It was cloudy when we walked on the trail close to our house the other day. One mile up and one mile back. Not too many other folks were out walking yet but we did spot an interesting ‘critter’ slowly making his way across the paved pathway and into the underbrush. We’re still not sure ‘what’ he was. It was quiet except for the sound of the interstate close by and the sounds of the birds. At one point I just listened. It was then I realized I was hearing a mockingbird sounding off his chants. I couldn’t see him but I certainly could hear him, and even if he did copy his compatriots, he still sounded happy and cheerful. He was doing what he was meant to do. Share forth his song for others to enjoy. It’s already May but let’s not forget to share our song of God’s love and grace with those we meet. Enjoy May!
(By the way, the picture was from St. Petersburg Beach, and it’s definitely not a mockingbird )
