|peace has always been a vision of immense caring and understanding for me -- it takes but one aggressor to foil the most peaceful environ -- and man, has the uncanny knack to accomplish the role of aggressor with ease -- peace and love my friend -- Jon Michael|

|It is the window we create, for life deals its game, we are players, each a voice seeking, so perfect or close, a smile and a memory, peace, a strange word, like silence, love, a sound echo, special lady you are, keep the pen flowing, fighting the fight, I pray for your health and smile... best day you can have, and better..

|Amen and Amen! your heart is bursting with ripe fruit in this delicious write Micke. And I have to say that Michele and I have the same kind of experience in our own back yard after work. She loves to feed the birds and the squirrels and even the occasional field rat (that I eventually take care of with my pellet gun). Sometimes 30 or 40 come by for the handouts of grain and nuts and fruit and to visit.
Blessings of love and peace 2U ...

|I pray for peace,
it exists right in my back yard.
My own backyard has taught me many lessons as well, Micke; as have Earth's many wondrous creatures. If only we had more followers of St. Francis, today.

|Excellent write, Jackie. Great lessons to be learned from this writing and in your back yard. God bless.|

|Living with boundaries closed to wild forest we drive carefully around here, young foxes would sit by the road to look at passing cars, cheeky squirrels will dart across with traffic disregard, birds will follow you for a while and between the trees a deer will curiously glance at your curious glance.

|Dear Micke, you have truly warmed the cockles of my heart, it was as if you were here, standing next to me, feeling and thinking the same, and now that I am in the bunker typing, St. Francis prayer hangs not far from me. I have tended a little baby Robin, now fully grown and healthy, except for his little leg, his back talon is bend forward, and his ankle is weak so that he walkes like a penquin with one foot, he keeps on pulling on that back talon to straighten it out, I had asked for assistance from a bird vet, but she doesn't do wild birds, and the wild bird care centre, don't garantee to fix it, between string and bubble gum so far no luck. I have let it lose in my backyard paradise for the last week, but guess what, it flies of the highest trees and lands on my head making a racket as robins do, I am not trying to tame it, it's free in the backyard for at least eight hours a day,eats, splashes in the water fountain, etc, it has adopted me though I think, and I am worried, for it gets bitter cold here, I might if it doesn't leave on its own, build him a sanctuary in my studio for the winter. Me thinks St. Francis is laughing at me.
Thanks for the joyful read. Hugs! Jasmin Horst

|I have enjoyed the same scene in my own backyard as my daughter has many feeders and water stations and my dog Mac usually lets leave and let live. I'm afraid only when Christ returns will there be peace when all are gathered as one in faith.|
