Think on These Things #19 ~ nesting

I watched as a pair of sparrows flitted about this lantern on the patio and wasn't surprised when I saw a couple of days later they had built a nest atop the candle in the holder.  I think she found a perfect home for her young.

by Emily Dickinson   
Hope is the thing with feathers 
That perches in the soul, 
And sings the tune--without the words, 
And never stops at all,
And sweetest in the gale is heard; 
And sore must be the storm 
That could abash the little bird 
That kept so many warm.
I've heard it in the chillest land, 
And on the strangest sea; 
Yet, never, in extremity, 
It asked a crumb of me.
Has God impressed on your heart something special this week?
Was there a Scripture verse, a song, a quote, a poem or an encouraging word that came your way and caused you to pause.
I'd love for you to share.

 With a Grateful Prayer and a Thankful Heart

As we get older, it seems we get busier and busier.  Our days have been filled with weddings, showers, graduations, parties, birthdays and get-togethers.  Nary a week goes by that we don't have an opportunity to gather and celebrate life and milestones.
Our oldest grandson, Jared, graduated Thursday night from Middle School and is heading to high school in September
