Blue Jays - (Not the baseball kind)

Blue Jays baseball has been especially fun to watch the last couple of years since our team is actually GOOD. (They almost made it to the World Series last year.) But this post isn't about them...

It's about a real Blue Jay that has been hanging around my yard. Here he is, sitting on the fence. If you haven't seen a Blue Jay in real life, they are actually quite large. They are also a very aggressive bird and usually chase other birds away.

I'm not really a bird lover, per se, but these guys are beautiful.

And another...

And on the heels of the last post, here is another proof copy. This one has me especially excited (not sure why, exactly, but it's true!)

This is a little prayer journal that I was unexpectedly inspired to create this summer called 'Thirty Days of Targeted Prayer: A Journaling Tool To Boost Your Prayer Commitment'. Here's a little blurb from the intro:

"I want to pray more. Really, I do. But my good intensions don't always result in action. time can slip away, my mind can wander, or I just don't remember all the things I want to bring before the Lord at any given prayer session. I created this little journal first and foremost for myself because i was tired of re-creating it every couple of months in one of those generic journals."

Proverbs 38 Woman

This is what a friend called my daughter recently and it made me laugh. My daughter is one of those people who is always busy. She is a super organized and productive person - a stay at home mom who sews, cooks, cans, gardens and usually enters every category at the fall fair. (Last year she cleaned up on prizes!)

It reminds me of the good advice in Ecclesiastics 9:10 that says,
Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with all your might, for in the realm of the dead, where you are going, there is neither working nor planning nor knowledge nor wisdom.
