A bird in the hand

I forgot to mention that I was able to incorporate the incredible picture of the little bird in my hand into my new theme. Holding that little bird was a moment of grace. Not my grace, but the grace of God who blesses, forms and informs my life. On December 7th when that event occurred it was exactly the kind of reassurance I needed. Earlier in the week I had been part of the funeral of my long time friend Paul and when that little bird landed in my hand it was just as if Paul and God were reassuring me of his contentment in his new life.

I wanted to celebrate that event and the blessings in my life by putting it where it is. It’s a tangible reminder of the grace of God in my life. Peace.
