Sabbath Keeping

~ ravens, I think... ~

"But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint."
Isaiah 40:31

"How helpless we are, like netted birds, when we are caught by desire!" Belva Plain

"A bird does not sing because it has an answer. It sings because it has a song."
Chinese Proverb

"Use what talents you possess: the woods would be very silent if no birds sang there except those that sang best." Henry Van Dyke

"A wise old owl sat on an oak; The more he saw the less he spoke; The less he spoke the more he heard; Why aren't we like that wise old bird?" Edward Hersey Richards

"Use those talents you have. You will make it. You will give joy to the world. Take this tip from nature: The woods would be a very silent place if no birds sang except those who sang best." Bernard Meltzer

~ a long way off, snow egrets nest for the evening ~

"But even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not therefore: ye are of more value than many sparrows." Luke 12:7

~ snow egret flying in for evening meal ~

Until next time,

Blessings ~ birds ~ a Father who cares for His creation ~ fear not ~ Our Father's plan ~
