Shhhh don't tell anyone I have snuck away for a few minutes. When I was unpacking I found my art supplies, I know I should be unpacking but I had to check to make sure they all still work and were not broken.They seem to be working fine but maybe I should draw one more picture to be sure.
The Sparrow
Author Unknown
Glad to see you, little bird;
'Twas your little chirp I heard:
What did you intend to say?
"Give me something this cold day"?

That I will, and plenty, too;
All the crumbs I saved for you.
Don't be frightened--here's a treat:
I will wait and see you eat.

Shocking tales I hear of you;
Chirp, and tell me, are they true?
Robbing all the summer long;
Don't you think it very wrong?

Thomas says you steal his wheat;
John complains, his plums you eat--
Choose the ripest for your share,
Never asking whose they are.

But I will not try to know
What you did so long ago:
There's your breakfast, eat away;
Come to see me every day.

Matthew 10:31
So don't be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.


  1. Your birds are very sweet! It's good to take a little break now and then whilst unpacking, to savor the little treasures as they are brought out again! Enjoy!

  2. Dear Heather,

    I love the poem and drawing~I've been sneaking in some drawing lately, too. It's so therapeutic! I hope that I'll be able to have my art supplies neatly organized like you some day, in the far. . .off. . .future. .. :). Right now they're public property!



  3. How wonderful that you were able to find them!

    It is such a great treat to sit back and enjoy a quiet time among the chaos of boxes...upon boxes...upon boxes.



Thanks For leaving your thoughts...Have a blessed day!
