Like feeding wild birds? Like artwork too? There are some fantastic artists out there crafting wild bird feeders in hand thrown pottery. This type of stoneware is virtually weather-proof, and will never fade or discolor. That’s more than you can say for a lot of the commercial feeders on the market!
The hopper bird feeder above is a large capacity model, holding approximately 5 gallons of birdseed. The seed stays fresher longer as it’s protected from the elements. A generous overhang roof also helps to shelter birds from predators and the elements as well. Two seed ports and a large perching area will accommodate multiple birds at once. This type of bird feeder enhances any environment and creates a wonderful focal point. Wild Birdfeeders also make excellent, and long lasting gifts for any nature lover on your list…a gift to be used again and again, and enjoyed by many!
TWO FRIENDS WERE WALKING THROUGH THE DESERT.
DURING SOME POINT OF THE JOURNEY, THEY HAD AN ARGUMENT; AND ONE FRIEND SLAPPED THE OTHER ONE IN THE FACE.
THE ONE WHO GOT SLAPPED WAS HURT, BUT WITHOUT SAYING ANYTHING, WROTE IN THE SAND,
TODAY MY BEST FRIEND
SLAPPED ME IN THE FACE .
THEY KEPT ON WALKING, UNTIL THEY FOUND AN OASIS, WHERE THEY DECIDED TO TAKE A BATH. THE ONE WHO HAD BEEN SLAPPED GOT STUCK IN THE MIRE AND STARTED DROWNING, BUT THE FRIEND SAVED HIM.
AFTER HE RECOVERED FROM THE NEAR DROWNING, HE WROTE ON A STONE:
“TODAY MY BEST FRIEND SAVED MY LIFE”
THE FRIEND WHO HAD SLAPPED AND SAVED HIS BEST FRIEND ASKED HIM, “AFTER I HURT YOU, YOU WROTE IN THE SAND AND NOW, YOU WRITE ON A STONE, WHY?”
THE FRIEND REPLIED
“WHEN SOMEONE HURTS US WE SHOULD WRITE IT DOWN IN SAND, WHERE WINDS OF FORGIVENESS CAN ERASE IT AWAY.
BUT, WHEN SOMEONE DOES SOMETHING GOOD FOR US, WE MUST ENGRAVE IT IN STONE
WHERE NO WIND CAN EVER ERASE IT
LEARN TO WRITE YOUR HURTS IN THE SAND AND TO CARVE YOUR BENEFITS IN STONE.
THEY SAY IT TAKES A MINUTE TO FIND A SPECIAL PERSON, AN HOUR TO APPRECIATE THEM,
A DAY TO LOVE THEM, BUT THEN, AN ENTIRE LIFE TO FORGET THEM.
DO NOT VALUE THE THINGS
YOU HAVE IN YOUR LIFE, BUT VALUE
WHO YOU HAVE IN YOUR LIFE!
Be kinder than necessary, for everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle.
