The ordinary arts we practice every day at home are of more importance to the soul than their simplicity might suggest ~ Sir Thomas Moore ~

Ensconced ...

 The temps have dropped drastically these past few days
 
a mixture of wind & rain & hail
 
hats & gloves needed on walks with Archer
most of the garden furniture has been washed & stored for another year
 
won't be long and we will be hanging Christmas lights and stringing garlands on the picket fence :-}
 
sitting at the kitchen table, warming up with a fresh out of the oven cinnamon bun
and mug of tea, I watched the Sparrows through the window ...
 
the cool weather has them at the feeders for longer stretches of time ...
 
I love watching their quirky little ways ... each one is special & unique ♥
 
 oh how I love my Sparrows ...
 
such a source of inspiration
comfort & joy ...
 
 a few watercolours  from Sparrow Studio in the form of a new painting
'Nests of wild things
in her hair'
 ♥
 
my favourite part comes next ...
adding in all the detail
little legs, feet & feathers :-}
 
Happy is the person
who not only sings,
but feels
God's eye
is on the Sparrow,
and knows
He watches over me.
To be simply
ensconced
in God
is true joy.

Love your sparrows, Deb! It's time to get our bird feeders out. One of our favourite past times is watching the birds that visit the feeder. xo
