Red-Winged Love Note

The Lord your God is with you,
the Mighty Warrior who saves.
He will take great delight in you;
in his love he will no longer rebuke you,
but will rejoice over you with singing. 
– Zephaniah 3:17

You might remember that I love red-winged blackbirds.

They are God’s reminder to me of His care, and it’s like a hug when I see or hear them.

Last week I had to travel to undergo a test. I had to drink what is optimistically called a “smoothie” before the test. It’s actually more like radioactive paint. Yummy, right?

My tummy thought so, too. I have car sickness on a good day. Imagine my eagerness to climb into the passenger seat that morning. I really needed a sighting of a red-winged blackbird, badly.

I’m hoping… oh, so hoping…
that you’ll join me over at Rest Ministries today.

    • The test results came back good, Deb! Thank you for the prayers! Love you. Heart Hugs, Shelly <3

  1. Amen! to your test results, firstly! Red-winged Blackbirds are such a blessing to see and hear for me as well. I just love the sound they make all together…like falling water, but coming from the trees. The ones that come to South Texas in the winter don’t seem to have such a large shoulder band of color. It is much narrower. I wonder if the difference is the season as colors on some birds are different in different seasons.??? No matter, they are God’s creation however they look!!
