It seems as if we are bombarded with unsettling news nearly everyday now…high unemployment, rising prices, dysfunctional government, corporate greed, etc., etc…
There is hope in situations which appear hopeless. Don’t lose heart.
Look at the birds of the air: for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they?
Yes, you are of more value.
He even has the very hairs of your head numbered (Matt 10:30).
You are loved.
If you are struggling or worried you soon will be struggling, cast your cares on God. You do not need an elaborate prayer with puffy fluffy words, just quietly say, “Father, I need you.”

Your painting has really captured the spirit of those precious birds. Just gazing at them brought me peace… Thanks Christine
Thank you so much! Watching the birds at my feeder gives me that same feeling 🙂
Thanks for sharing….
And I also wanted to drop by this morning to share some rather upsetting news that came my way via the our local newspaper this morning. Did you know that October was “Squirrel Appreciation Month”? There were two full pages of squirrel articles and information in the newspaper. I knew things in our country were not good but I had no idea they were this bad!
And it really gets personal for me because October is my birth month and now I find a dark shadow has been cast by the infamous ‘tree rat’ and will forever hang over my birthday.
I knew you would probably be interested in this developing crisis and thought I should immediatetly share the information.
O, I’m losing respect for October already! WHAAaaaa….thanks for the big belly laugh!!!!!
BTW Happy B-Day this month, I’m sorry you have to share it with the famous tree rats 😦
