When we are not connected to the purpose God has for us, we can become lonely and isolated and depressed. Sometimes our purpose changes as it does for Snowberry Pine Cone. We are grateful when offered new opportunities for meaning.When Snowberry drops from a pine tree onto the forest floor because her seed-bearing purpose is done, Snowberry is given a new purpose when she is discovered by Mrs. Dewbody, who is collecting pine cones to decorate her house for Christmas.Instead of becoming a glittery ornament for the tree, Snowberry becomes a bird feeder that provides seeds for hungry little birds during a harsh Connecticut winter. Her new purpose brings her happiness and friends as she provides food and comfort to the little birds who have found shelter in an abandoned nest above Mrs. Dewbody's back door.Sandy Smyth lives in Connecticut with her husband. She is the author of seven books: Gigi and Katy; You are Never All Alone; My Emerald Leaf; Journey to Wholeness through the Creative Arts; The Creative Process of Children; The Spirit-led Organization; and Sermons Never Preached on the Spirit-led Life (www.SandySmythBooks.com).M.A.R., 2010, Yale University, Divinity School;M.A.R.S., 1999, Sacred Heart University;B.A., Art, Elmira College.
