Just a Little Magic…

As most of you know, my Big Boy and I live in our 5th wheel trailer in Pennsylvania. It’s really been nice (well, other than the size of the bathtub!). Up to this point, we have been parked on the edge of a gravel parking lot, had a nice view, but still, were basically in the parking lot of the shop where he works. This weekend we moved the trailer, not even 100 yards, to a grassy spot, looking away from the shop, kind of out behind it all…and I am “Wow” amazed, at the change…I’ve found a little magic.

Am waiting right now. It’s 5:50 am. Just as the sun comes up, I’ll take my coffee cup outside and experience it. I’ll get back with you when I’m done……

Wow, I’m living in a bird sanctuary!  It is absolutely the coolest.  We’re in a spot with nothing between us and the creek but grass and trees…and in the morning, when the sun comes up, the birds wake up. 

It’s crazy, I’ve gotta catch it just as the sun comes up.  If it’s too dark, I get chirping crickets, but as the sun comes up…wild!   It’s beautiful, it’s amazing, it’s peaceful, and I close my eyes and listen, just listen, and think “this must be what heaven sounds like”.   It’s magic, and I’m awed.  I’m reminded of this song:


Try it sometime.  Get up early, go outside and listen.  And know, that He’s watching you.


About 49andcounting

Hi! I'm a mom, wife, grammy, sister, friend at that ALMOST 50 age!! (Okay, since I started this a few years ago...well, add a bit to 49andcounting!) How the heck did I get here so fast?!? I love, love, love- my girls, antiques, rural America, history, Jesus, junkin,the lake and my Big Boy...not particularly in that order. It's about time I change this profile a bit. After a year or living in our 5th wheel in beautiful Pennsylvania, My Big Boy and I are back to the Kansas Prairies. And there's just nothing like "Home Sweet Home". Hitting the Big 50 has its own unique, well...let's say...blessings :) So come along, laugh with me...cry with me...praise God with me...and let's do this 49andcounting thing, together!
