#FeatherFriday

Y’all, something is going on with these feathers.

If you aren’t on social media, I should tell you I had totally forgotten that Jac0b had been collecting feathers at his foster home.  Can you believe that? We now have a legitimate collection.  And do you know notice the blue theme?  It happens to be Jac0b’s favorite color and his birthstone.

Since Wednesday, several people have posted to my wall, tagged me on Instagram or have texted me and let me know they have also found feathers.  And it’s not like they’re going out and looking for them.  My friend Sarah said for the first time in 5 years of living at her home, one was lying on the ground right in front of her car door.  My friend Beth said she found one right in front of the door at work.  My sister-in-law found one INSIDE the door at work.  It’s like God is placing these feathers right in their paths.  And I’ve noticed a pattern with many of them–it’s when they are coming and going to and from work.

I believe he wants to remind not just me that I’m loved and provided for, but also these ladies too! The point is not the feathers.  The point is God is talking to us!!

So, let’s make this a thing, feel free to share during the week, but if you’re on social media, use the tag #FeatherFriday and we can all see the feathers together in one day.  If you don’t have social media, I’ll be glad to post for you!

Scott and I had to go to the Apple store today (Friday) to get his iPhone battery replaced under warranty today.  Of course, we had to swing into Cheesecake Factory for lunch and I did some window shopping.  There, in Pottery Barn, I stopped in my tracks when I saw this display.

Pottery Barn doesn’t know it, but even they are on board with #FeatherFriday.

Apparently feathers are a thing right now because they had this pillow for sale.

I couldn’t not get it.  I mean, really, I NEVER buy anything at Pottery Barn, but I had to have this one.

Oh my goodness, it is perfect in my living room. Seriously made for our house. You can’t tell in the picture either, but it has lots of blue in it.

Thanks to all your suggestions, I’m going to get a shadow box hopefully this weekend to display the feathers we have found as a family.  I love these visual reminders that God loves us and will provide for us right in the space where we are doing life together.

He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart. Psalm 91:4

And speaking of, life was good this week, thanks to some adoptive moms who have reached out and therapists and some good ‘ol hormones acting right.  It’s amazing how much good it does to just hear everything is normal and expected.  This is a huge transition time for all of us and even though I was a little blindsided by some of our issues, I think I’m in a better place emotionally to handle it.  And as God has been using the feathers to confirm, we’re gonna be alright.

    I am crying. Because it’s beautiful and God is so much. And I love how Jesus wants to cover us with His feathers, and how you are covering your chicks with feathers. Amen.
