Ducks In The Swimming Pool
My chickens were going crazy this morning. I checked the
trees and the fences to see if Mr. Hawk was sitting
on the fence reading recipes out loud to my chickens.
No hawk. I finally gave it up and thought they were
having a Chicken Little Day and the sky must be falling.
I went in the kitchen to start laundry and to start making
my husband's lunch when I looked out and there was Mr.
and Mrs Mallard swimming around in the pool. Sorry, I
couldn't get a closer shot because they were already jumpy.
I ran upstairs to my daughters room, I said, " Hey, Em
there are ducks in the pool!! She said, oh good Mom."
I said don' you want to get up and see them?"
She said, "No Mom" while she rolled over and went back to sleep.
I ran back down stairs and my husband said they flew away. I wish they
would have stayed. I don't think though, the kids would be real wild about
swimming in the summer with a flock of duck swimming too.
It means spring is almost here, Mr. and Mrs Mallard were checking out
I am reminded of this today. " You will show me the path of life; In
your presence is fullness of joy; at Your right hand are pleasures forevermore."
"Think of the most beautiful place you know on earth. Think of the most wonderful
day you have ever had. Think of the person who loves you more than anybody else
loves you. And then multiply that by a million, and maybe that's the tiniest hint of
what heaven will be like."
"No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived what God has prepared
for those who love him."
1 Corinthians 2:9)
I am so happy because of ducks in the pool and spring blooming and the ground
warming up. Just think how great everyday will be in heaven.
Have a great Thursday,
