Finding hope in the middle of the bird poop

Today as I sat at my vendor table selling my art and devotional books I suddenly was covered with bird poop. Okay not covered; just on my arm and elbow and thankfully not in my hair!

The Bible tells us that God watches over the Sparrow; so my question is while God was watching that Sparrow didn’t He see me underneath the bird?

Lots of people have stopped by my booth and said how beautiful my work was but no sales of Art. Fortunately I did sell one of my devotional books. If I was going to sell anything that is the best, as we all know that God’s Word will not come back void.

Perhaps the lesson from the bird poop is that God wanted to keep me humble.

Maybe another title for this could be Lessons Learned in the Midst of the Bird Poop!!

Or Poops R Us.

Closing up shop.

Met some wonderful people. Several vendors said today was the worst day for sales for this year! Perhaps the word on the street was “Watch out for the bird poop.”
