What to my wondering eyes should appear???

It does seem a bit early…
Could spring really be here?

A Green Revolution

“For the Lord has a case

Against the inhabitants of this land,

Because there is no honesty and no goodness

And no obedience to God in the land.

[False] swearing, dishonesty, and murder,

And theft and adultery are rife;

Crime follows upon crime!

For that, the earth is withered:

Everything that dwells on it languishes –

Beasts of the field and birds of the sky –

Even the fish of the sea perish.”

Hosea 4: 1b-3

Global warming, environmental disasters in the Old Testament???

Perhaps we would make progress if we went to the heart of the matter, our hearts.

This is a bird we often see in our garden. Sometimes they even use the window as a training video, attacking their reflection for hours on end. When that happens, I put up an extra curtain that reduces the reflection so that they don’t wear themselves out and stop for a bite to eat.

Here is where I got the photo:

First flakes of the winter this morning !!! It doesn’t seem to be sticking anywhere other than the Velux, except maybe on the roofs of unheated outbuildings. Seeing snow fall lifts my mood – I am still a kid.

Yesterday I realized I hadn’t clicked on the hunger site since the holidays.

I am embarrassed. I don’t know how I forgot that. I usually click on there once a day. The advertisers give the money that goes for food for hungry people. It is a simple small good deed that only takes a minute of my time.
