Seeds & Birds

The birds were making noise earlier in the backyard. It turned out they have been eating the seeds from the lone sunflower before I got to it. Thankfully, they have not completely eaten all of it and I got to harvest some. I saw Chickadees last year, but I didn’t see them today. What showed up in the front yard were Cedar Waxwings and a Robin.

He has saved us and called us to a holy life—not because of anything we have done but because of his own purpose and grace. This grace was given us in Christ Jesus before the beginning of time, 10 but it has now been revealed through the appearing of our Savior, Christ Jesus, who has destroyed death and has brought life and immortality to light through the gospel.”

2 Timothy 1:9-10 NIV

Speaking of purpose, this is found in Titus 2:14,

“who gave himself for us to redeem us from all wickedness and to purify for himself a people that are his very own, eager to do what is good.”

The good deeds may be known (such as the Proverbs 31 woman) and some that are known only by God. Little is written of Moses’ wife Zipporah, but we know that she was a woman who feared God since God in His sovereignty paired her to the man who was to be the deliverer of Israel to lead his people to the promised land. (Exodus 4:24-26). The very detail mentioned of her was a very crucial one.

  1. I loved the pictures

  2. I love when spring comes around again and the birds sing! We forget how sweet that “music” is until we here it again! That again is just another blessing from the Lord! It amazes me the music The Lord has created the birds to make!
    May you and your family enjoy yet another blessed day in the Lord knowing how blessed we truly are, Caeli!

    1. Totally agree about the birds singing! There’s the Blue Scrub Jay and the Crow and hearing them make noise is more of an annoyance! The other cute birds like the Chickadees, Junco, Cedar waxwing and wren are pleasant to hear.
