Summer's End

Well, summer is officially coming to an end for me. The hummingbirds are migrating south and we're hosting a batch of them as they stop and tank up before continuing their journey. Every year at this time we have a feeding frenzy and it's amazing to watch. I was just standing out there, listening to the whirring of their wings as they zoomed past me and fought over the feeder. We had 6-8 hummers at one time perched and eating—after they had worked out their differences. LoL.

I love seeing the hummers. They're some of God's coolest creations, at least in my book, and I hate seeing them leave. All summer I enjoy watching them, and I miss them all winter and wait for them all spring, cheering when I spot the first ones.

The hummers know when to move on, and they do. What about me? Am I tuned in to God so I can feel the change and know when to move on? I want to be. I don't want to stubbornly stay and end up shivering and shaking through a cold night I was never meant to be in.

Lord, help me know when to spread my wings and fly, and lead me in the path You have for me. Please, give me courage and help me to follow Your prompting and trust in You. Thank You for being my refuge. I love You, Lord...in Your Son's name, amen.


He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High
Will abide in the shadow of the Almighty.
I will say to the LORD, "My refuge and my fortress,
My God, in whom I trust!"
For it is He who delivers you from the snare of the trapper
And from the deadly pestilence.
He will cover you with His pinions,
And under His wings you may seek refuge;
His faithfulness is a shield and bulwark.
Psalm 91:1-4

  1. Oh, am I in the middle of this! (oh, and go read LaLee's blog from Saturday!)It's so easy to just stay where you are because it's "comfortable," even if God is moving you on. Praying I will hear His leading and FOLLOW it!

  2. Me, too, Peej. It's hard to get moving when I know I should...hard to decide to accept change. I love the verse you selected today! Very comforting.

    Patty,

    I love Hummingbirds. As a little girl they were the equivalent of oh, let's say, unicorns to me! lol.

    One of my favorite things about your blog - aside from your Christ infused words - is your pictures.

    I love them.

    Huggles! : ) Kristen

  4. Great post. I love hummingbirds, too, and need to get one more batch of nectar out there to fuel them up. That's important for our journey, too: plenty of fuel, which comes from time with the Lord.

    So glad I stumbled upon your blog today. :-)
