Bombs Away!


Yesterday I went up into the woods behind our house and sat on the tree fort our kids used to play on when they were young.  I needed to get away to confirm and think about something that had been said… something hurtful.  As I sat, I looked up and blinked away the tears to see this tiny heart in the bark of the tree.  God so often seems to come through and remind me that I am loved when I least expect it but need it most.

I wasn’t able to get a picture of the heart then, because I didn’t have my camera with me, and I had a commitment to which I had to attend.  But I went back this morning to capture the expression of God’s love to me.

As I was trying to get a good clear shot, I heard a squirrel scurrying and chattering in the branches above.  All of a sudden, I saw something fall and heard a thump.  I didn’t really think much of it until I saw another something fall, and I realized it was a pine cone.  “Hey!  Are you trying to hit me?” I called up into the tree.  The squirrel chattered again and another pine cone fell, and then another right behind me.  I felt the whoosh, it was so close!  “Hey!  Ok, I get the hint!  I’m almost done.  Just one more shot.”

The squirrel chattered again.  I love God’s sense of humor.  Thank you, Lord, for making me smile.
