Where Were You?



Saw this picture on Facebook of my granddaughter walking on the beaches of Maine and and I messaged the friend who took it and asked her if I could use it--

The ocean always makes me realize how small I am and how large my God is.

I love Job 38--

Here is a portion.........

“Who shut up the sea behind doors when it burst forth from the womb,

 when I made the clouds its garment and wrapped it in thick darkness,

 when I fixed limits for it and set its doors and bars in place,

 when I said, ‘This far you may come and no farther;

 here is where your proud waves halt’?


 On a sad note-- Yesterday my husband said, "Come here and look at the hawk on our hanging fern." We have four on the front porch.

My heart immediately sunk and I yelled, "Oh no, he is after my baby birds."

Sure enough I went out and they were gone--I live in the middle of the city--can you believe it?

They were hanging up high so I wasn't worried about predators.

How do any baby birds ever live to become adults--heart broken!

BTW, if we have been blogging friends for a while, please feel free to "friend" me on FB--I feel like I keep up with my friends there much better than with blogging. I am listed as Dianne McDaniel Hogue.

Beautiful picture and I also love the passage from Job. How is Kailey doing now?
So sorry about the baby birds. We have several boxes on our property and have had this happen a few times. I was especially saddened last year when a blue jay raided my sweet bluebird's box and crushed all the eggs. I found them on the ground beneath the nest. The parent bluebirds just sat on the tree limb when they returned, seemingly stunned.
I am not on Facebook so I can't keep in touch that way.
Love you~

So sorry about the babies. We have a hawk in our neighborhood too that goes after the smaller birds at our pond. All part of Gods plan ~ tho I'd rather not witness it (:
