptist). The dove is a constant reminder of the event in the Bible when John the Baptist was baptizing in the Jordan River and the Spirit of God descended from the heavens in the form of a dove. "And I have seen, and have borne witness that this is the Son of God".
The dove reminds me that I too was free to have a new start in life by simply accepting Jesus as the Son of God and knowing He died on a cross for me. Erased all my wrongs to begin again ! So I am thankful for John's arrival in a hanging basket in my garden. My reminder that I am new....despite my wrinkles, lines and some loose skin here and there, I am new.
Regardless of my yesterday, I can start new everyday and so can you!
This is what echos from my heart today......
