“There’s a bird on the roof.”
I nervously stepped out the truck and looked on top of it. There sat a bird much bigger then I expected. A beautiful pigeon with purple and green on its neck. I slowly reached for my phone, so I could try to get a quick photo. It moved a little, but stuck around. Then it started lifting one of its feet up and down like it was saying “My foot, My foot”, so I decided to see if I could pick it up and check on it.
Success, but I couldn’t really look at its foot because it grasped my fingers with them.
Some guy at the gas station asked about it cause he’d never seen someone be able to pick one up. We tried to check it out again, but then boxed it and took it to the job site with us to let it go.
It was having some issues in the box so i had to help it stand and stay still which mostly consisted of it grasping onto my hand. At the job I put it out on some grass and it did this weird circle walk like it was falling down. Tried a few more times and the same thing happened except it climbed up on my foot to stop. Boxed it again, but it couldn’t stand up, so we made it a makeshift fencing in the grass. Luckily we had some actual fencing in the truck.
Stuck it in there and made it a water bowl and then got back to work. After a bit I had a break and I went to check on it. As I was walking over to it, it took flight. It circled a round a few times and tried to land on the power lines and missed. He made another two rounds and then landed. The whole time I was trying to call it back, he he.
It stuck around on the power lines for the rest of the day just watching us.
It made me feel really good this mini adventure.
He was my friend, but 4 a second :)
I named it Pigey :)
It was a much needed encounter, no matter how fleeting.
“Hey! get dressed!”
“We’re going on an adventure!”
These are the words my sister-in-law heard as I ushered her into my plan. I finally decided to really look into Geocatching and was surprised to see some were right down the road from me! I knew too, that I wouldn’t really know what it was till I tried & found one. Which I was right. Once you find one I think it gives you much more confidence!
I was so lost. She asked me exactly what we were doing and my answer was “that’s what we’re trying to find out”. Checked out 3 different spots and did a quick scan of another. Couldn’t find, well actually we found some stuff, just not what we were looking for and the GPS app i was using would not cooperate, otherwise I think it would’ve been much easier.
We returned home a little bummed and I did some more research and thinking and then decided to go back to the first place which I deemed easiest to find with no coordinance. Lo and behold with some patience, clues, and deductive reasoning I found it!!!!
And got bit by ants : /
So I have found an adventure for myself! But for now I’m having to look for catches that should be fairly easy to find without a GPS, but once I get one…. O MAN! It’s on! I think I may have an addiction :) he he.
I advise if you can, to try it out. I think it’s going to be a great way to see places and things I wouldn’t normally. Plus with it so wide-spread I’ll always have an interesting thing to accomplish in any place we’re visiting and that’s very exciting!
Also can’t wait to leave some :)
(The rest of the day turned out pretty adventurous as well:)
Scripture tells us that Jesus is the WORD made flesh, so whatever GOD speaks is Jesus. And if GOD and Jesus are one, then what one says so does the other.
It also informs us that everything Jesus said and did is not all recorded, for it would fill too many books. So maybe he did, but someone clearly pointed out to me that Jesus’ main audience was the jews. They all ready knew everything written in the Old Testament, so there was no need in repeating it.
I see though, that he did speak on it every time he spoke about marriage, because it’s always clear about the sexes.
For example Mark 10:6-9 Really jumped out at me about it.
6: But from the beginning of the creation God made them male & female…..9:What therefore God hath joined together, let no man put asunder (separate).
That’s pretty clear to me.
Then scripture goes on to tell us that all men have sinned and fall short of HIS glory. Pride, hate, thievery, love of money, idols, selfishness, etc. It all separates us from God,
so I ask?
Why should they get off any easier than us?
Children of The Most High God. Raise your voice! Cry to the Maker of your souls. Sing the praise of HIS Glory. The rocks sing, the stars chime, and HIS people sit still mouths sewn shut.
Injustice cries the sun, shame screams the oceans. You will sing of insignificant achievements that you acquire in your own strength, yet the praises to the ONE who gives strength unspeakable is not heard of the lips of those that claim HIM as Lord.
I see a cry rising in the hearts of the true followers of HIS Name. The sound brings shame to the sun, moon, and stars making all of creation sing louder to match HIS Majesty and the Lord of all the creation that is singing begins to lift up His voice with a sound so glorious men cannot hear. The earth trembles with exaltation unto HIS Name, the spirit of men who hear the warning is quickened and all shake in one accord to the living God and the Lord begins to brag of the praise HE receives from the broken and shamed. These are my people, HE begins to say. They hear me and respond likewise. I will lift them up so all can hear the sound of conviction ring through the heavens. My spirit will fill them with power and strength. None that hear can deny the glorious work.
Come out Brothers and Sisters,
Mothers and Fathers,
Elders and Young ones
Come out from Babylon, the False Church
Come Home to your Real
Brothers and Sisters,
Mothers and Fathers,
Elders and Young ones
Come back to the Real Church,
to Real Love.
Come be the Bride again
you think yourself capable of avenging a fellow creation? i think not, for can you number the sands of the sea. can you say to this star be removed and to another bring forth new light?
how can you deem yourselves worthy as a redeemer when you are the accused by all creation. no you have not the wisdom to pass judgement in this matter for you are a fellow creation.
i hear cries of justice and cries of mercy. who then cries unto me.
you say this cannot be justice. look and you shall see the pain and suffering what form of justice is this and whom shall call this mercy?
but i say who are you to say what justice is. do you see all the makings of this time or can you change the very heart of the earth?
you know not the meaning of mercy for if a man toils in a ditch and asks not for your help you might try to help and if he spits at you, you might linger still but if he pulls a knife to your neck you will leave him to his toils.
i have not done so i have come to you at a time when none cried for me to a people who spit at my face to a people who were suppose to serve me but slew me. still i remained among you and even now i linger hoping for the few who might see the great mercy i have provided. this is the grace that has saved the few, but many think it free because they know not the meaning of grace nor the meaning of mercy.
it is not free it is a call to servanthood to pass from one master to the master.
for who shall be a slave and being beaten all of his days. when a new master purchase him and give him good work without brutality this is unjust you purchased me to free me from my prior master now you must let me go to ensure you are a man of mercy.
none in that place shall be treated kindly for you are bought to make sure you have a good master not one of evil. and not that you might proclaim yourself a master. for you were created as a servant to one but master over many. how dare you proclaim you are no servant. i will insure you to be a servant and take your masterhood away. now you will serve those you had rule of.
but those whom embrace servanthood shall become the master of all you once ruled.
I’ve got a challenge set out before me
An answer I’ve been waiting to hear
A sight long unseen
Life long friendships obtained
Wisdom and knowledge and a cup over flowing
Confirmation and healing
A most beautiful story
All with in a 3day period
Thank you LORD for our stay at Fellowship of the Martyrs!
I believe that Thanksgiving may be the only true Christian-American Holiday.
Every time one was officially held by the govern of the president it was always for giving thanks to GOD. In a time of need of wise advise I decided to share a small bit of their words.
George Washington – “also that we may then unite in most humbly offering our prayers and supplications to the great Lord and Ruler of Nations and beseech Him to pardon our national and other transgressions; to enable us all, whether in public or private stations, to perform our several and relative duties properly and punctually; to render our National Government a blessing to all the people by constantly being a Government of wise, just, and constitutional laws, discreetly and faithfully executed and obeyed; to protect and guide all sovereigns and nations (especially such as have shown kindness to us), and to bless them with good governments, peace, and concord; to promote the knowledge and practice of true religion and virtue, and the increase of science among them and us; and, generally to grant unto all mankind such a degree of temporal prosperity as He alone knows to be best. ”
Abraham Lincoln – “Now, therefore, I, Abraham Lincoln, President of the United States, do hereby appoint and set apart the last Thursday in November next as a day which I desire to be observed by all my fellow-citizens, wherever they may then be, as a day of thanksgiving and praise to Almighty God, the beneficent Creator and Ruler of the Universe. And I do further recommend to my fellow-citizens aforesaid that on that occasion they do reverently humble themselves in the dust and from thence offer up penitent and fervent prayers and supplications to the Great Disposer of Events for a return of the inestimable blessings of peace, union, and harmony throughout the land which it has pleased Him to assign as a dwelling place for ourselves and for our posterity throughout all generations.”
And now from the woman who petitioned 40 years to see a National Day of thanks and is a big part, maybe the part, in why we have it. (Yea, I didn’t know about her either) -“Let this day, from this time forth, as long as our Banner of Stars floats on the breeze, be the grand THANKSGIVING HOLIDAY of our nation, when the noise and tumult of worldliness may be exchanged for the laugh of happy children, the glad greetings of family reunion, and the humble gratitude of the Christian heart. This truly American Festival falls, this year on the twenty-fifth day of this month.”
