Dark-eyed Junco - Peaceful Harmony


Each day, awakening, are we asked to paint the sky blue? Need we coax the sun to rise or flowers to bloom? Need we teach birds to sing, or children to laugh, or lovers to kiss? No, though we think the world imperfect, it surrounds us each day with its perfections. We are asked only to appreciate them, and to show appreciation by living in peaceful harmony amidst them. The Creator does not ask that we create a perfect world; He asks that we celebrate it.

Beautiful! We had a dusting of snow here yesterday. What does he have in his beak? -- a seed, a bug?

I can see it! We had snow here yesterday. It only stuck in the cold, shady places. This morning, there is a frost and it's a beautiful day.

Love that little bird... we have some here... one built a nest and laid eggs this Spring. Unfortunately, nature intervened...but the birds are still sweet, cute and lovely!
