The Triplets

Leave a comment

We have “triplets” in our yard.  They are squirrels that I believe have trained at a far away circus over the winter.  They showed up late spring/early summer with skills I only thought possible in a circus setting.

We have had a slinky (toy) on our bird feeder poles for two years now.  What had been a wonderful deterrent for squirrels now has proven to be a simple springboard for their acrobatic talents.

The birds are no longer safe.  So, we had to come up with something else.

I had an old metal bird cage that we hung from a tree in our yard. We wired all the doors open and set corn in the bottom.  We thought we could all coexist in beautiful harmony.IMG_0693

The squirrels would be happy, have a way in and out, and leave the bird feeders alone.

Alas, it was not to be.

The squirrels would eat from the birdcage, finish it all, and make their way to the feeders.  They even began flying across from the far away branches.  Can you say… “flying squirrels?”

Actually, they have been quite funny to watch.  They would sit in the cage’s bottom and if we would clap or yell, they would get flustered and forget about their way out.  They had three exits to choose from, and yet, they often panicked.

Just like us.

The Heavenly Father provides for us, and we still flail around like we don’t know what to do.  

Jesus is who we turn to.  Jesus is our way, He is our provision.  

Life is crazy right now..personally, nationally, globally.  Sometimes I am like those squirrels…a bunch of twirling and panic when all the while Jesus is my provision.

Let Christ be yours.

I love Jesus. If I say nothing else, that is enough. But for those curiosity seekers, I am a 59 year old former special education teacher, current part time CCM Radio Announcer and author... who is married to her high school sweetheart. We have been together for 43 years, married 40 of those years! We have raised two sons, who are now married, have jobs and mortgages. AND...we became grandparents to a beautiful baby girl in 2018!! We also have our furry son, a West Highland Terrier. My heart's desire is to encourage people in their daily life. I believe that the Father speaks to us all the time, sometimes I have been too busy to listen. Even during times of trials and troubles, He is ever present. ~Be Encouraged Today~
