Have you ever gotten hurt because you weren’t paying attention?
I did this this week with a piece of pizza. I burnt, not only my mouth, but also my chin. A whole chunk of flesh is now missing from my face, but it was all because I didn’t watch or wasn’t paying attention for the signs of it being too hot.
I think my favorite sign of spring is to wake up and hear the chirping of birds.
There is something so natural and princess-like about it all at the same time. Either way, it definitely makes for a fresh start to a great morning.
Today, is March 20, 2019, the first day of Spring.
We made it! After such a long winter it seems like yet again, God is faithful. The sun is shining and we are refreshed.
This morning I opened up a window to hear the birds and delighted in this…feeling. I can’t quite explain it but it is definitely a God encounter. It rejuvenates and makes life on this earth feel precious. It is another sign of something wonderful yet to come.
I thought about signs this morning and wondered if I “see” them or “feel” them as much as the birds.
I decided that no…after this week each morning it is something I need to work on. I pray that I get better at seeing signs from Him. It not only pays to be a good communicator here on earth, but when it comes to God, communication is key. I just want to make sure I’m playing my part. The birds are, so should I. Listening for Him each day and practicing my communication efforts should be of new utmost importance. And in that way I will be blessed. And Amen to that!
“Look at the birds in the sky; they do not sow or reap, they gather nothing into barns, yet your heavenly father feeds them. Are not you more important than they?” Matthew 6:26
