Evening of enjoyment......


This evening after dishes where done and loaded in the dishwasher, my lunch for tomorrow made, I went outside to water my hanging baskets of flowers and I could hear birds just chirping away in the the Chinese maple tree behind us, I told Licorice "Man honey, there are some real upset birdies" I thought maybe a another cat was trying to have a feast, so I sat with my glass of water and my loyal friend in my lap making bread and drooling and listened to these lovely little creatures chat, then I could see a few on the fence and they where just babies, I'm thinking they must have just moved out of there little home that kept them secured for a while, a smile came to my face and my sweet loyal Licorice paid no mine to them, she found comfort in my lap, they would fly just a little bit from one branch to another, I sat there in just pure enjoyment, then they'd venture down to the ground back up to the bottom of the board that is on the bottom of the fence, they worked so hard to get back to the top of the fence, then they'd get little more braver and fly just a little farther from the last spot, then 3 of them flew one way and 2 flew the other way, I thought how sad, for awhile they were inseparable, they lived together, ate together, and now they will no longer be a family, made me a little sad, silly I know, but as child if I saw someone eating by them self it would make me sad for that person, if I saw a lost dog, I'd think, that poor little dog belonged to family at one time and I wondered if that family was just as scared and lonely as that dog appeared, and I am so Thankful that my family dont go one way or another and that I dont always eat alone and that I dont have fear of ever being lonely, even though there has been times I feel so alone, but in all reality I know I'm not ever alone and one day I will be like those little birds....flying straight up to heaven and I will feast with the King of kings!!!! I am reminded of that church song, " I'll Fly Away"

I'll Fly Away

Some glad morning when this life is o'er,
I'll fly away.

To a home on God's celestial shore,
I'll fly away.

I'll fly away, O Glory, I'll fly away.

When I die, Hallelujah, bye and bye,
I'll fly away.



When the shadows of this life have flown,
I'll fly away.

Like a bird thrown, driven by the storm,
I'll fly away.

I'll fly away, O Glory, I'll fly away.
When I die, Hallelujah, bye and bye,
I'll fly away.



Just a few more weary days and then,
I'll fly away.

To a land where joy shall never end,
I'll fly away.

I'll fly away, O Glory,
I'll fly away.

When I die, Hallelujah, bye and bye,
I'll fly away.

No more death and no more tears.. Reunited and joy unspeakable....

I love to slow down enough to enjoy nature's little gifts. So glad you found a little refuge in those few moments...for however long it lasted. Love to you sweet friend ~

Sweet thoughts. Very nice to watch nature isn't it. Tonight while eating dinner, I was lucky to watch a rabbit check out our backyard. It's fun to watch them.
