I have been pondering a few things this morning, random things here and there.

The one that stands out most in my mind is that Jesus was a carpenter. He worked with wood and nails. The tools of His trade ultimately became the tools of His TRADE – trading His life for our chance at eternal life.

Though it saddens me that He had to die for us, for me, I think it is awesome that His earthly trade was symbolic of His true purpose.

How does your trade point toward your ultimate purpose?

    • Me, too. Sometimes I think that I have found it and then something comes along to make me question what is or isn’t the case. Why do things have to be so very hard?
      I think that your ultimate purpose is quite clearly to love the animals and take care of the creatures that Heavenly Father has brought your way. 🙂
      Have a blessed weekend!
