It's great to be feeling good again... back to work... enjoying life... and savoring some moments with my girls. A big thank you to all of you who sent your prayers and encouragements during my down time... I love you all!
There's so many things I want to share with you but this is a favorite. Last weekend Jess came over and we made suet bird feeders together. It was a fun and easy project, filling the scooped out orange halves with all kinds of seeds, nuts and fruits held together with a peanut butter and lard mixture... a tasty treat to truly delight our fine feathered friends.
I kept four of the feeders here and she took the other four home with her.It took two days for this black headed grossbeak to find the one outside our dining room window... but how much fun to watch him enjoy this special treat.
they do not sow or reap or store away in barns
and yet your heavenly Father feeds them.
Are you not much more valuable than they?
Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life?
It brings a smile to my face to stop for a minute and let myself remember and reflect on the fact that you not only love me but value me. I think about how much joy these birds bring to me as I watch them simply go about their business and I cannot help but hope that we bring the same joy to you and even more. I also realize Lord, that just as you are the ultimate feeder of the birds, I used what you have given me to feed them too... much like how you use each of us as vessels of your love and blessings and provision to one another. So many thoughts to be gleaned from such a short passage Lord... let my heart consider to meditate on promises of your Word... and today... I choose not to worry but to trust you more! Amen.
