    Default God gave me an answer

    Funny story. I was having a conversation with god, while I was cleaning up my yard.
    I told him I wasn't sure if I would be ready to raise bees again this year.
    I was working in the backyard.
    I walked around the side of the house to the front yard, and found a nice swarm of honey bees in the pine tree in front of the house.
    I went and got one of my old boxes. Walked over put it underneath the Swarm. Nipped off the branches and laid it on top of my box. They flowed into my box like water.
    I am feeling truly blessed.

    BTW: God gave me my answer.
    Pass it on to the kids........

    Not saying this in a atheist tone, but maybe the bees gave you the answer.

    How about we meet in the middle and call it "Bee Gods gave the answer" or "God's Bees gave the answer" :-)

    OP, congratulations and enjoy. Nature is beautiful.

    Cool, thanks for sharing.
    The more I learn about bees, the less I know.

    My first thought was "Why would God care who keeps bees?"

    Neat that a swarm showed up, though!

    I would say my answer is: God answered you through the bees. Same way He speaks of His existence through nature.

    Maybe because someone asked?

    Regardless of what/who gave you your answer, you got it. Now, enjoy the addiction.
