Since 1989, working to increase the Eastern Bluebird population with Bluebird Houses and Educational Programs.

Bluebird Valley

I awoke one night from a restless sleep
And standing there beside my bed
Was the vision of an angel with golden hair
Who looked at me and smiled and said

“Your life has not been perfect, my friend.
You’ve made mistakes and committed sins
But I know you’ve asked to be forgiven
And that’s where the Good Lord’s love comes in.

The good things you’ve done in life
Out weigh the bad, the sins, and all the rest
And I’ve been sent down here from Heaven
To tell you that you will be blessed.

One of the good things that you have done
Just happened to catch the Good Lord’s eye
And that will be your one salvation
When the time comes for you to die.

Of all God’s many wondrous creatures
He loves the little bluebirds best
And the work that you have done for them
Has helped you pass life’s greatest test.

Tell your friends who come to help you
They will receive God’s blessings, too.
When you all were looking out for His bluebirds
God was looking out for you.

God’s made a special place for you.
It’s as pretty as it can be.
A big green valley with sky so blue
And a bluebird sitting in every tree.

All your animals will be there waiting
The bobcats, deer, wolf, and bear
And when it’s time for you to go
I’ll come back and take you there.

Tell those you love that when you’ve gone
There’ll be no need for them to grieve
For you’ll be happy in Bluebird Valley
And that’s one thing they can believe.”

I drifted into peaceful sleep
And later on, when came the dawn
I awoke and looked around the room
But back to Heaven the angel had gone.

And now I know that beautiful valley
Is up there somewhere waiting for me.
It’s God’s promise from the angel
When I’ve gone, that’s where I’ll be.
