God is In the Details

We had a chorus of goldfinch and a house finch on our fountain this morning. I think they were enjoying the cooler weather, too. See if you can count how many there were. One is hiding.

I was thinking how easy it is during this tumultuous time in our country to lose our focus and get consumed by worry. You and I need to keep our focus on the bigger picture of life, be wise in decision making and seek our Lord's guidance. These verses below are helpful to me in situations where I have no control.

"Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life?. . . But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own."
Matthew 6: 26-27, 33-34.


  1. How many birds? 5? A terrific shot and a great message. What a blessing to realize WHO is in charge.He will supply ALL our needs. Thanks for the reminder.

  2. I'm pretty sure there are 6 birdies, one is halfway behind the top of the fountain.

  3. I have to admit, that was always one of my favorite verses.. It's also a good reminder when people are freaking out about our current economic crises.

    It's impossible to die from a recession. Just hold on and wait it out. No matter what happens, no matter what age you are, it will all work out in the end.


Thanks so much for stopping by for a visit. Please say hello while you are here. It would be so wonderful to meet you.
