FRONT PORCH FELLOWSHIP – ALL THE BIRDS and HIDDEN TREASURES
I love my office. Or should I say my little nest. ‘Cause I don’t have a desk, I sit on the love seat with my stuff spread out around me, all within (relatively) easy reach.
Notes on who’s who in my novel? Right here by my side. Blog schedule for the year? Right under the ring binder of notes for the novel. (and on my Excel spreadsheet)
Okay, so office is a loose term but it works for me.
What I particularly love is my view out the front door—which is open when at all reasonable. You know, unless it’s just too cold or the afternoon sun is bearing down—or when I go to bed.
And I’ve noticed something on in the wood of the porch railing. A funny sort of knot that looks like a hummingbird.
(kinda like this—I forgot to snap the pic and it’s dark now… )
As I was looking at it today, Father whispered to me that the “bird” was hidden within that wood, that tree trunk all along, and nobody ever saw it till it was positioned just as it is outside my door. Just for me.
Hidden. A little quirky treasure. A delightful image for me because I love birds so much.
And as only Father can arrange it, I was at Hobby Lobby today with my friend, looking at framing options for one of her paintings. (She’s a very gifted artist.) And the piece that she’s looking to frame, says, “Diamond in the rough, Hidden in The Rock.”
He is our Rock. And we are hidden in Him. And we are a precious in His sight, a jewel of inestimable worth. Hidden in Him.
Today, as we wrap up the month of February and my blitz of feathers, my flock of robins—Robin Hendzel Bunting, Robin Johns Grant, Robin Patchen, Robin Bayne, Robin Caroll, Robin Lee Hatcher—and all my wonderful guest posts on birds—Merrillee Whren, C. Kevin Thompson, Joy Dekok, Jane Lebak (you won’t want to miss Jane’s post tomorrow, it’s hilarious)—I thought about all the gifts Father has given us.
Today it’s as simple as all my friends who contributed to my birthday month. Such a small thing but such a treasure to me.
And if I wasn’t looking, I’d never have seen it.
