Resting in Him

I know I promised you more photos of birds I met along the way  on my journey home, but since I have been here at the cabin, I have had the opportunity to catch some beautiful scenery.

So I am going to share it instead. While here, I have also had some time to reflect on God's goodness to us in our times of need, whether it be financial need, physical need or emotional.
They all come under the promises of God. He is our Protector and Provider.

As I review my photos, I am in awe of the beauty our Father provides. I sometimes lay awake at night 'surfing' through my troubles,small as they are, cataloging and prioritizing them as to which needs 'my' attention first. How vain is this? My only priority should be to rest in Him, to trust in His love and to seek the path He has chosen for me to walk.
As I dwell on His Word, view His Wonders, and release my cares to Him, I will find peace.
"Cast all your anxiety on Him,because He cares for you. I Peter 5:7(NIV)

Psalm 91:4
He will cover you with His feathers and under His wings you will find refuge.

Psalm 32:7
You are my hiding place; You will protect me from trouble and surround me with songs of deliverance.



Psalm 48:9
Within your temple, O God,
we meditate on your unfailing love...

Friends I met along the way.

I have just returned from an extended vacation...actually my personal 'retirement party' for me!
I left Garden City August 2,driving to Crescent City, California to spend three months with my Dad, who was 89 yrs old on July 20. I left Crescent City on Oct 1 , arriving home on Oct 19th.
Along the way, I visited old school friends(we are all 'older' now) and family.
I think some of them would object to my posting their photos on the web, so I'll use some photos from some 'friends' I know won't object. Hope I can remember their names and where I met them. Enjoy!
One of the Yellow Legs family, not sure if Lesser or Greater.

I loved watching the Stellar Jays in Dad's yard

Somewhere near Lakeview, Oregon I saw this Northern Shoveler
,one of my favorites in the duck family.

The American White Pelican,Upper Klamath Lake, far from the ocean!!

And these were just on my first day out. I'll catch you up on some more of my 'feathered friends' on another day. God's wonders never cease!
