While having breakfast this morning, I noticed a male and female bluebird outside the kitchen window. They perched on the box that's set up outside my kitchen window, then the male went inside, followed by the female. They are obviously building a nest. They flew away, then a short while later, the female returned, with a small "beak-full" of leaves in her mouth.
She went into the box, where the male was already working, and deposited the leaves. Afterward, she rested with the male on the water container before flying away. At the same time, a squirrel was busy burying nuts for the winter.
Lesson: God presents unexpected joy!
