You Rescued Me

You brought me out of sin and shame. 

You saw me there and called my name.

You rescued me from hurt and pain.

You found me and you broke my chains.  

Replacing them with peace and joy, 

My Savior’s love I’d now enjoy.

I had wasted many years, 

but you were there to calm my fears. 

Now, all my life I’ll praise your Name 

For you, O Lord, My life reclaimed.

“Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ,  who gave himself for our sins to rescue us from the present evil age, according to the will of our God and Father,” Galatians 1:3-4 NIV

“For he has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of the Son he loves,” Colossians 1:13 NIV

With Love,

My Morning Prayer of Thanks

“But ask the animals, and they will teach you, or the birds in the sky, and they will tell you . . . Which of all these does not know that the hand of the Lord has done this?” Job 12:7-9

Watching the birds from my porch always brings me closer to God. I wrote a poem this morning based on what I saw.

Lord, Thank you for my birds so sweet. Thank you for the food they eat.

Thank you that she has a mate. A lovely male to share her plate.

Thank you for the songs they sing – praises to our Lord and King.

Doves pick up the seed below. Your plan, O God, that all will grow.

The Crows, they are so very smart. They make a tool to get all parts.

Purple Martins dart about. Eating insects – without a doubt.

I say, my birds – but they are yours. Shared with me, all doubts to cure.

Did You Know?

  1. When Bluebirds have an early brood, chicks of the first brood may stay back and help raise the young of the second brood.*
  2. New Caledonian crows can make and use hook tools – the only species other than humans to do so!**
  3. Mockingbirds can precisely imitate the complex songs of hundreds of other species.* When I was a little girl, my dad passed by a mockingbird every morning on his walk to work. He started whistling to the bird, and then one day the bird whistled the exact same song back to him!

With Love,
