The View From My Front Porch

One of my favorite places to be is our front porch. I spent most of Sunday afternoon there - pretending I was a photographer for National Geographic. I got lots and lots of footage of hummingbirds drinking sweetly from the feeder and dive-bombing one another. However it takes forever to download videos, so you will have to be content with just this one.(I know - major disappointment!)

I am convinced it is a very good thing that hummingbirds aren't big. They could do some serious damage! One feisty little guy kept hovering closer and closer to my face. I am embarrassed to confess that I swatted at him with my book. I was afraid he was going to poke me a good one!(Not to worry. He was way too fast for me to even come close to hitting him. It was merely a defensive move.)

So here is the result of my handiwork. I cannot help but note that the Lord is an amazing Creator - just amazing!


P.S. Thank you again for your continued prayers. We've had a little bit of a set-back, but we see the doctor tomorrow and are praying all will be well.
