A doe!

I was going to wash dishes but before I started, I  looked up to see a deer right outside the window!  I got a picture of her from the kids bedroom.  She stayed around for 5 days hiding in the bush and walking around softly. She didn't seem afraid  of us at all.  😁

Hummingbird nest

Many years ago, I remember that my husband always saw the hummingbirds come to the feeder early in the morning. I rarely saw them. I wanted to see them! I remember praying about it. One day,  a hummingbird built a nest right in front of our window!  We watched her for two days!  She worked non stop! She smoothed down the softest materials she could find with her little body. She even used spider like web threads. The next day she laid a tiny white egg and another one on the following day! I was so thankful to the Lord! This was so much better than just seeing the hummingbird for a couple minutes!

"...they believed the scripture..."

“Be of good cheer.”

“When therefore He was risen from the dead,  His disciples remembered that He had said this unto them: and they believed the scripture, and the word which Jesus had said. (John 2:22)

The believer’s heart is waiting for the Lord from heaven
(1 Thessalonians 1:10).

The believer’s eyes are watching for His appearing (Hebrews 10:25).

The believer’s hands are working, abounding in “every good work”
(2 Corinthians 9:8).

The believer’s feet  are walking - in love (Ephesians 5:2).

The believer’s ears are listening.  Jesus said, “Hear, and understand” (Matthew 15:10).

  The believer’s mouth is glorifying God.  “With one mind and one mouth glorify God” (Romans 15:6).

Three nights and three days...

It has been said, that because our Lord died on Friday at the ninth hour, was buried that day, and rose again from the dead on Sunday, the first day of the week, that, therefore, it is not true to say He was "three days and three nights in the heart of the earth," as our Lord declared that the Son of man would be. (Matt. 12:40.)
But let it be observed, that according to the Jewish mode of calculating time, there is no inaccuracy in this statement. In our day man has changed the scriptural order of almost everything possible, and instead of speaking of an evening and morning being a day, modern Gentiles say that a day consists of a morning and evening, and so calculate accordingly. And if the Jews reckoned any part of a day, as part of a night and a day (for the evening and the morning in Genesis 1 made a day), the alleged inaccuracy wholly disappears. For Friday, up to six o'clock, would be spoken of as one night and day, Friday evening and Saturday morning another night and day, and thus the difficulty is removed.
