“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.

Thanksgiving Proclamations

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.”
