Welcome to Jean’s Bird House!
As a retired nurse, part-time church secretary, wife, mom and grandmother, I’ve been provided with countless situations and circumstances where I have learned a lot of life’s lessons. My blogs are pieces and parts of it all. Some silly, some thought provoking, but hopefully all encouraging, helpful, and even some fun.
As I develop our conversations on this site it is my hope that you will see, as I have, how our lives can be filled with experiences that are teachable moments and valuable, to say the least.
The Bird House, like most, is a home that has been and still is, at times, full of activities, situations and circumstances (good and bad). In each one there have been lessons to learn and memories made. It is a place where children and grandchildren come and go and come back again. A place where friends and strangers have been welcomed. Where some come for a season and then are gone, and some remained becoming close friends, even family. But none have come by coincidence but by the divine providence of God. Each one providing opportunities for learning, blessings and being blessed, although we did not always recognized them at the time.
This house has seen laughter and tears; struggles and times of contentment; victories and defeats. We have worked through many of life’s challenges together and shared in many of life’s blessings.
I can tell you, this has not always been my attitude and because of that I have probably missed some real opportunities to bless others and be blessed. But, as I yield to my heavenly Father’s promptings (sometimes more slowly than others) and I serve, in obedience, those He brings to the Bird House, biologically or selectively, I find there will always be blessings in spite of and even in the midst of the most difficult circumstances. And I am grateful for each and every one!
So I am hoping you will come along and learn with me, laugh with me, cry with me, and even commiserate with me at times.
Come and join in those blessings!
