We used to have a family of six Hungarian Partridge who hung around our front yard under the evergreen trees.
In the back yard there were three. They buried themselves in the snow. I tried to show them to you through the screen of my bedroom window.
All you could make out was a couple of dark blurry bumps!
This morning I noticed only five in that family that used to be six!
This afternoon I discovered why. I think one flew into our kitchen window.
All that was left of that lovely bird was a few scattered feathers.
I hope it wasn’t our frisky Boston Terrier who devoured the rest of the bird.
I didn’t see any feather residue on her when she came back in🤪💔
TazE, did you devour our lovely partridge!?
Think I should put some decals on the windows?
Bee a Giver
I’m here to bee a giver,
Sharing the nectar of love.
I’m here just to bee me,
Dancing to beats from above.
Hear the screech of the owls
As those beauties scan the snow.
The partridge huddle together
Giving each other protection where they go.
Let me be as the creatures
Who share warm love so freely.
Bless their lives in our midst;
They’re naturally touchy-feely!
Are you naturally a touchy-feely person?
Bee a Joy-Bringer!
Why not spread lots of sweetness?
Plenty to be found!
There are so many reasons
To be joyful every day.
Open my eyes, Lord,
To the smiles in my way.
I can carry all the troubles,
See the gloom and the doom,
Or I can listen to the birds
As their song fills this room.
I can marvel at snow
Or complain of the drifts.
Open my heart, Lord,
To be ready for shifts.
Shift gears to the joy
Each fresh, new day brings.
Help me bee a joy-bringer;
Turn winter hearts into springs!
On a cold and frosty Montana morning
I sit in my sanctuary – surrounded by angels
And the stillness within and without
Takes me to my inner sanctuary
Come and join me this morning
In the beauty of a winter day
From the warmth of my Angel Room
My place of respite, where the Holy Spirit dwells
The sky is dark and we’re in a cloud
The angels within sing quietly; they’re never loud
Jesus prays with me from His place in my cloud
And reminds me that FAITH is not for the proud
With humble appreciation, I think of the faces
Who surround me with love in these heavenly spaces
I thank God for the trees all frosty with glitter
I dream of the people gone before me – they flitter
In and out of my prayers, like the three angels here
They remind me of prayer partners far away, yet so near.
I think of the gifts of poets and artists
The angels surround me – sending thoughts that are part of us
Some are melancholy, reminding me of my sins
Others are joyful, and my gratitude spins
I remember the angel who decorated this egg
And all the other creative friends – Watch over them, I beg
Help my friends who are ill and need special care
Shine Your light on them… let them know You are there
Bring them comfort and health and wisdom galore
Hold them close to Your Heart, Lord, give them so much more…
… than ever they dreamed of; like the birds of the air
Let them know you are with them; show them how much You care.
As the darkness subsides and the blue sky emerges,
Send them all Your GREAT LOVE that in my heart surges…
Great love for the angels that brighten my day.
And now, my dear friends, I send some your way!
Bird in a Gilded Cage
I’m only a bird in a gilded cage.
I’m trapped in a pent-up life.
I see the blue sky and the world out there,
But I’m locked in a world of strife.
I know I have friends who are here with me.
I feel their support and love;
But they can’t quite reach all my problems here –
I’m counting on the Lord above.
He’s not just a God who is far removed.
He’s my Savior, Deliverer, Friend.
I take all my strife to the Lord in prayer
And count on the Holy Spirit to descend.
Come into the cage of Your gilded bird.
Come into my heart today.
Take all of my troubles and grant me peace.
Give me love, JOY, and patience, I pray.
