Fingerprint Friday was started by Beki, at The Rusted Chain. It was inspired by the song by Steven Curtis Chapman that contains the line…”when I look at you, I can see the fingerprints of God.” To participate and/or visit all of the blogs that do, go to the Fingerprint Friday Post on Beki’s blog and follow the instructions.
I love living in the country.
The air is sweet,
The birds sing their sweet songs
Rabbits hop around unafraid of those big, bad hawks.
I love living in the country…always some kind of drama to be found on a morning walk!
Here is Ms. Cottontail in a photo taken a few weeks ago.
The adventures of the morning brought to mind this favorite passage from scripture:
“To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:
A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted;
A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up;
A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance;
A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;
A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away;
A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;
A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace.”
Ecclesiastes 3:1-8 KJV
“I know that everything God does will endure forever; nothing can be added to it and nothing taken from it. God does it so that men will revere him.” Ecclesiastes 3:14 NIV
Have a beautiful Friday and a lovely weekend.
God bless you.
P.S. Just as I was about to hit the Publish key, something caught my eye in the container garden. It was one of our young hawks, sitting on top of the chiminea where I had placed a begonia that was looking a bit pititful. He was eating the begonia leaves or at least that is what it looked like. Probably there were insects around the plant and he was snacking on those. I got some photos out of the kitchen window and will post them tomorrow, if they turn out well. Like I said, always a bit of drama in the country! Blessings!
