Revived

You make me whole

Nothing’s too hard for you

My heart’s your home

You’re closer than I’ve ever known.

When on my own

I know I’m not alone

You give me hope

When shadows come you light my way.

Trusting you has been hard

I thought I knew better

You gave me eyes to see.

When I sleep

You give me dreams that come alive.

Pre-warnings

Before they happen in my life

You give me chances

You provide

The way, the way, that I’ll survive.

Heaven is here

You’re building through my being

As I draw near

I see perfection reappear.

Now I know just how far

You have come to change my heart

You gave me ears to hear.

I love you

But I know you loved me first

You give me

Everything that works.

I just wanna know you more

I just wanna know you more.

Show me the way

Show me the next footsteps to take

This ain’t a game

This is a war

On a spiritual plane.

Ready my heart

Give me your strength

Teach me I pray.

Snow Crochet

fender snow

Today it snowed! He is very comfortable in the snow. We got to enjoy a little walk later on in the evening. I stayed in most of the day and watched the world go by. Birds are amazing; they adapt to the weather. I saw many that flew and soared with the wind and prayed they would find rest. It looked exhausting.

It was Onyx’s first time feeling the snow. As I opened the door she ran towards it as usual as she loves the garden, but she stopped so quickly and observed until I decided it was time to greet the others.

wag 2

We were visited by three bird species today; Pigeons, Starlings and a Wagtail. I was focused on the Wagtail a lot as it is the newest visitor. I always see them walking so fast that their legs start blurring or flitting incessantly at vehicle mirrors trying to catch insects and today one was in my garden!

wag 3

The little Starling has visited for a couple of days and I can tell which one it is because it doesn’t fly away when I open/close the door unlike the others of its kind (watch this space). The regulars perch and wait.

starling

I also started crocheting again recently and today I made a little panel for one of our windows. It isn’t exactly like the pattern; I added more rounds and stretched it into a diamond shape to make it fit but I like the result.

I didn’t think about it at the time but it really fits with the snowy theme of the day.
