Saturday Smiles

It doesn't take much to make me smile, and I think that's what gives me such a positive outlook on life in general. I like to imagine God in his heaven, orchestrating such minute details that don't serve any other purpose than to give us joy, even if just for a moment.

Don't we do these things, too? How fun it is to surprise someone with a card in the mail for no other reason than to let them know you're thinking about them. So while it's easy to imagine that God must be too busy to bother with "the little things," that's just our human brain being unable to comprehend the magnitude of just what God can and does do.

So what caused me to wax philosophical on this Saturday?

"Gee thanks, Dad! Cool rope swing!
Bet none of the other birds in town have one of these!"

Romie said he would have loved to have seen the bird flying back to the nest with that in its mouth.

Is it a rope swing or is it a doorbell? give it a yank or two and let us know. :0)


Kylee Baumle said...


I can't reach it.

Lisa at Greenbow said...

This sort of makes you think they wanted you to find the nest. Or maybe an upsidedown exclamation point.

Janet, The Queen of Seaford said...

That is pretty funny.

garden girl said...

OMG, That is hilarious Kylee! It will give the babies something extra to grab onto in case they fall. Smart parents!

Robin's Nesting Place said...

I would have liked to have seen that too! What kind of bird built the nest?

The Friend said...

I would like to have seen the bird flying with that, too! Bet it was hilarious! BTW, I agree with you 100% about God planning those small things to give us joy. In my experience, that's the way He is and He does it all the time!

Wayne Stratz said...

hanks for passing along the smiles ;')

Corner Gardener Sue said...

That looks like a huge nest! I see someone else already asked what kind of birds made it, and I'm wondering too.

Yes, God is involved in our daily lives. His love for us is beyond our comprehension.

And this is why you're my favorite garden blogger! It's only natural to include God in your posts. Thank you for keeping it real.

Lisa ~ Ha! Or should that be Ha¡

Janet ~ We thought so!

Linda ~ Those birds think of everything, don't they? :-)

Robin ~ We don't know what kind of bird built it, because we haven't seen them coming or going yet.

The Friend ~ God is good! :-)

Wayne ~ It was my pleasure!

Sue ~ It's not that big, really. Yep - we always try to put God in a box, don't we? Silly us!

Kara ~ Awww, Kara, you're too sweet! *hugs*
BTW, every time I see you've left a comment, I always think at first that it's our daughter Kara! But she doesn't use her real name in Blogger and she rarely comments. Then I remember it's you! :-)

Connie ~ :-)
