Every Friday, I have to muster up all of my adulting skills and mow the huge corner lot that our home sits on. Chicagoland summers are hot and humid and it’s one of my least favorite chores on my weekly summer to do list. It’s truly a Labor of Love.
I. Literally. Hate. It.
After finishing my dreaded chore, I usually sit on the step and gaze at my completed handiwork. I’ve noticed that someone else also benefits from my labor of love. Taking advantage of the shortly cut grass, our friendly neighborhood American Robins meticulously ‘hunt and peck’ in the lawn looking for a tasty morsels in the form of worms. Since the grass is shorter, the worms are easier to see and pull out with their beaks. Little did I know that I was helping my feathered friends with their daily nutritional needs.
Every day, we have that same opportunity to ‘walk the lawn’ so to speak, crack open His Holy Word and nourish our heart and soul with words spoken from the throne room. All we have to do is dig in, hunt and peck, and look for those tasty morsels to apply it to our heart and lives.
My orange breasted friends know exactly where they need to be for their sustenance. And they show up.
Lovely Sisters, Let’s challenge ourselves to be like those robins… to know to who we must turn to, to know where to go, to know what our sustenance is and dig in to the Promises of God.
The robins are hungry and I must mow! I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
Embrace the Lovely!
