As we anticipate the first holiday weekend of the Summer Holiday Trilogy, those being Memorial Day, The 4th of July, and Labor Day, I am struck by the joy and sadness these holidays represent. In fact, they are a celebration of life for those who gave and we who have received.
Joy comes in many forms.
And this day has the potential of being just as grand as celebrating the beauty in all that surrounds me.
I must be open to it!
Shelter from the rain
Waiting to feel the warm sun
Wrapped among the leaves
She awaits her fulfillment
Bursting forth in bloom
Wishing all a grand weekend of family, friends, food, and fun!!! OH! Don't forget, it's time for the INDY 500!!!
Thanks be to God!!!
Today I join Meri for Share the Joy Thursday. For I believe we need to find it in my life every day no matter the realities in which we live. God is Good in so many ways even in times of trial.
Please visit Rebecca at recuerda mi corazonfor Haiku My Heart. There is always more beautiful words there to enchant and encourage!!!
I'm also joining Lou Ceel at Haiku Friday. Come play with words. It's such a joy!!!
This was a journey. I discovered this bird nest last Fall. It was in a tree outside one of the windows where I work. I so enjoyed watching the changes as they took place. I could hardly wait until Spring when I just knew Mama would arrive to set up housekeeping. Much to my chagrin Mother Nature takes care of her own and so I discovered that She decorated and camouflaged the wee nest so that I could not photograph Mama and her brood. I've seen her nesting, but only in the shadows. It's been quite an adventure!
