Welcome to the new home of AM:PM Devotions for Kids. We are officially now DiddlySnails.com. Though we love the Striped Pantalones blog, that one is more for adults, so we went on our own and moved here. Be patient as there will be a few glitches as we make the change. And we may be re-organizing a bit, but nothing too drastic.
We want to explain the new name for you though.
When we were looking for a new website name, we wanted it unique for sure. A big part of who you are is uniquely made by God, and uniquely loved by God, so a basic “Devos for Kids” name just wouldn’t do for you, because you are crazy cool and awesome.
Diddly is kind of an opposite word but it’s awesome–Roald Dahl, (author of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Matilda, James & the Giant Peach) uses diddly and in his worlds, it means unique and exceptional. So of course, it works for you. It’s kind of interesting though that in regular English, diddly means something of little value.
It took Mr. Dahl to make the word into something exceptional, and it takes God to make you into something exceptional. God made you. He created you. And He created you to be diddly, in the best, unique way–you are exceptional to God. He loves you, He knows everything about you, and you are priceless to Him.
The Father has loved us so much! This shows how much he loved us: We are called children of God. And we really are his children.
1 John 3:1 (ERV)
Tomorrow, we’ll talk about snails.
Dear Lord, Thank you for making me unique, and for creating me exactly how you want me to be, even with all my imperfections. I have value in you, and I am precious to you. Thank you. Amen.
