When a squirrel shows up, it usually has to do with balance. Are we working too hard and not taking time to play? Are we taking more than we are giving? If so, find ways to gather and to gift. Be prepared is also the message the squirrel brings.
Most of this week, a little squirrel has been crossing my path. Our bird feeder had been empty for several months so as not to tame the sandhill cranes. Now that the family has moved on, yesterday I watched a hungry little squirrel scale the pole to the feeder hoping for a crumb. He left, empty-handed.
With compassion, the feeder was once again filled with yellow corn kernels and sunflower seeds. But the full house had no activity until early this morning.
What fun to see that rascally squirrel share breakfast with a bright red cardinal. There's a wonderful saying, "When a cardinal appears an angel is near." Cardinals bring a message to add more color to our lives, and to remember that everything we do is important.
The topper of the morning came with the arrival of two young wild turkeys grazing in the pasture next door. A welcoming sign of abundance and thanksgiving. God loves you.
Enjoy your day with the Angels, and expect the wonderful things of God to come to you today.
Love and joyful blessings,
