Our backyard features a number of bird feeders. When there is time during a morning to sit with a cup of coffee, watching the birds swoop in and out, it’s both relaxing and entertaining. Since we’re coming to the close of summer there aren’t so many recently fledged young birds coming in and out of the yard. Earlier in the season it was often much easier to spot them.
There are hard lessons in life. Of course, we’ve all heard the phrase “blessing in disguise.” Think about it. How many times have you had a challenging experience of some kind, which lead to something very positive?
If you watch a local TV morning news report while you begin your day, you will hear a weather forecast. It is nearly certain the forecaster will refer to chance or probability in some fashion or another. “The rain will hold off this morning, but most of the area has a chance for scattered showers – maybe even a thunderstorm – sometime in the late afternoon.”
