I thank you Lord, with all my heart,
offering praise and gratitude without a break.
All that I am tells the story of your love;
I want everyone to hear the good news and be glad. – Psalm 34 (paraphrase)
I have two posts brewing this morning, but less than zero available time. So I’m going to punt. Fortunately I just took these photographs yesterday, and I suspect you’re going to enjoy them.
I am especially pleased to have seen a couple more infrequent visitors – an Orchard oriole and a hawk. This was a nice follow up to the Rose-breasted Grosbeak who favored us with his presence a couple of weeks back.
I really do see these serendipities as pockets of grace in this difficult time. I am always asking people in the groups I lead to share “God-sightings.” I ask others because I am blessed with so many myself.
Here are just a few.
Happy Saturday – DEREK
