Blessings. 2 kinds.
Because of no rain, this has been the summer of NO WEEDS. I was doing the Side Garden the other afternoon and was hot and worn out........and a hummingbird came a flying right around me. It wasn't like the ones I normally see. I was standing right in front of the empty hummingbird feeder........I felt really bad. I fixed it up and hope the hummers will forgive me.
The other day I left a comment on a blog saying I'd like it to rain....and that I'd like to see a hummingbird in my garden.
It's obvious that I can't make it rain...........but I could at least keep the hummer feeder filled up.
I wanted a sweet little hummer to fly through my garden, but there was nothing in my garden to attract one. You want a lower electricity bill, but keep your A.C. on 65. You want a flower garden but plant no seeds. You want line dried sheets to sleep on, but you don't have a clothes line. You want sweet peace in your home.....but all you do is drip.
Some things just do NOT drop out of the sky. Some blessings we enjoy come from our own labor. Some things are cause and effect.
Some are not, and I'm thankful for those things.
(I have seen husbands for young ladies drop out of the sky........and all the while they're thinking their bride fell out of the sky! )
I'm thankful for both..........the rainbow kind of blessings............and the fruit from an effort made............with a package of seeds or a broom!
