Here it is a weekend again. Does it feel that time is zooming by and you are wondering where it has gone? Take time out and just be still beside a quiet stream if you are lucky enough to be near one. If not, just gaze at this one until your world slows down a bit. Happy Saturday.
Along with the red wing blackbirds, chickadees, robins, cardinals, and sparrows usually hanging out in my yard, these three newcomers paid me a visit within the last few days. It made me very happy to see the rose breasted grosbeak, a bluebird and a junco vying for a place on the feeder and even gracing my deck with a short visit. All these feathered friends add to my happiness. Happy Saturday.
There are so many things that get in the way of our complete happiness: disrespect, hypocrites, rudeness, thoughtlessness…things that really bother us to bits.
Try not to let any of this bug you today and have a Happy Saturday.
Have you ever been so tired that you thought you could sleep anywhere, even in a tree? I know someone with insomnia who said this to me once, and when I spotted today’s picture on Pinterest it immediately caught my attention. It looks like this guy was just hanging around when he got tired and decided to have a nap. Sweet dreams.
Today I discovered this rare and beautiful bird on Pinterest. This yellow cardinal was seen on an Alabama bird feeder and said to be one in a million.
We should not always expect the ordinary when the extraordinary can be within our range of vision. Have an extraordinary day.
If the sun is shining brightly in your part of the world enjoy and absorb its energy. If your day is dull and drizzly there is always some brightness and color to be enjoyed somewhere.
This picture from Pinterest was in my Inbox this morning, and where I live the day is dull and drizzly. Behold the beauty!
I am not a fan of fashion simply because shopping for clothes is one of my least favorite pastimes. Mind you, seeing someone else dressed to the nines in the latest trends tends to inspire me to at least scout out a mannequin or two in a couple of “tailored to oldies” windows in a nearby plaza or mall.
However, finding the perfect tailor like the One who outfitted this charming creature would be an answer to my aversion to clothes shopping.
Again, scripture says it beautifully: Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. Matthew 6:29 NIV
(The scripture actually refers to lilies of the fields but I’m leaning on poetic license here.)
