3 little birdies

attitude birds choice comfort compassion education Hope Joan Winifred mind food spiritual food things i learned worries

26 Observe intently the birds of heaven; they do not sow seed or reap or gather into storehouses, yet your heavenly Father feeds them. […] (Matthew 6:26)

To the animals he gives food,To the young ravens that call out for it. (Psalm 147:9)

An observation:  Do birds worry?!  No, they are busy eating, singing, flying, soaring–being birdies, lol 🙂

Worrying is paralyzing and damaging!… (and gets ya no where.)

“when” human“kind” (chooses compassion) …there is enough for everyone (to share)…🙂

the earth is rich!… full of plenty to sustain/maintain life… for birds, for people… for all-fellow-fragile-life!!… “when” man”cruel” selfishly mismanages Earth… misuses resources/abuses power…causing poverty, famine, hunger… and not just for food.

My positive outlook/Hope:  ultimately/eventually everything will be alright… with compassion (and Divine Intervention) education!

enjoyed this past reading(s)…

The Bible makes many references to birds, often to teach valuable lessons. For example, concerning the ostrich and its incredible speed, God said to a man named Job: “When she rises up and flaps her wings, she laughs at the horse and at its rider.”*The ostrich is the largest living bird, and it is the fastest runner, able to reach speeds of about 45 miles an hour (72 km/h) for short bursts.  (Job 39:13, 18) God also asked Job: “Is it by your understanding that the falcon soars, . . . or is it at your order that an eagle flies upward?” (Job 39:26, 27) The lesson? Birds perform their feats without any help from us. Their abilities testify to God’s wisdom, not ours. [excerpted “Observe Intently the BirdsAwake! 2014]

What i’ve come “to learn” through Bible study/practice (through the years)…is putting my personal preferences aside… and attempting to do “God’s” Will (and not just live by my own selfish will/desire/limited understanding/perspective of things/life)… aka living to the best of my abilities in harmony with the unfolding, progressive Divine Purpose… aka compassion, etc…things turn out alright & PEACE is found!:)

My experience: “there is more happiness in giving than there is in receiving.”

Check it out IF You🙂 choose…(further reading and research)…matthew/6/

Hungry Birdies (1)

birds Breathing-Fragile-Life Joan Winifred

Good Morning Hungry Birdies:) aka Respected Readers!:)
My Mom/parents are bird watchers… and feeders and they actually have variety of birds feeding out of their hands in their back yard (as well as bird feeders/bird houses)… it’s amazing to see! My Mom is the forest creature whisperer… it’s like the scene from vintage Snow White when all the woodland creatures come out of hiding…are attracted and come to her presence… squirrels, bunnies, moles, turtles, etc.. . Various visitors daily…including a Bob Cat in their back yard along with a huge wild pig passing through one day-lol:)

Cardinals, Blue Jays and Scrub Jays… among their feathered friends/pets/family!:)

Spiritual hunger is top priority for me and my family…(this has to be a short post for now; heading to my parents’ place soon… for art and other work) and looking forward to Bunny TV. That’s what I call relaxing in their lanai looking out at the bunnies, creatures, etc. I LOVE IT!!:).. it’s peaceful/quiet/respite time for me.

Here is a small sprinkling of seeds…enjoy:)

“A law he set in Israel . . . that they might set their confidence in God himself.”—PSALM 78:5, 7.

JEHOVAH God provided the Torah as part of the long-range purpose that he set out in Eden—to restore and bless the entire human family.

What laws did God give before the Law given to Moses?

God prohibited murder and the eating of blood, among other directives. (Genesis 9:3-5) These decrees emphasize the sacredness of life and are binding on all mankind, Noah’s descendants.

Where does Abraham fit into God’s purpose?

God told faithful Abraham: “By means of your seed [one of his descendants] all nations of the earth will certainly bless themselves.” (Genesis 22:18) God would use that “seed” to fulfill his purpose.

How does the Law fit into God’s purpose?

In connection with the Law given to Moses, God made a covenant with the nation of Israel. By keeping that covenant, Israel would become “a kingdom of priests and a holy nation.”—Exodus 19:5, 6.

How did the Law benefit all mankind?

God used the nation of Israel as an example of the blessings that result from supporting his rulership. God’s Law was designed to guide and protect Israel, in order for them to become “a light of the nations.” (Isaiah 42:6) For Israel to become such a blessing, they needed to follow God’s written Law.—Deuteronomy 11:26, 27.

How could a nation of imperfect people carry out God’s Law perfectly?

Despite their best intentions, imperfect people would always fall short, even as Moses did. (Numbers 12:3; 20:10-12) Nevertheless, God preserved ancient Israel in order to fulfill his purpose. [excerpted: How Can You Have a Happy Life?, Section 12, Why Did God Provide the Torah?]

Please come back for (2)….:)

Taking Turns (at both poles?)

birds Breathing-Fragile-Life education insights Joan Winifred logic never giving up! science & spirituality wisdom

or is it?…(patiently) waiting (my) turn…

“During their lifetime of about 30 years, terns may travel well over 1.5 million miles (2.4 million km). That is equal to three or four round-trips to the moon! “This is a mind-boggling achievement for a bird of just over 100 grams [3.5 ounces],” said a researcher. What is more, because arctic terns experience the summers at both poles, they see “more daylight each year than any other creature,” states the book Life on Earth: A Natural History.”

Their pattern and path is an indirect s shape…

“No matter where they began their migration, the arctic terns flew an indirect route. As shown in the illustration, a common Atlantic Ocean route took an S shape. The reason? The birds simply take advantage of prevailing wind system.” [excerpts article Awake! 2017 No. 4 The Amazing Arctic Tern]

Being (deliberately?) indirect can be quite effective/efficient, eh?! 🙂 (and quite the achievement!;)

(Don’t Ya just love birds/these tiny amazing birds?!)

So, the next time i think being more direct equates to getting more accomplished; …i’ll ride the prevailing wind! -lol;)

“IT WAS long believed that arctic terns flew about 22,000 miles (35,200 km) on their journey from the Arctic region to Antarctica and back. Recent studies, however, revealed that the birds actually fly much farther.” [Awake 2017 No. 4 excerpt]
