OH, WHAT A SHOW!
The bees LOVE THEM!! When I think of "drowsy" bees I think of BUMBLEBEES.
BUZZ, BUZZ, BUZZ... slow and steady wins the race (or in this case, pollinates the flowers). They seem so... lazy? yet they are on a life or death mission that is planted deep in their soul. Gather up all the SWEET STUFF they can before the sun goes down. Sounds good? Yep.
I am also showing a teensy weensy peek at my back porch, but right now it is COVERED in bird seed, pollen and Tulip Poplar blooms. After they quit falling I have to pressure wash it all and switch from regular bird feeders to the hummingbird feeder. I haven't seen any yet, but they have been looking for their SWEET STUFF as early as March in the past. I'll be watching for them!
I think as a Christian I am called to more than JUST this (more on that in another post), but I think the Lord gave us all the beauty in this world to ENJOY. His glory is everywhere and sometimes I feel like a bumblebee trying to gather all the SWEET STUFF I can before my sun goes down. With the creation story in Genesis 1, the adornment of the Tabernacle by Moses in Exodus 25-30, the building of Solomon's Temple for the Lord in 1st Kings 6 it is clear that God loves beauty. Gather some SWEET STUFF of God EVERYDAY!
