New Title

Alright, so it didn't take me a week to come up with the new title picture.

The new title of my blog is going to be "He Maketh No Mistakes" (For those of you who get this by email - you need to come to the site to see the new picture. dillonsmommy.blogspot.com)

Why the Platypus you may ask? Well, I was trying to think of something in creation that is commonly thought of as a "mistake". If you know anything about the platypus scientists say it is a weird creature that is designed very oldly.
This is taken from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Platypus : The Platypus (Ornithorhynchus anatinus) is a semi-aquatic mammal endemic to eastern Australia and Tasmania. Together with the four species of echidna, it is one of the five species of monotremes, the only mammals that lay eggs instead of giving birth to live young. It is the sole living representative of its family (Ornithorhynchidae) and genus (Ornithorhynchus), though a number of related species have been found in the fossil record.
The bizarre appearance of this egg-laying, duck-billed mammal baffled naturalists when it was first discovered, with some considering it an elaborate fraud. It is one of the few venomous mammals; the male Platypus has a spur on the hind foot which delivers a poison capable of causing severe pain to humans.

So I thought of it. God didn't make a mistake when He created the platypus and neither did He make a mistake when He created Dillon. It was not a mistake that Dillon was born to Josiah and I, it was not a mistake that he has brain damge, it was not a mistake that he has so many long term effects from the birth injury. And it isn't a mistake that God is giving us another little boy so soon. Maybe God is going to use JayDonn to help Dillon heal, maybe He is just going to use JayDonn to help heal my heart. I don't know - I just know that HE MAKETH NO MISTAKES!

AMEN! Isn't it wonderful to know our God never makes any mistakes. I like the name you chose for your site and the platypus info is very interesting.
Have a great day. Proverbs 30:5
