Maybe you got up this morning and felt like I did. So many
things to do! Everything seemed equally urgent. But as I passed by my kitchen
window, I paused to look at the birds outside. They seemed to be playing under
the trees. And, the bees buzzed the flowers. The birds and bees coexisted peacefully.
God’s creation––organized, peaceful, and beautiful.
·The birds weren’t in a hurry or worried about
what to eat or drink; God sends them springs of water from the hills and takes
care of them. Won’t He take care of us and our stressful lives also?
·The Queen Bee possesses a stinger, but she
doesn’t use it. Her role is to fill the hive with eggs. She lives peacefully
within the hive with other bees. The Queen Bee fulfills God’s purpose and
enjoys peace with no need to sting. When we fill God’s role for us, we live in
peace. We possess Queen Bee Beauty. And, that's your beauty tip for the day––you're welcome!
·Are you peacefully springing along today or
drowning under the weight of obligations?
When we pause to pray and worship God, we feel His
presence and experience His peace springing through our soul. “He sendeth the
springs into the valley,” (Psalm 104:10 KJV).

When Easter nears, I think of Easter baskets and how to
communicate the Easter story to little ones. God tells us to think like
children. “Truly I tell
you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven” (Matthew 18:3 NIV).
my children’s books, Really Rare Rabbits,
the little rabbits hear someone teaching about Jesus.
They listen. They press
their ears to the window to hear more. As adults, are we too busy to listen to
we lean our elbows on heavily windowsills and press our ears to God’s heavenly window and listen to His voice or have we
come away from the God’s window and only hear the world’s noise?
a child can hear the story of the cross and believe. It’s a simple message of
love. Jesus came to earth to die for all that we might live with Him in heaven
for eternity––if we only believe. Easter is a time of renewal and reflection. Let’s reflect on all Christ did for us on the cross and determine to press our ears to His window and listen to His voice on Easter morning and always––with our ears pressed like the little rabbits.
