There is a House that Enchants Me

There is a house that enchants me. A mystery, and old, surrounded by trees and a fence that leans.

The road there is long and far from the maddening crowd. 

 The place is empty and awaits for someone to make it a home.

Scarlet Tanager on Wild Cherry Tree in Bloom in April

        At first when I saw red birds in my peripheral vision while walking the trail at Boch Hollow State Nature Preserve I didn't pay them any attention. Red birds are common to us after all, there being two pairs of northern cardinals in our yard alone. But wait, this bird is a different tone of red, with black wings and tail feathers making it look as if it is wearing a handsome tuxedo. There is an imprint now on my brain of a flash of scarlet red amidst cherry blossoms that I don't think can ever fade.

Jesus Knows

Jesus was talking with me as I went to sleep one night
 showing me things and explaining things to me so that EVERYTHING made sense. 
The thing is I cannot remember anything that He told me BUT I was left with a feeling of peace and the knowing that everything is going to be OK.  He knows what is going on and it is in control, in some way far beyond my simple understanding. Jesus was telling me to STOP TRYING TO FIGURE IT ALL OUT because I am not capable! It is beyond my brain! I have to stop doing that and just do what I can do right here, right now and live from my heart. Jesus knows about all this, we don’t have to figure it out, it is working out. Love will work it out.

Female Cardinal in the Dogwood Tree

The female cardinal sits among the dogwood tree's buds which hold the promise of spring.

Winter Visiters

          Winter is very serious this year. The weather men are threatening us with stories of incoming snow, ice and cold. So, I got out today in the 30 degree weather and sunshine to take a walk across the field. The red tailed hawk came to the silver maple tree to check things out. I hid behind the truck and zoomed in. With breast feathers fluffed she looked like she had a fancy, fur coat on. The ember colors woven throughout her plush, white robe matched the colors of the maple tree's buds. Exactly.

She is So Beautiful!
