“God gives every bird its food, but He does not throw it into its nest.”
~Josiah Gilbert Holland
The Lord provides the tools that are necessary to achieve something great, but He does not just hand you success in a gift box. You must do your part by opening your heart to Him and putting in the effort to discover His chosen path for your life. In other words, he gives you seeds, but it is up to you to plant them. Once you take that step, He will nurture you and help you grow, but you must be willing to put the work in.
Keep this in mind as you pray for your dreams and goals to become a reality…
Did you enjoy this Parakeet Post? What does this quote mean to you?
Also, you may have noticed that there have been several changes to the blog over the past few days. I decided to mix things up a bit, and this led to the addition of a header image, sidebar text updates, revised pages (available on the Menu), and the creation of a new tagline! Maysa Rose is now “the random musings of me.” Let me know what you think in the comments below, and I hope that you have a great weekend!

Kiwi is wishing all of her readers a fantastic rest of the week!
It has been way too long since the last Parakeet Post, so Kiwi & Olive are demanding their monthly highlights on the blog again… I know a few of you were quite concerned by their absence, but they are okay! It is no secret that they had been getting significantly less attention throughout these past few months as my schedule became tighter, and they no longer had the luxury of constant interaction when I stopped my homeschooling program. This year has definitely been a challenge to balance everything and keep up with posting in general, but I am starting to get used to the new norm. However, I have a special announcement…
The Parakeet Post has returned! Kiwi & Olive are welcoming all of their fans back because they missed everyone so much. 🙂 For those of you who have recently joined Maysa Rose, the Parakeet Post is an amusing collection of posts that are featured monthly to share the sweet moments of these two birds. I hope that you enjoy their upcoming posts!
I think Kiwi found herself a boyfriend… These two have been attracted like magnets for the past few weeks, and I was able to catch these sweethearts on camera during this precious moment.
However, Olive is getting pretty jealous,
and Calypso is just pouting…
*I was glad to host these two beautiful guests on this month’s parakeet post! I hope that you enjoyed this as much as I did. 🙂

Kiwi and Olive seem to have missed me while I was away, because I was showered with so many hugs and kisses when I returned. Fortunately, I managed to capture this adorable moment on camera (thanks, Olive). I am so, incredibly thankful for my friend who cared for them while I was gone. I am actually bird sitting her two beautiful birds right now as she attends her 5 week ballet intensive. Kiwi and Olive were absolutely thrilled to see their best friends again, and I am so happy to have these lively visitors in my care.
I know it is a day late, but Happy Summer/Winter Solstice!
I also forgot to announce that I have completely redone my blog. The layout has changed drastically on the computer version, and I am super pleased with this new look! What do you guys think? I hope that you enjoyed this post! 🙂
Vibrant feathers gracefully float to the bottom of the cage as Kiwi undergoes her springtime molt. She poses for a photo, and I quickly capture the moment for this Parakeet Post. I love this beautiful budgie. 🙂
Reggae… Kiwi and Olive were absolutely thrilled when I turned on my Reggae playlist this morning, and they chirped along in complete delight. This has always been their favorite music genre, and they never seem to get tired of summertime vibes.
Before I started to play the songs out loud, I was quite interested to see how they would react to my earbuds…. Unfortunately, Kiwi didn’t want to have anything to do with this little adventure, but Olive thoroughly enjoyed herself! I decided to snap a picture of this brave little bird to share with you all this morning. Happy Saturday!
