It is good that a man should both hope and quietly wait for the salvation of the Lord...
Lamentations 4:27

We all live on hope and anticipation. Here I am with my hands extended trying to coax a Chickadee in the tree to hop on my fingers and eat the sunflower seeds in my hands...I promise you before the year is over I'll have Chickadees eating out of my hands:) Just as I shot this self portrait the sun started to set in the west and lit on the side of the house. It was 34 °F and clear today for the temperature and a lot of the snow has melted. A footnote to this is on Feb. 24th a Chickadee did come to eat out of my left hand. I shot the picture with my right hand.. You will see it in the Fabulous theme. It also came to eat from my husband's hand and I posted that picture in Title Me.

    I know that the chickadees will land on your hand and eat out of it before too long if you keep getting them used to you. It would be such a thrill to have one land on a hand and eat out of it!!! Great SP for this 47th day.

    Andrea, I like your Bible verse from Lamentations that goes well with this photo with your hands reaching out and what makes it more awesome is the sun going down with it's reflection on the window behind you. Blessings from Bonnie
