Three baby Raccoons

Psalm 63:3-4’Because thy loving kindness is better than life, my lips shall praise thee.Thus will I bless thee while I live: I will lift up my eyes unto the Lord.’

I am heading up north to visit family this morning (will do the best I can at social distancing)- looking forward to celebrating Ruthie’s (my sister) birthday today! I am so blessed to have so many amazing sisters in my life…. as well as my extended family and friends.. I truly feel VERY blessed…have a wonderful day….

Crane family

Matthew 25:39-40
When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’
“The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’

The sun is shining and it will be a beautiful day-even though warm….
I already went out with my camera and while my Crane is still sitting on the nest.. I saw this Crane family in the field… not the best picture.. but it was fun to see…..
have a wonderful day!!

Northern Flickers

John 1:14

‘The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.’

I pray you have a week filled with wonder…


Mark 10:14-16
… “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these. Truly I tell you, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it.” And he took the children in his arms, placed his hands on them and blessed them.’

Majestic horses

O Lord, our Lord, how majestic is thy name in all the earth! Psalms 8:1 and Psalms 8:9

It is so interesting how this Psalm is repeated in the same Psalm-exactly… at the beginning and at the end….

These horses are majestic to me! Such amazing beautiful creatures…


For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. John 3:16

A favorite bible verse for sure! I think this is the first verse I ever learned!! I had great teachers growing up… Ada was our Sunday school superintendent.. and like a second Mom to many of us… 🙂

Deer by Grave

Joshua 1:9
“Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.”

Posting this picture because it is an unusual picture…. I have to say it brings comfort to me…. I took this picture on one of my trips up to Park Rapids to visit with Ruthie and Jerry… I always have my camera with me.. and pull over to the side of the road (or turn around) if something catches my eye… not a sight you see often….

Mama and ducklings

Romans 1:16 ‘For I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God that brings salvation to everyone who believes: first to the Jew, then to the Gentile.’

What a beautiful day today…. I have already been out to check on my sand crane… it is so fun standing and watching the little pond.. so much life that is going on right in this small area…today I saw a mama and papa duck.. and their little babies… it was so cool to watch as they flew into the pond.. I thought.. no babies there.. and then they started quacking and all these little babies came swimming from the weeds…. I would have never seen them… (they were hiding pretty good)… it was very cool…
