The Birds and the Bees.


There is a difference between sitting in the dark and waiting for the dawn.

There is a difference between saying, “What in the world is going on in my life?” and “What is God doing in my life?”

There are many things I cannot change in my life at the moment.  And there are more than a few that come as a bit of a shock.  Like an infestation of bees into my backyard as I sat on the porch this week and watched with my jaw dropped.

There are things that I hope will happen, but they are not happening right now.  I am waiting for the dawn.

So I choose to receive what is happening, and do what I can in the meantime.

In the midst of the bees, I had paint, ink and card.  So I decided to paint bluebirds flying up my daughter’s fabulous pink bathroom wall.

Bees?!  Evidently.  But also, Birds.

And after a day?  The Bees left.

  1. I always loved your creative gifts, thanks for this way to look at life…the gospel is not a doctrine of the tongue, but of life.
