Just a bit of interesting news to share with you all...
This is our small, country church. Last week, look what was discovered perched on the roof
of our church... (the picture was taken by one of the neighbors)
A beautiful snow owl.........an uncommon site in our area, until recently.
With the white snow and the blue sky, this little guy fits in perfectly. We feel so honored
that he chose our church to have his private prayer time.
Speaking of birds...
I recently read this in Matthew 6:26 TM;
"Look at the birds, free and unfettered, not tied down to a job description, careless in the care
of God. And you count far more to him than the birds."
"Careless in the care of God. And why shouldn't they be?
For their food, He provides insects in the air,
seeds on the ground.
For their search for food. He provides eyes that are keen,
wings that are swift.
For their drinking, He provides poolings of rainwater.
For their bathing, He provides puddles.
For their survival, He provides migratory instincts to take them
to warmer climates.
For their flight, He provides bones that are porous and
For their warmth, He provides feathers.
For their dryness, He provides a water-resistant coating.
For their rest, He provides warm updrafts so they can
glide through the air.
For their journey, He provides the company of other travelers.
For their return, He provides the companionship of a mate.
For their safety, He provides a perch in branches far
from the reach of predators.
For their nest, He provides twigs.
And for every newborn beak, He provides enough worms so
they can grow up to leave the nest and continue the cycle of life.
It's no wonder they're so free from the cares of the world.
The wonder is, if we count more to Him than the birds,
why aren't we?"
Thanks so much for stopping by this evening.
Beautiful and uniquely captured photos by my uncle.
