Little Jack and Jubilee could just have well been named Lickety and Split. Or Helter and Skelter. Or Pell and Mell. Or Blue and Streak.
These days, the kids’ favorite game goes like this: Follow Mama (Blueberry) out the barn, up the hill, around the corner, and to the weeds where she browses. Take a few bites. Wheel around and retrace steps all the way back into the barn and down the aisle—at breakneck speed. Show off to the little cousins. Squeak for Mama, retrace steps, and sprint to her side as fast as possible. Repeat. Repeat again!
“The spacious, free life is from God, it’s also protected and safe….When we run to him, he saves us.” –PSALM 37:39-40 (MSG)
