Lift up your heads

The parrots were back again this morning. Instead of just buzzing the neighborhood as they did yesterday, they actually landed in the trees and on the high wires.

I'll tell you what: It was something else to see all those jaded southern Californians standing outside in their robes and pajamas, looking up into the sky in astonishment and wonder.

Lift up your heads for your redemption is drawing near . . .

I'm catching up on long overdue reading, and just found out about your parrots! We have some in our neighborhood, too. And it always feels like a grace-filled moment when I hear them arrive!

I wrote about them for the first time here
