sunday observations...




"In almost everything that touches our everyday life on earth, God is pleased when we're pleased. He wills that we be as free as birds to soar and sing our maker's praise without anxiety." —A.W. Tozer

Do you think He gave us birds to illustrate the freedom we have in Him....freedom to praise Him every day....
What a gift.....

This is just lovely, Leslie ... peace in the midst.

After all, He made this creation for our enjoyment. Great quote and a lovely shot.

We saw a similar woodpecker on a palm stump on our walk last evening - not 10' away (of course, I'm under strict orders to leave my camera at home when we go on walks ;-)

Have a great week, Leslie.

Beautiful, this is along the same line of what God is giving me this week, that he is good and to believe in his goodness, as always you illustrated it so well!

Lucky you. I waited all winter for a woodpecker and never saw a one. :(
