A vibrant pair of bluebirds is busily building a nest in our Texas Nextbox today. It's especially designed to allow ventilation during the hot Texas summer weather, and it's been inhabited by a nesting pair through July in past years.
Listening to the falling water in our bird fountain and watching the hummingbirds at their feeder and on Coral Honeysuckle vines growing up the front porch, I'm feeling blessed with Shalom Bayit - peace of the home - in and around our home this spring. The sounds and sights are healing, which makes me think about Rosh Chodesh Iyar beginning this Saturday 5/4/19 at sunset.
In Sarah Yehudit Schneider's Iyar article linked above she explains that learning to sit back and watch our own thoughts, "... can dissolve deeply engrained patterns at their root. It is extremely potent and cost efficient. It takes minimal effort and yields bountiful results. And, it is the special work of this month."
I am eager to explore this idea, for my own healing and for my friends and family as well.
