The Partridge in a Pear Tree Was Jesus Christ.

My blogger buddy over at The Pink Potpourri had an amazing and enlightening post today about the 12 Days of Christmas. You have to go visit her if she isn't one of your daily stops; I definately learned something new today.

So I am a firm believer of signs. I read her post today and also read it to my hubby who is Catholic and he didn't know the meaning of the 12 Days of Christmas song and how it came about.

We are struggling financially now due to our economy as both he and I work smack dab in the middle of the 2 hard hit sectors right now...the financial and housing industries.

So I was outside today and I heard a noise; I looked around and I saw a bird in a berry tree. Ok so it wasn't a Patridge (it could have been but I am no bird conneseaur but it was just a bird) nor a Pear tree but it was a sign that I am being watched over and everything is going to be fine
...just have faith!

I work in an industry where things are in the crapper right now, too and sometimes it just seems terrible, but as long as we remember WHO is in control we will be alright.
