Thankful Thursday and The Smallest Blessings

Today I am posting gratitude for blessings at Thankful Thursday and The Smallest Blessings.


Please join Laurie from ‘Women Taking a Stand’ who will be hosting Thankful Thursday in April.

And join The Southern Housewife for The Smallest Blessings. Check out her blog and see what its all about.







I am thankful for the joy that comes my way each day...


from watching the birds that come to visit our backyard...

and remind us that God made these creatures for our enjoyment...

and that the wonder of His creation leads us to seek the Creator, come closer to Him, and give Him glory.

"Notice the raven: they do not sow or reap; they have neither storehouse nor barn, yet God feeds them. How much more important are you than birds!" Luke 12:24

How beautiful! I really want to get a bird feeder for our backyard so I can enjoy the amazing birds as well

Can I be completely honest with you?? Why does it seem I'm the only one who doesn't like birds!!! I try, honestly, but all that ever happens around here is well, the after effect of having birds fly all over!! I am forever cleaning up after them!!! Sorry, but your pictures are very pretty. I do love hummingbirds and we have a feeder for a little friend who comes by often!!!

One thing that I love about springtime is the new flowers blooming and the birds chirping. It is a beautiful view of how God has placed beauty right before our eyes. And imagine how much more marvelous the golden streets will be. Thanks for joining us for TT this week! -Laurie

Beautiful post, Linda.

I love watching birds. Sure the seed husk makes a mess and there is poop on the feeders to clean off. But the pleasure of seeing them out-weighs all that :-)
