My name is Frederick.
I am a flamingo.
And these are my adventures.
Today, I have set off to explore the world around me. A world that is not so bigger than an apartment. I don’t know if I will venture further, that is to be further disclosed. However, I am working on contentment. (That will be my word of the day.)
When I was in the dollar store, I would gaze upon the windows, with the shining sunlight coming through, and wonder what would I become? Is this it?
But my owner found me and decided that I, out of the community of flamingos, was worthy.
I feel it is in my nature to be vain, and my owner is trying to break me out of my ways. I can prove to her I can be better.
Therefore, I found this tree that I have found worthy.
She tells me this is not quite the same.
“I love you,” she told me. “Do you love this tree?”
Glancing at the tree, I realize I “loved” the beauty…
“I love the beauty of what it is.” I answered.
“I love the beauty of who you are,” she tells me.
I am puzzled in this world. I lived around people seeing outward appearances and buying based on value.
Now, I am living a new life. But for right now, even though I may not have broken my ways of trying to rule over this household…I must admit…there are so many questions I have.
I must seek further into these lessons of life.
P.S. My owner is displeased I tried to claim dominance over all.
(NIV) Jeremiah 1:05, “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart.”
