A Strange Bird

Hello Everyone!

I've seen a new species of bird in the birdbath located in my aunt's side yard under the big pecan tree! It is very unusual - black and white with grayish spots under its throat, extending down its breast. It has long legs and was enjoying the nice cool water my cousin had added to the birdbath only an hour before. What a sight to see! I wonder if the Audubon Society would believe me if reported my findings?

Do any of you recognize this bird? I tried to capture it on film so I would be believed, but have yet to be successful. I'll keep trying! It was such a delight to see it standing in the birdbath, drinking the fresh, cool water on such a warm day! It reminds me of how God provides that which we need at just the right time. I've been in the garden gathering and just about the time I think I can't do one more thing, a nice cool breeze will come and revitalize me for the rest of my task. Such is the grace of God!

It flows over us like that nice, cool breeze that revitalizes us on a hot day. We are able to handle those unexpected obstacles that pop up in our lives each day.

Like the new bird in the birdbath, we can enjoy the nice refreshment of the Living Water and the cool breeze of the Grace of God as we face each day!

Again, if anyone recognizes this "bird," post and identify it. Here's a clue, it may be able to masquerade itself! It appears from time to time on "Plant Lady's Ponderings."

Be Encouraged!

Ok - I googled that strange bird that was black with greyish spots for 45 mins and I had no luck!!
So, did you find out what that little bird is?

Hi Plant Lady,
aka my friend,well I'm thinking it is not a bird at all. I think it must be another little critter, however I haven't figured out what it is YET. :).
I'm home, did you find Katrina? I heard from Sharon. Well have a very blessed day, I'll be playing catch up after taking the day off, Monday is not a holiday at my company so will need to get back in line. I'll do a post and make comments on everyones blog.

Be Blessed,
Lynn

Just checking to see if you had a good holiday. Have you found out what kind of bird you had?
Talk to you again soon,

Hi
I haven't heard from her or Mary. I'll keep them in my prayers.
Have a great day.
Love,
Lynn

I'm thinking it's your husband...he's appeared on your site from time to time at least since I've been visiting.

Lynn, if you are referring to Mary...she and I have corresponded through email. Last time she emailed it was about a week ago. She said she wasn't sure if she'd continue her blog. If you comment on her blog, I'm sure she would email you back. UNLESS she's away from home.

What's wrong with Katrina? You asked if Plant Lady found her. She's not been to my blog in a while either.

I saw the update on Sharon via someone on Rachel's blog. I can't remember who it was but someone was in contact with Sharon by email.
