Our Little Sanctuary



In our lilac bushes we have what we call a sanctuary..which I have to clean out this spring .
The story goes, I wanted a place for all of us to sit and meditate, when we felt like doing so..So my husband, put a large stone for each one of us and took two branches and made a cross..as you can see, nothing fancy, just tied with twine..My oldest daughter was cutting the lawn at the time. My husband no sooner put the cross in place, when our daughter yelled, "Dad there is a bird here that won't get out of the way"...The bird wasn't hurt and not a pet, a wild bird..He stayed with us for the weekend. Every time the girls went outside, there he was.They would feed him bugs, didn't like seed..they called him Sanctuary..It was interesting the bird appeared at the same time the cross went up..We always considered the little bird our gift and were thankful for it visiting us all weekend. Something so small, bought so much joy..

Till next time, keep looking up..
