I don't know how you all do that "thing" where you put the blog's name and you just click on the name and the url does not show...I'm still learning.
When I found Michelle's Blog I was so excited because first...I love art work and second I love birds. I saw that she was having a drawing and like all the other drawings I entered but did not expect to win. I have never...never won anything. Some of you I have told that I will put a link to your blog because I want to remember to go back and say hi at least several times a week, and I know other people will be blessed by your blogs. Michelle I wanted to remember because her artwork is divine and I don't think I even told her I would put a link to her blog so I would get an extra ticket in the drawing. I am just in shock I won.
I shared with her that it is a "desire of my heart" to see a "Bluebird" in person and I have not as of this day.
I began to think (a dangerous thing for me) why it was so important to me to see a "Bluebird." Yes, they are very pretty and sweet...but there are lots of pretty and sweet things in nature...the Goldfinch, the Sparrow, the Redbird, the Baltimore Oriole, the precious Hummingbird, and Roses and Morning Glories, and Irises, and Tulips.....but I have seen all of those but not the "Bluebird!"
THE BLUEBIRD OF HAPPINESS....it dawned on me...kinda silly really, when I thought about it. It was the bird of HAPPINESS and I couldn't see it. Some people over the years even had them in their yard and they were not that joyous over it, and I would wonder what was the matter with them. You have the "Bluebird of Happiness" living in your yard and you are not happy. WHY?
Today it dawned on me...I may not have seen the Bluebird of Happiness but it is the Treasures in Life that are really the only "Bluebird of Happiness" I need.
My JESUS that loves me, Both my Parents and my husband's Parents are alive and I think they love us...lol...I have a husband that loves me...two beautiful children...my only precious Sister...my brother...Aunts...Uncles...In laws...Nieces and Nephews, I adore...Cousins especially my favorite, Suzie...dearest friends,my only sister Sherry, Robbi, Doris and Tawna...but not just them I have met some very special Bluebirds, since starting this humble blog. I love meeting people, I love to pray for people, and I like to encourage them by sharing God's word.
Dixie, at French Lique Texas, you were the first to befriend me here in the Blog World. I thank you so very much. You and everyone else are my Beautiful Bluebirds. I am so Blessed. I look so forward to meeting more Bluebirds. Happy! Happy! I pray you are all blessed with happiness today, and everyday...even on the days we have to "choose" to be Happy.
Please visit Michelle's blog , you will be so blessed. She paints the most beautiful birds that have the sweetest expressions on their faces. I think she paints them as God actually saw them on the very day he created them. Beautiful Work, Michelle. Thank You once again for drawing my name.
BE JOYFUL IN HOPE, PATIENCE IN AFFLICTION, FAITHFUL IN PRAYER. SHARE WITH GOD'S PEOPLE WHO ARE IN NEED. PRACTICE HOSPITALITY.
