Planting Seeds

"Seeds of grace are being planted in the fertile soil of my soul."

Yesterday I enjoyed the arrival of a rather large community of Robins as they made their journey south.  They were coasting into their landing on a field nearby my home.  I have been hearing the trumpeting of geese for weeks as they fly high above.
Just before the arrival of Spring I notice the return passage of these same two birds and know that they herald the promise of warmer days ahead, giving me extra incentive to hang in there just a little longer for the returning days of Spring.
Years ago I read a passage about birds singing in the morning.  Their chorus fills the air with morning announcements and communal song and encouragement for the grass, flowers, and trees to awaken from their winter's rest.
Maybe that will be a good way to express gratitude for each day that I get to wake up and experience new opportunities, with a song.  I will remember to express my gratitude in song today to encourage my soul, spirit, and heart to all the wonder it beholds.

    1. My morning song when I remember to sing is Barbra Streisand's ON A CLEAR DAY; I enjoyed the movie also.

  2. autumn is my favorite season, but the birds returning in spring lifts my heart high. They were very scarce this year which is quite troubling

    1. They have been later to head south this year. I wonder if they are adjusting to global warming and staying North longer. The Sand Cranes are due so pass through this week, much harder to catch a glimpse.
