This Flicker came to the suet feeders over and over during our recent snowstorm. I loved taking different shots of this beautiful bird; he kind of looks like he has apple cheeks!
I loved how two images in the verse were appropriate for this photo!
During the past seven months I have frequently felt assailed; by depression, sadness, and even apathy. It has often taken everything I have to cry out to Him, “Give ear to me and hear my prayer”, and through it all He has heard me. I feel His love, sometimes through the kindness of a friend, or a listening ear, or just having someone sit with me while I cry.
6 I call on you, O God, for you will answer me;
give ear to me and hear my prayer.
7 Show the wonder of your great love,
you who save by your right hand
those who take refuge in you from their foes.
8 Keep me as the apple of your eye;
hide me in the shadow of your wings
9 from the wicked who assail me,
from my mortal enemies who surround me.”
