When you hear the name Sandpiper, do you think of the bird or the singing trio who began their career in the mid-sixties? This morning I am thinking of the the three young men who released this song in 1970. It seems to fit this Saturday morning for me because it brings back a memory of my wedding day, May 8,1954. Even though it may be afternoon in other parts of the world it is still morning here in Canada. Happy Saturday.
“All things bright and beautiful, all creatures great and small; all things wise and wonderful, the Lord God made them all.” Cecil Frances Alexander (1818 – 1895)
And God said, “Let the water teem with living creatures, and let birds fly above the earth across the vault of the sky.” Genesis 1:20
An Alabama photographer captured stunning photographs of a cardinal so rare that experts have referred to it as ‘one in a million.’ (Pinterest)
No matter the source, all things bright and beautiful are a sight to behold these days. Happy Sunday.
Psalm 104:12 reads: The birds of the sky nest by the waters; they sing among the branches.
Praying your Sunday is as peaceful as this pastoral scene. Happy Sunday.
Have you sometimes wondered if birds ever wake up grumpy? It seems to me they are always singing from the time they wake up until they tuck into their wings again at day’s end.
What do they know that we don’t know?
Let’s take it from the birds and start our day with a song, no matter what.
May you have life eating out of the palm of your hand this weekend. Happy Saturday.
Have you ever wondered what birds talk about?
Have you ever wondered where the rainbow begins and ends?
Have you ever wondered what a human looks like to an ant?
Have you ever wondered why there is only one numbered cloud?
Have you ever wondered how silent and listen are related?
Just wondering. Happy Saturday.
One of my great-granddaughters loves owls so whenever I come across one of these wise old birds I take notice. But is an owl really that wise? It appears that he lags behind other birds, particularly ravens, in having the smarts, but the message today sounds wise to me. Happy Saturday.
There are so many things on the face of this earth that are unexplainable, unbelievable, and out of the ordinary. I love when I stumble on one of them like this beauty. This is the caption that accompanied it: Can you believe how beautiful this bird is – God does good work!!! If God cares this much about a bird, can you only imagine how much he loves us. Just look at those colors! Happy Saturday.
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.
