3 Day 3 Quotes Challenge Day Eight

I love the encouragement in this verse not to worry. (And the verses before and after it too.) 🙂

As for this photo, I’m fairly certain that this is a baby cardinal. I was so fortunate to find him. I remember the parents were trying to scare me away as I took photos, and back then, I had the old camera so I had to get very close to take the photo. I’m surprised that he let me. I prayed that he would stick around for a few good shots and he did! I had to leave after a few minutes though because my cats were getting curious about what I was photographing and I didn’t want him to become lunch. Therefore, I left and gave my cats their dinner early so he could fly away in peace. 🙂




The Day Will Be Born!

It’s week 54 of 100 Word Wednesday, and here is the photo prompt and my response – on time, unlike last week! 😅 If you’d like to join in the fun, just click the link! 😉

**I wrote this before looking at the photo full screen; after getting a closer look, I realized that there ARE cars on the road. Oops. 😅 But I’m posting this as it is anyway.

Photo by Roman Logov

I glance down at a skyscraper
That reached up toward the clouds,
It was seen clearly through the foggy vapor
Because winds blew away the shroud…

I saw no cars or people on the roadways this morn.
It was almost time! Have they no clue?
The sun will rise, the day will be born!
I sang the song, “Hello sun, good morning to you!”

I fluttered on by, getting a bird’s eye view,
My vermillion wings catching the air;
I felt the wind in my feathers as I flew
Away; my job here, done. Time to sing elsewhere!

Peaceful Place

It’s week thirteen of 100 Word Wednesday, and here is the photo and my response. If you’d like to participate, just click the link! 😉

Beautiful photo, BikurGirl! 🙂 I really like those puffy clouds in the background – it makes an already great photo even better. ♥

Ah, a peaceful place to unwind.
I grab a piece of bread to feed the birds.
A voice stops me; I look up to find
The park ranger pointing to printed words.

“See, read that sign over there,
Feeding the birds is prohibited.
God feeds the fowls of the air;
Keep the pity inhibited.”

“Can I at least feed the fish?
Don’t take all the fun outta this trip.
May I at least have that wish?”
“Fine,” he says, “But don’t gimme lip.”

We talk about this and that,
And soon he asks for a date!
Before I leave this chitchat,
I declare that it must be fate!

** The line about God feeding the birds was inspired by Matthew 6:26: “Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they?” One of my favorite verses. ♥
