Those Hummingbird Pictures on Yesterday’s Blog

I’m glad so many of you enjoyed that hummingbird picture.That little nest is right out front of our house. Ron hasn’t been able to do too much this year and  believes that God sent them for his personal enjoyment. I do too.

We only happened to spot the nest by keeping an eye out for the mother flitting back and forth. Even as she enters the maple branches, she weaves back and around to discourage any followers.

Apparently, the nests are made from spiders webs! How is it that the bird can get hold of those things and not get strangled, when humans walk into one and are picking off bits for ages?

Answer? Because humans don’t need nor want a spider web. That might be the answer to why we don’t always get what we go after. We didn’t need it in the first place. God knows it but we persevere in finding out the hard way.

God is Waiting

We were saddened to discover our summer visitors  left without saying good bye. Hummingbirds are polite, social beings. Every year they announce their arrival by fluttering in our face for a few seconds and they say good bye the same way.

This year,the  September chill kept us from the back porch. Any fluttering birdies fluttered alone.

How like our relationship with God. We wonder why we don’t feel so cherished and close to Him as we used to, only to discover that He has been waiting patiently for us to make ourselves available to His presence.

This might be a great day to sit down with your Bible.

The book of John is a great place to start.

God is waiting for you…
