I met the bluebird of happiness

008

Ok, so he’s not blue and doesn’t look happy, but he is
a bird and I believe in working with what you have. Too
many people spend too much time trying to find the one
thing that will make their life perfect and it’s usually
right in front of them.

It has been raining for hours but the picture was taken
yesterday. There is nothing wrong with that because the
rain helps the crops grow to feed us. Something about a
slow steady rain that can be relaxing.

Then I got to thinking that the rain could be God
crying over the state our country is in. He has been
removed from schools and banned from being mentioned in
some public places, yet He is here. I’m sure he is trying
to figure out what happened to us.

With the corruption in our government, our egotistical
nature and need of instant gratification coupled with
some among us mocking Him, He has to wonder where He
went wrong.

Regardless of what the media says we didn’t use to be
like this. We said the Pledge of Allegiance in school
including the “under God” part, we didn’t demand or want
other peoples money just because they are more
fortunate than us, and we sure didn’t tell whoppers on
the scale we hear daily today.

We used to go to war over lesser things than our current
corrupt government. Ralph Waldo Emerson said it best in
this excerpt from “Concord Hymn”.

By the rude bridge that arched the flood,
Their flag to April’s breeze unfurled,
Here once the embattled farmers stood,
And fired the shot heard round the world.

And yes, you could say a little birdie told me that.
