Not Quick on the Uptake. (or Intake!)

blue jay
I recently switched bird seed to one with no shells. The color is beige, no more black sunflower seeds. All nut meats! With a few peanuts and other grains and a few raisins or currants mixed in. I thought that the sparrows could sit there and not rake as much and I wouldn’t have as messy a porch. The first day I only had one visitor. A blue jay who was delighted. No sparrows…they all sat in the tree or fed off of the old seeds on the ground. The next day I had blue jays and nuthatches. They loved those seeds! I thought that maybe the color is so different that the sparrows think that the feeder is empty.  Wrong!  It has been several days now and the sparrows are figuring out that this seed is better!  They are adapting now.  Just like me…resistant to change, sticking with the old ways, refusing to try new methods.   Sometimes I am slow on the uptake.  I don’t get a joke right away sometimes.  I usually will turn the wrong way if I am in new terrain.  But, the more I trust in God, the better my compass.  I wandered around North Little Rock looking for a Radio Shack using the GPS and couldn’t figure out the directions and so I pulled into the closest parking lot and something inside said to look to the right and there it was!  That was God.  The King of the coincidence!  And I am thankful!  As are the little growing flock of sparrows at the feeder.  As a side note, several of my church family are having serious health problems, especially Wes Wilson so please pray for healing and that he can find the right treatment and doctors.  Another one may have cancer and a few have heart problems.  I pray for healing now!  Please bless each other by being a nice person today.  It takes no more time to say something politely rather than a harsh request or response.  And I am the Queen of Sharps sometimes!  Try and have a positive life, y’all, we are so blessed to be here when so many in Syria are fleeing for their lives!  May God help them as well!  Peace.
