A New Creature

Meet Wally.

He is a beautiful studmuffin with one little secret.

He's balding.

As in a lot....

See, Wally ALWAYS sports a magnificent coat, but this winter's was particularly spectacular. Maybe it was the extreme cold, but Wally was a mini-wooly mammoth. The downside to all that cozy warmth was that he developed some pretty matted fur.

Oh, everything seemed fine from the outside, but if you looked deeply enough, Wally was an itchy, uncomfortable mess.

There was no nice, comfortable, easy way to fix it. The hair was felted much too thickly to comb through. The only way to make Wally beautiful was to take all the old messed-up, worn-out parts away and let him start over.

It's not the prettiest process (in fact, it is downright unattractive!), but in the end, Wally will be like new again.

Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. II Corinthians 5:17
