Saturday, February 5

February 5, 2011 (36/365)

This morning the sun is shining, the snow is glistening, and the birds are plentiful around the feeders, poor things - the deer got most of the seed earlier this week - once again - even though I did try a great suggestion of mixing crushed red pepper with the seed - and it didn't work for me :(

I loved seeing the sunshine lighting up my dove photo's this morning. Made me think of the promises of God. Noah was one of those men, who stood tall and confident (it had to be so hard for him) thru the building of the ark - and the accusations, and then thru the time on the ark with all of the animals, wondering ... when is this going to end.

I am so glad I have not had to walk in Noah's shoes (or be on the ark with him) - but I (like you) have walked thru storms of my own - and yes - God is faithful.

I amy not see all of the outcomes in this life - but I trust Him.

God is Good, all the time.
All the time, God is Good!

Lovely post. I guess its better you have deer in your yard than bear... or mice! I can't put out bird seed in the winter because it attracts mice. They are a nuisance when they get into your car and chew your wires, or mess up your garage.
Keep weathering the storm. God is with you.

Lovely post!
I too posted a dove this morning.
Their cooing sounds are soft and pleasant.

Beautiful photo, Valerie!

I think I was the one who suggested crushed red pepper. Well, guess what? After a while, it didn't deter the squirrels either! So now, I'm back to safflower seed - more expensive, but in the long run probably cheaper because I'm only feeding birds.

I would welcome the deer, however. They are beautiful creatures.

Amen to that! I love the photo... there is something about the sun in the winter that is so appreciated. Maybe because you can feel its warmth even in a photo!
