For in him we live and move, and have our being: as certain also of your own poets have said, For we are also his offspring. Acts 17: 28

Oh how an orioles in his way
Is a blessing to start our day
This fine bird Is God's offering...
To live the proof it is spring...

Poetry by me, AJP

I felt happy to see this beautiful blessing before we went for our walk ...My husband, puppy and I were walking to the mail box to pick up our newspaper as part of our daily exercise at the end of our long driveway when an acquaintance saw us and waved vigorously to us (with his eyes on us) and not seeing our mail box in the corner of the road and ran over it...He is lucky that he didn't roll his car over as the car went down the steep hill taking the mail box with him that he ran over again after it broke off the post. .the good news is that he didn't get hurt, and he didn't crash the car into us either.

Timing is everything:)...if I hadn't stopped to photograph the oriole before our walk, maybe the
accident of the mail box may not have happened but who knows maybe we'd have been crashed
into instead of the mail box because we would have been that much closer to it. Two ways to look at it:)

Please view in light for the full benefit...Thank you!

Thank you , JanElle Heather for the courtesy of the spotlight on 5-08-2014 and also for the
