I CAN FEED MYSELF!
Here I am, a bright young teen and I have learned to feed myself. Mama and Papa Bluebird are tending to my new brothers and sisters but I fly free now! Remember the old song, A Bluebird of Happiness? We have found a lot of happiness these last 2 yrs. since the Blue Birds have graced our back yard. What a blessing. My old friend Esther and I share our affinity for Bluebirds. Esther recycles all of her greeting cards creating new ones. I am the proud recipient of many of her creations and I treasure the Blue Bird cards. Esther says she is not crafty but she does calligraphy and made a beautiful framed rendering of my most favorite Bible verse from Isaiah 40:31
They who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength ~
They shall mount up with wings like eagles ~
They shall run and not be weary ~
They shall walk and not grow faint.
And the hymn says, "Teach me Lord, Teach me Lord to wait." Thank you Esther, my sweet Octogenarian.
