Pleasant Surprise

Yesterday, as I was speaking to my husband on the telephone, I glanced out the backdoor and saw, not one, not two, but several beautiful bluebirds, perched on the ledge of our deck! It was so beautiful, and I got so excited, because we usually only see one or two such birds at a time, but it seems that since we’ve added a bird bath to our backyard garden this past spring, we get to see more birds than ever. These lovely little bluebirds were everywhere! On the deck, perched in a now leafless tree, and splashing all about in the rainwater filled bird bath! This was such a treat, such a pleasant surprise and I’m reminded that there are so many such blessings that surround me everyday, and I can’t help but wonder how many go unnoticed…

“O LORD, how manifold are your works! in wisdom have you made them all: the earth is full of your riches.

Psalm 104:24
