I have declared this week to be beach week here on my blog, and to kick it off, I share with you Nod & Bob. They reside in Half Moon Cay in the Bahamas. That’s right, they are styrofoam balls, but if you look closely, they have eyes and very cute noses. My husband and I gave them their eyes when we were happily floating in the crystal blue waters last summer. (Yes, we defaced the styrofoam, but hey, they look much better now!) The reason that I share these two characters with you is this: they are content, they are happy just to nod and bob along on the water. They are rather tied down to their swimming area containment job, but seem to make the best of it. They encourage visitors with their pleasant countenance. And they stick together as friends through it all.
“A friend loves at all times…” Proverbs 17:17a
“…be content with what you have, because God has said, ‘Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.” Hebrews 13:5b
So if you head down to the Bahamas and see Nod & Bob, please send them our best!
