Hair Here! 

“Summertime and the livin’ is easy…” One of my favorite songs says it all. It’s hot pretty much everywhere, especially in Texas. Too hot to do much more than take it easy. My hammock beckons on sultry summer afternoons. Lounging there, I watch the wild birds flitting about, enjoying a rainbow of sparkling water droplets spraying over their bird bath. My worries melt away as I remember Matthew 6:26: “Look at the birds of the air: they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they?” There is so much joy in sharing what I have with these little feathered folk who flock to my bird feeders every morning and sing down the sun every evening. Sometimes, as in this photo by taken by Tina Andrews, I get a special gift that fills my heart with delight. Like me, Tina has long hair that sometimes gets away from her. She found this bird nest on her lawn and realized the center was her own soft, shining hair made into baby bird bedding. Now, everytime we clean loose hairs from our combs and brushes and toss them outside, we make living easier for our beautiful wild birds.
