Thankful Thursday


Oh, Lord, I am so thankful for.......
the beautiful birds that are out praising you every morning! When I have been out this week walking early in the morning, their sweet song has been such a blessing to me. I am reminded that Spring is here. Hope is alive. "Weeping may last all night, but joy comes in the morning." The winter has been long and I have missed the birds' beautiful music, but joy comes in the morning! There is a crispness, a "clean" smell in the air. I love that each bird sings its own song. As I was enjoying their music, I noticed several different bird calls and it occurred to me that they each have their own song. I thank you, God, that we each have OUR own song....May we always praise you like these sweet birds. Doesn't matter that anyone was listening. Beautiful.
"Sing joyfully to the LORD, you righteous; it is fitting for the upright to praise Him. Praise the LORD with the harp; make music to Him on the ten-stringed lyre. Sing to Him a new song; play skillfully, and shout for joy." -Psalm 33:1-3

What a beautiful post!! I love the Birds and their song. I'm sitting where I can see the Cherry tree and its blossoms. We have a birdhouse there where the Chickadees have nested two years. I saw them checking it out but they aren't nesting yet. I keep watching for activity. It is a blessing to me, seeing the plan God has for nature and learning the individual songs of the birds.

Isn't that Spring smell so neat? My girls have been coming in from playing outside smelling so Springlike. I can't wait until it is warm enough that I can open up the windows and let the freshness into the house.

I was thinking of the same verse this past week (Joy comes in the morning...). Spring is wonderful.

Do you know the song "Lifesong" by Casting Crowns - I don't know why, but your post just reminded me of that :) Yes - we all have our own song that we sing to the Lord ...

Thank you so much for sharing your grateful heart with us this past week (I know - I am very, very late)...

Blessings to you and yours.
