I sit here waiting
i do long
for friends that I
watch soar on by
for their song
After a morning at church, we settled in for a restful afternoon. From my bedroom, I heard hustling and bustling coming from the kitchen. Curiously I got up and went to see what was going on…
“Mom- look what I did, ” my oldest daughter smiled proudly as she opened the cabinets. All organized and tidy. And on the floor- probably more stuff than was in the cabinets. All expired canned foods, old tupperware, and junk, junk, junk!
“That is wonderful, babe! But make sure you put all the junk in the trash.” I tried my best to hide my disapproval of the huge mess in the floor. I knew that I was going to be the one to finish this project…when all I wanted to do was take a nap!
“And guess what else I did, Mom- I found a bag of birdseed and put it out on the patio for you!” She was all smiles, knowing how much I love to watch birds- something I have not done much lately.
She always knows how to make my day. Simply knowing that she thought about me and did something she knew would make me happy was the highlight of my afternoon! As I finished cleaning up the kitchen this morning, I realized that even in the middle of a mess, there’s always a reason to be blessed! And so this morning, after I got the girls on the bus, I found myself running to the kitchen window every time I heard a noise- anxiously waiting for my feathered friends to make their first appearance!
They’re on their way 🙂
He gives food to every creature.
His love endures forever.
