There are many different versions of where the phrase “knock on wood” originated. The meaning is similar to warding off bad luck. It’s easy to research the origins but I won’t go into that here. Suffice to say this is not one of them. This is the Male Northern Flicker Woodpecker knocking on wood. Just a bit of trivia…Happy Wednesday.
Look what I found while looking up more hugging images. These pictures suit the title of this post, don’t you think? Happy Wednesday.
As mentioned last Sunday, church is not the building. Today you are invited to attend a different church. It’s just a click away thanks to AndiesIsle.com which is an experience in itself. Most services are an hour or more but this experience is less than five minutes. Happy Sunday.

Sometimes it’s nice to be different. It has been said to me, “You’re different.” I have never asked in what way am I different in case I didn’t like the forthcoming answer. But seeing this photo I like the look of different. Since we are all different in one way or another, what’s the difference? Happy Saturday.
If you don’t have the time to look for different things to color your world, let me inject some color into your weekend. This beautiful bird poster came to me via Pinterest and it’s too beautiful to keep to myself. Happy Saturday.
There was a recent incident in my life which could have caused me fear and the need for protection. I felt neither. Instead, I made a conscious decision to support the person involved and later prayed for confirmation that the right decision had been made. Within minutes a flock of five blue jays appeared in my yard. That seemed strange because I rarely see a blue jay. I googled that bird and read:
This bird may symbolize protection and fearlessness. If blue jays appear in your life you will feel safe and protected.
Confirmation received with thanks. Happy Sunday.
Along with the red wing blackbirds, chickadees, robins, cardinals, and sparrows usually hanging out in my yard, these three newcomers paid me a visit within the last few days. It made me very happy to see the rose breasted grosbeak, a bluebird and a junco vying for a place on the feeder and even gracing my deck with a short visit. All these feathered friends add to my happiness. Happy Saturday.
Some of us have something to sing about every day and others don’t.
As for the birds they seem to start every day with a song. Happy Saturday.
Some people have reasons to feel “blue” and others feel “blue” for no reason at all. Today let me share a “blue” that just looking at may change the way you see and feel “blue”. Happy Saturday.
