Signs of Hope...

...appear at any given time!

I made a commitment to myself yesterday
 and to my surprise this morning presented me
with the sign that I have been looking for.
These sweet birds sat outside my kitchen windows
and offered me a chance to just watch them relax. 
There was something so peaceful about them as they sat perched on my elm tree. 
It didn't last too long and soon they flew back to their protective nests in the evergreens.
 But, for a short while they just enjoyed their freedom.
One of our Parish Priest said
 "to spend 15 minutes in nature everyday is to spend 15 minutes alone with God"
There is so much truth in that statement.
I am leaving my protective nest a little more often these days and I have to say it feels good.

It is so relaxing to take time to see God's beauty all around. We just need to take the time.

Wishing you a wonderful 2011.
