One of the things I really look forward to this time of the year is checking our blue bird houses at our country place outside of Brenham. Here is one of our new babies searching for some food! It’s so fascinating to watch this cycle of life. Within a month, the nest is built, eggs are laid, babies hatch, and then one day the babies fledge. All this time, the mother is never far away, always taking care of her brood, teaching them to fly and take care of themselves, and then turning them loose. Sound familiar?
One of the lessons I’m learning on this journey of mine is to look for joy in all things, to give thanks in all things. That’s one of the things I love about going to CHR — we can leave the busyness of life behind and find time to enjoy the Source of Life. Isn’t it amazing how God gives us time, but we often don’t have time for Him?
