Sunday's Birds of the air....

AND GROUND!  This morning I was graced by the Bluebird, Blue Jay, Cardinal, Several Flickers, and several species.  I kept snapping pics through the den window like mad!  The novelty never wears off for seeing God's wonderful winged creatures!  I feel so blessed that we get to see them right in our own backyard every day of the year!  His eye is on the sparrow and I know he watches me......

Everywhere I look there is a picture!  My Dad belonged to the Audubon Society.  All of his life he loved and studied birds and I often think of how he would have loved living here with all the wild birds!  He also was an artist and drew birds all the time.  I loved seeing his creations that he would draw from life looking from his kitchen window and porch.  One time I visited him and he had a cage full of finches!  I don't have a clue how he captured them but he drew them in different positions and then let them go again.  I miss comparing notes with him on what I have seen and he has drawn.  I have very few of his sketches and some are not complete but I do love and treasure them. 
Please pray for my husband who is in a great deal of pain today with his Multiple Myeloma. God Bless, Kerrie

A Bluebird! Woot! That has to mean that spring is on the way, I guess! :-)
