“Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?” Matthew 6:26
This past winter I put up a bird feeder. I’ve discovered that bird watching is marvelous fun.
Here’s my birdfeeder and one of the woodpeckers that frequents my backyard.
Last year I tried over and over again to get a photo of one of these guys. Every time I got out my camera, he would fly away. Although I did get a picture, I didn’t get close enough to show the red cap and the distinct markings down his back.
I also put up a hummingbird feeder. Here is a photo. A cute little hummingbird is helping himself to the nectar.
Isn’t it marvelous to see how God cares for the birds and how that shows God’s care for us?
After serving six years in prison for the false charge of manslaughter in the death of his wife, Kurt Jansen must overcome a world of bitterness if he wants to start a new life. But his first priority is securing a restoration job to pay a private investigator to find the real killer and a lawyer to get his kids back.
Hiring a convicted wife-killer isn’t what kind-hearted Molly Finnerty bargains for as part of the prison ministry she supports. However, she begins to believe Kurt’s claim of innocence and gradually finds a great deal to like about him—perhaps more to like than she should.
Can they overcome the past and find forgiveness and love?
