Hello readers – It is #twosday and my last Two for Tuesday post was in May.
So lets two this.
Thanks to A Pondering Mind…
Thanks for sharing this Robert Gibbings Quote, Derrick.
Did you catch that first part of the quote?
“For every bird that is taken by a hawk, there a hundred still singing in the trees”

These are the birds for our birdbath, what do you think? jk
My birdbath does not really have visitors (that I know of – still waiting for them to discover it) – And so these next images brought a smile (linked to Trent’s weekly smile ) here
Some favorite birdbath photos from this last week:

This is connected to PULL UP A SEAT ( week 30 here )- (I was stopped at a red light so this photo was NOT taken while driving – k). I also chose this shot because we are winding down Life of B’s month of blues – and that is some bright blue jacket – eh?
This photo was right before the men in the previous photo. A blue Tundra and an old black truck (and two uncovered windows to the right). Do you see the truck to the right? I drive by this truck a handful of times during the year. Sometimes there are hot water tanks, fridges, old stoves, and pieces of scrap metal back there. In this shot it is not that full – but every time I See the items in that truck it always makes me stop and feel grateful for what I have. I imagine this hard-working person, who found his niche in recycling, and it humbles me. Also…. I see the scrappy, discarded stuff, that was once new and shiny, and I feel a release from possessions. “Stuff” sure comes and goes. I remember when John Ortberg said that when the game is over, “It all goes back in the box. You don’t get to keep one token, one chip, one game card. In the end, the spoils of the game add up to nothing.” And at Gallivance blog this month ( here ), they have been chatting about simplifying to get more out of life; we shared the quote about how “there are no U-Haul’s in a graveyard.” It’s always a good idea to assess and see if we are gripping possessions with a tight fist? are we holding “stuff” loosely? So yeah, I like driving by that truck. Good for my outlook.

Have a great day – and dare I say it – hope it is doubly good?
