The Sky is Falling

I was pretty quiet on our early morning walk today. PR asked, "What's the matter?" My answer: "The world is in such a mess."

After walking a few more minutes in silence, I looked down and noticed that a bird had made a "deposit" on the front of my shirt. "Oh, boy", I thought. "That really helps my mood." PR mused, "I wonder if birds can see you coming, and do that on purpose..." As I started to imagine birds conducting contests in the treetops, PR interrupted my thoughts:
"Did you see me scramble out of bed this morning?"
"Well, I did see you sit up, wide-eyed, with one hand pointing upward."
"I was dreaming about eternity again. And feeling scared..."
"Scared?"
"Yeah, there's so much to be done, and not much time left."

Kinda puts a little birdie-doo into perspective.

    I do a lot of walking. When you say "early morning," what do you mean?

    I hope that dream didn't scare PR too badly. I know it caught his attention.
    We just finished studying Job. His friend Elihu told Job "For God may speak in one way, or in another, Yet man does not perceive it...In a dream, in a vision of the night,..."
    And yes, those birds practice, just like little boys practice their spitting.

    Well that's just neat.
    Not the bird doody part.
    But maybe that was just part of the lesson to learn....

    PR sounds amazing..

    Oklahoma, where the wind comes crashing down the plain, and the birdies stay so far away cause they know we all carry GUNS!!!!
