OUR GOOD, SHORT BOOKS

THIS WEEK’S REVIEW:  “THE VISION:  Telling Kids That They Can Make the World a Better Place”

Eleanor Jones of Pasadena, California, says, “I recently had the opportunity to read this book and was VERY IMPRESSED!!!  The diversity and dynamics of the content alone are worth its weight in gold.  Not only is this book a GREAT educational tool in schools for our youth today, but it’s a book (and story) that can be shared in our church Sunday School classes and in our own homes.  It’s rich in history and offers encouragement for the present and the future.”

TODAY’S QUOTE

TODAY’S BLOG

I can relate to this story, because it’s exactly the way I felt when we put our humming bird feeder out on the deck. . .waiting and hoping.

The Bird Feeder

~ Gina Wehmann

Last fall I hung outside my window a bird feeder. Now not knowing the first thing about wild birds, I assumed that as soon as I hung this bird feeder outside, a multitude of beautiful birds would be swooping to my new addition. Days, weeks and months went by; NO BIRDS.

I asked so many people what to do? What was I doing wrong? “Nothing” most of them replied. “Just wait.” So I waited and waited and waited trying everything possible, to attract these birds.

I cleaned off the deck, I changed the feed, I washed the feeders, I even made the cat go out the other door! But nothing seemed to work. So……I waited, “with patience and hope.”

Two (2) months later, on a Saturday afternoon, I FROZE! What to my eyes had appeared on the bird feeder but the most beautiful bird I have ever seen in my life! All of a sudden HUNDREDS UPON HUNDREDS OF BIRDS WERE APPEARING FROM EVERYWHERE!

What a beautiful lesson I learned from this little creature. “Patience and hope” and “things” will attract the beautiful things in life. I never realized how much patience I really do have and how much I do rely upon “hope” to sort out the questions in my heart.

So I keep hoping and waiting, waiting and hoping. I will try to use this “little lesson” with so many other things in my life. I guess “patience is a virtue” after all.
