As I write this, I am sitting outside trying to compose a sermon for this Sunday. The gospel reading is about Mary and Martha and being too busy to notice what is important.
As if to reinforce the lesson, three fledgling blue jays have come to my pond. They surprised me because the first landed on a chair not more than three feet from where I was sitting. Then they proceeded to fly around, sometimes flying under the patio umbrella! It was as if they didn't know that people were something to be afraid of.
They were also landing on the rocks of the pond and drinking from the waterfalls.
I have never seen a fledgling blue jay, let alone one that close!
I guess it was time to stop being busy and notice what is important!
