These are pictures of the dam in the back of our house, and this is little Bucky Beaver who built it. But Bucky, being artistic, got bored with building dams, and after much practice, finally gnawed himself a fiddle. Not only that, he discovered he could play it like nobody's business! He started playing for money on the streets. See his tiny open fiddle case on the street waiting for tips? He finally got so good that he was playing in large concert halls, and of course, he got the girl! Sadly, the friendship didn't last, as there wasn't a good orthodontist near their home. Well, if you believe this, then you didn't watch the Superbowl on Sunday! This beaver is a Superbowl commercial, one of my favorites, so I couldn't resist taking some pictures and making up my own story to go with them. But the dam IS actually right in back of our house. I took the pictures of it last fall, and have been waiting for an excuse to post them. I was so enchanted by the fiddle playing beaver that I wasn't too sure what the commercial was exactly for, but I think it was about finding what you are good at. Romans 12:6 tells us that we each have a gift that God has given us. If we don't think so, then we just haven't found it yet. 1 Cor. 7:7 tells us that EACH has his own gift from God. As if that weren't exciting enough, Romans 11:29 tells us that our gift is irrevocable. Basically, that means that God gave it to us permantly, and it will never go away or wear out! So this beaver is just fiddling like there's no tomorrow, and that's what I want to do with my gifts for as long as I can.
