When possible, I try to introduce little surprises or a fun way of looking at something. My kids may call out, "Mom, come and look!" and we enjoy a sunset together....or a bunny in the backyard....or one of their sibling's fun activities in the backyard.
I have tried to help my family enjoy those little things.....and I am convinced that God puts many of those little things out there for us to enjoy.....if we take the time to look...............
These bluebirds were so funny.....the birdbath was iced over and they slid on the top.....it was lots of fun watching them. :)
They look frozen to the ice, but they aren't - they just skated a bit, then flew off and came back to do
|Poor thing - no water....only ice.|
These bluebirds were in the woods when the kids and I were on a hike. We all enjoy hiking and exploring.....through the woods or other places. What a treat to see bluebirds in the winter.
This is another one of the birds with the frozen birdbath.....they kept flying around here and we enjoyed watching them. Shortly after this, my dad went out to chip the ice away and add fresh water - he takes care of his wild birds.
These are simple things.....they look fun because we took the time to look and enjoy. The same can be said for seeing leaves falling in the fall, or snow coming down, or a caterpillar moving along. There are treasures to be discovered all over the place. I want to continue teaching my children to look for them.....and to thank God for many things. I want us to be thankful people, not complainers.
"A merry heart doeth good like a medicine, but a broken spirit drieth the bones." Proverbs 17:22
Consider looking for treasures in your own world....and teach others to do the same. Have a great day and thank you for joining me. :)
