If A Bird Can Sing After A Storm, Why Can't We?

Inspirational thoughts for 6/24/19

by Patricia Feager



After the 4th stormy weekend, I gave thanks for being safe. While I was in Fort Worth I noticed the most unusual bird that seemed to come out of nowhere. Dressed in purple, black, and white feathers with the color blue around the eyes I stood in wonder looking at this most beautiful creature that soars through the air and accepts whatever challenges come his or her way! 


Something I love to do is visit Art Museums. The Kimble Museum in Fort Worth is my personal favorite. I have noticed that in many ancients works of art there are paintings with birds. If it is true, there are angels on earth, could there be magic in birds and do they have the vision to soar towards those whose spirits need to be lifted? Challenges are many. I see that every day of my life when working with buyers and sellers. As humans, I don't think we are immune to challenges.  


There is something about the song of a bird after a storm or the break of day that naturally reminds me of how important it is to live our lives in harmony. And I get that same feeling when there is a closing and the transaction is over. Oddly enough, I didn't even notice the debris on the ground until I saw it in my photograph. Life can be messy. Nothing is perfect. But it sure is worth meeting life challenges.


I think about the flight of birds, the clouds in the sky, the rain and the shine and I know that even though we are not bound by the same laws of nature, we are in this world together with all people. In some mysterious way, there has to be a link to people and all creatures on earth. I am proud to be a Texas Real Estate Agent meeting challenges and seeing the beauty in the aftermath of any storm or curveballs that are thrown my way.  


P.S. More thunderstorms are due tomorrow.

Stay safe through those storms, that is one beautiful bird. A singing bird reminds us that this too will pass, and we too can also sing. Being grateful is always a good place to start, I love your post and your positive outlook. When we see beauty we can overlook the debris that surrounds it. It is like light, it attracts our eye away from the darkness.

That's a gorgeous bird!

I do think we're all linked (people, animals, birds, etc).

Hello Patricia- - - I like the question your blog post title poses. Maybe the answer can be found/seen in the uniqueness of the photo you share or in the words or the. many interpretations we experience/imagine. The possibilities are there and each of us have the power to unlock them. Now. Perhaps later.

You are in my prayers for safety through the storms.  It was storming the day we met, so I am starting to think that Texas has too many storms, haha.  That is definitely a beautiful bird!

I hope you weather the storm and come out singing. Whether our storms are weather related, physical or internal, we need to keep singing.

Patricia even the Bible mentions birds and their lack of worry.  We humans could take a lesson form them.

Let's face our new challenges with the freshness of the songs of the birds.

The sounds of the mornings in our neighborhood are often the calls of the mourning doves.

Your post - and the comments - are inspiring and uplifting. Thanks for sharing your thoughts - and thanks for sharing that photo. I don't think I've ever even seen a photo of bird like that before - let alone the bird in person. Beautiful.

Patricia, what unexpected colors - purple and blue. Somehow this bird made me think about the Galapagos photos I've seen. I have never thought about birds lifting our spirits; yes, I do like to watch them, always, especially after a long and difficult day.
