Have a safe 'Memorial Day' weekend!


(Please mute Playlist first)

The Lord is my light and my salvation --
whom shall I fear?
The Lord is the stronghold of my life --
of whom shall I be afraid?

Ps. 27:1


Hope you're having a wonderful day!

I'm in the middle of Spring Cleaning this week,
with little time for blogging,
so thought I'd
pass along these pics
sent to me by a friend......




Not kidding on this one!!

I can see how it might be possible for a man to look down upon the earth and be an atheist, but I cannot conceive how he could look up into the heavens and say there is no God.
--Abraham Lincoln

Lift your eyes and look to the heavens:
Who created all these?
He who brings out the starry host
one by one,
and calls them each by name.
--Isaiah 40:26
The heavens declare the glory of God;
the skies proclaim the work of His hands.
--Psalm 19:1


Happy Mother's Day to my dear sweet wonderful mother, who just celebrated her 92nd birthday a few weeks ago!

Here are three logs we have tied together in the bird feeding area near our garage.
Notice the pileated woodpecker on the ground looking them over.........

A little later in the day, we looked out and noticed this pile of sawdust.
Uh-oh! Bad Boy!!

The next day, he was back pecking away for more worms. Do you suppose he's wondering if the ceramic squirrel on the log might be a threat?
The giant hole you see is even bigger now. He's pecked away about half of two of the logs. Here, one of the chipmunks (on the tallest log) is staring him down.
In spite of the mess he's made, I think woodpeckers are such fascinating birds!
He'll probably be back again tomorrow. Looks like we need to go looking for some log replacements! S: )


And my God will meet all your needs according to His glorious riches in Christ Jesus.
--Philippians 4:19

Wishing you a beautiful Lord's Day!


Today is our 46th Anniversary.
Happy Anniversary, Bill!
God really smiled on me when He sent you into my life.
I hope we have at least 46 more years together! S: )
