Fat Little Critters, BOTD

There are several of us in  my neighborhood who feed the birds. And I look down at the sparrows on the ground and they are fat little critter.

And it hasn’t been that cold yet for them to grow their down for warmth, or are they getting ready for what they know is coming and we don’t. My yard really is a perfect place for them as they can live in the cedar trees on the edge of the property, zip to the feeders, then zip back into the trees. And they are noisy little critters as well inside those trees.

But I enjoy them.  Even when I get fussed at because the feeder is empty. They will peck on the window.

The beauty of nature even in your own back yard is an amazing show how everything works together for the good of creation. Even if we get involved to play with nature by feeding the birds. There is a peace about being part of it and playing with its beauty. Even animals understand it and can feel it.

So come along and play and show the kindness God intended for His creation.

Its ALIVE, Who’da Thunk

The resilience of nature is truly amazing. A week or so ago I posted the demise of my banana tree left alone for 5 minutes with my new puppy. Lesson learned and tree was moved to the no puppy zone, aka my bedroom.

Damaged but not killed

They are a pretty hardy plants, after all they survive hurricanes, so I was hopefully. Today circumstance were perfect to sneak in a Sunday afternoon nap, and it was fabulous. But right as I got comfy my eye caught this…

A new leaf coming out of torn debris

I was so excited and told you that if I saw it reviving, I would post its picture. It lives. And as I lay there looking at it, I asked myself again “wonder how tall it is going to get”, after all the ceiling is only so high.

Nature is an amazing thing when you think about it. Think about ancient civilizations now gone and nature reclaiming the land. God’s amazing creation.

While thinking about the amazing attributes of nature, remember the amazing attributes of mankind. We too can be resilient in hard times and with God’s help we are an amazing creature. Remember to reflect the love in you from God to those around you to make His kindness radiate to others.

A Reflection of My Home

Good afternoon. I do apologize in advance for today’s tour of my home in reflection as when my home moves periodically, as it has a mind of its own apparently with the help of a human, this movement tends to break sections of my home down. No major damage I guess as I will just rebuild again tonight when things are quiet.

Home and Reflection

My brother George lives on the other side of the moving mountain and usually makes a larger home. He has brighter opportunities for food as he gets more illumination  from the street light. However his home gets broken more as that is the side of the mountain the human gets in and out of.

When my home is fresh and full, it is quite stunning in reflection and makes it a joy to watch as the breeze moves it slightly creating a amusement ride effect if you stare at it too long.

If you happen to come by my home and wish to say Hi, knock on the shinny thing and if I am not busy, I will come out to visit.

Oh, and by the way, my name is Georgette. And remember all things enjoy kindness so remember to be kind.

The Quiet of Fog

The bat-cave of my street

Some think fog eerie but it is it’s peace that I feel

It shrouds all things that it touches, making it look unreal

The early morning fog comes but usually burns by noon

The evening fog can enter and bring on a sense of doom

I prefer the daytime fog brought on by changing seasons

It’s calmness gives off a quietness for no apparent reason

When fog comes in surrounding the branch as it glistens

Nature seems to come to a stop and watch fast while it listens

Beauty in life can be read in nature from where ever you stand

As the peace of fog moves quietly over the surface of land

Remember in all that you do to share the kindness that has been shown to you. And if you feel kindness has not been shown then be the first to spread it around and be kind.
