...fled for refuge to lay hold upon the hope an anchor of the soul, both sure and steadfast, which entereth into that within the veil. Hebrew 6:18-19

The male Rose-breasted Grosbeak, a migratory bird, arrived here a few days ago...I loved it that he flew to the flowering crab apple tree this evening at 6:48 PM to rest awhile...I believe the wild birds feel a kinship with the blossoms as a peaceful refuge where they can feel safe and secure, hidden within. I shot this through the window and I am glad he stayed still for me to get a focus on it.

Happy mother's Day for the mother's on this site, for the families who celebrate the day with their loved ones and to the mothers who gave their families a peaceful refuge through their souls, hearts and minds when they were alive that lives on in memories after death.
