Birds of a Feather

One of my 'good morning' friends. God's beauty is around us always.

Does anyone know what this little critter is? I can't find it in my bird book but it sure said a big 'howdy' to me the other day as it lighted at my feeder.

********************************
On Thursday I once again head off to the London Cancer Clinic to face the music. My 6 month check-up looms near. What is it that gives me that heartburn and sinking feeling? Memories? Fear? Futility?
I am wondering what the learned professionals will toss my way this time around. I am thinking that the song I hear may be the same old tune, so I'm going to stay positive and focussed on the things I can do something about.
Hearing the story about how there isn't anything anyone can do, and there is a fifty/fifty chance of my ovarian cancer returning, won't floor me this time. I'm ready. I'm leaving the details up to God. Afterall, He did say He would take care of the sweetly seranading birds, right? So I am thinking that if He can take such good care of those little winged critters, then I think He will take good care of me, too. x

The bird at the feeder may be a grosbeak. Funny...I've only seen one in my entire life and yet the name popped into my head. At least my brain is still working. I'll be thinking of you Thursday. God bless!

Praying for you today!
I am enjoying a cup of tea right now, remembering how the last three month appointment went for you and how fortunate I was to be in London to share in the "after" with you. I am hoping that you continue to feel God right beside you during this one too.
Hugs from Goderich,
