Snowy Birds... and a prayer...

It's bitterly cold out, and snow has been lightly blowing off and on all day. It's going to be colder soon. MUCH colder. 

I've drug my feet about putting out a bird feeder until we know what's going where in the yard. Still, the songbirds come seeking refuge. Today a large group of robins were clustering off of the patio, hiding under the bare rose bushes and eating the holly berries in the trees and drinking from the few unfrozen puddles on the patio. It reminded me of the need for clean water for them, and that God's providing despite my lack of movement in feeding them. 

I'll pick up some seed for them anyways, and see if we can find a spot for me to feed them where I can catch some photos... and just enjoy their beauty. Especially with the single digit (and negative??) temps creeping in over the weekend. 

Father, thank You for providing for the birds of the air, and the trees of the field. I ask Lord, that You will help me to remember to do my part, and also help me to remember that as much as You provide for them, You will provide for me. Help me to remember this in every season of life... in plenty and in need... and help my heart to hear Your prompting as You desire us to help others. Let me always be willing. Use us Lord. 

In Jesus' name... Amen

My heart has been breaking in unexpected places the past few months...friends passing away unexpectedly, illnesses attacking loved ones, me missing kids and grandkids, and not wanting to feel nostalgic for all the sadness around my heart right now. I feel tender and raw...vulnerable. I cry at the drop of a hat, even over silly things, like TALKING about not watching a movie that would make me cry...not even watching that movie. Just talking about it. Oh dear! I did want to touch base though as we approach Christmas...all the sadness is making me draw even nearer to Jesus, because He is my hope (and the hope of the world). I've enjoyed my time of Advent, singing in the choir at church, baking cookies for friends and neighbors. It helps me to shift gears emotionally and mentally when I can change it up a bit and do something new. And in God's goodness, He is allowing us to do something new for Christmas! I'll share the detai

Romans 12, Parts 2 and 3: Balanced and Beautiful in Christ

The new posts that I wrote for Balanced and Beautiful in Christ are now live on their Facebook page, and here on my new blog site (subscribe there so you don't miss a thing!). It's been a crazy few weeks (ok...are we going on several months now??) but I'm grateful that God had me write (and schedule) these several weeks ago. I pray that the words bless you and draw you closer to Himself.  Blessings, marina
