Amazing Grace, How Sweet the Sound!
Outside my window sings the sweetest little wren you've ever encountered. His song can be heard throughout our home throughout the day and I love to know he's near.
Interestingly, he used to live at our house but moved next door after I explained to the young mom and her children that what they were hearing each day (in my yard) was a wren. They went right out and bought a bigger better wren home and he moved in with them. I was a bit sad that he left the home we'd provided but then I realized he was coming back every single day to visit in the lilac bushes outside my window. Nature is full of wonders!
Well, I'd been thinking about blogging about my little wren when, yesterday, what should I find at a garage sale but this beautiful little figurine. I almost didn't buy it but picked it up only to discover that it was a music "box"...the theme "Amazing Grace"! Now you know what I was thinking, don't you? That old saying which I thoroughly believe to be true: There are no coincidences, only God working anonymously. He was at it again, don't you think!
