Baby Birds

I don't know how she does it but every year a little grey bird builds a nest down in the post of Luke's basketball hoop. We see the parents working on the nest and then one day we hear baby birds. Then Mr John gets out the ladder and we watch as they grow from skinny naked babies to feathered birds. I'll have to get the bird book out to see if I can figure out what kind of bird it is.

Beautiful Weed

Mark and I have been working really hard trying to get the yard back in shape....and man do we have along way to go. Last weekend while putting up our FreeCycle .org fence I saw this beautiful little purple weed. I've been thinking about it all week. Thinking that God created something so beautiful out of a annoying little weed that is eating up our vinca vine. I keep thinking about Sarah Beth and the legacy she leaves behind. Such a beautiful soul. But cancer is such a horrible thing. It just continued to eat away at her day by day. Until God decided that it was time for her to have a new body, free of pain. Something horrible but with a beautiful result. Each year this little vining flower will show up in our vinca vine. Each day someone will read Sarah Beth's mission in life will live on thru her thoughtful words.
