Refreshed

   As I watched these Mallard & Domestic ducks on my recent walk at Mount Trashmore Park, I too was refreshed, and reminded of this poem by Elizabeth Cheney: 

Overheard in the Orchard

Said the robin to the sparrow,
"I would really like to know
Why those anxious human beings
rush around and worry so."

Said the sparrow to the robin,
"Friend, I think that it must be
That they have no Heavenly Father
such as cares for you and me."

Unexpected



This red fox was not only an unexpected, but a first time sighting on my recent 6:00am field trip with the     
Virginia Beach Audubon Society.  All birds stayed too distant to capture.
Not this fox. It remained close and posed graciously for all.
I know every bird on the mountains, and all the animals of the field are mine. ~ Psalm 50:12
