Tragedy has hit our country's midsection with horrific tornadoes the last couple of days but Moore OK was devastated today with a massive tornado up to 2 miles wide with winds in excess of 200 miles per hour. You may not know anyone personally that lives in the area but I ask you to pray for all those who have been affected It will take years to recover.
American Red Cross. They need all the contributions you can spare.

Update...Yesterday morning there were 4 eggs in the nest. Momma bird is always there. I try really hard to not scare her off. We've kept the door locked and using the front door instead. I hope we get to have some baby birds pretty soon. I don't know how long it takes for sparrow eggs to hatch but I guess we'll find out.

For weeks there's been a few birds hanging out on the wreath on our door. Last week they started to build a nest, gather leaves from the mesquite trees, twigs from the yard and some of Cassie's hair (she's shedding like nobody's business right now). Saturday morning there was a single egg in the nest. This photo was taken on Mother's Day...a pair of eggs. They are so tiny and pale blue in color with spots.
This is on the door we use all the time, but we decided to lock it so we don't disturb them too much and use the front door instead. This Monday morning there were three eggs and momma bird has been hanging out almost all day. It's right up against the window with the shade in it. It's closed but I can see her shadow. She's been busy gathering more material and building up around the eggs. I wonder if there will be more eggs? We'll have to watch to find out. I hope we get to see them hatch, watch them grow and fly away.
For the last 5 years,we've had a nest in the closet outside and have had baby birds hatch and grow up there but this is right at our dining room table. Can't wait to see what happens.

This week I'll be working at French Bouquet creating arrangements for Mother's Day. They are long days but it's nice to work hard for a week and pick up a check for the holiday. They just moved their shop so they aren't expecting a lot of walk in traffic but they have a buy wire service. So all you moms out there, have a great day, enjoy your family, flowers and gifts. I'll talk to you again next week.

Please take a few moments to pray for our nation. Pray that our leaders would be surrounded by wise council and that wise council would be used in making decisions for America.
Pray for our troops...that they may have the resources they need to do the jobs that must be done, pray for their safety, pray for their support.
Pray that our economy to improve, to put our citizens back to work, to reduce the number of people on public assistance, that they may work to support themselves.
Pray that we take pride in America, stand up for what is right, to bring America back to a place of morality and sensability that has been missing for a long time.
Pray for peace.
