Protect me


I have been eagerly awaiting the arrival of the little birds migrating north for the winter.  I thought of God's protection in our vulnerability when I looked at these tiny birds.

I think this is an Eastern Yellow Robin. I wonder whether we will see the Red Robins this year.

Reflection:
Psalm 64:1
Hear me, my God, as I voice my complaint;
protect my life from the threat of the enemy.

  1. The background in this resembles a watercolor. The robins have been busy here this year.

  2. He/she is a beautiful little bird. I have never before known there was a yellow robin! I only know the red robins. Now I wonder if there are any other colors...

    1. Sara, I have seen yellow, pink and red robins in the garden. Though none of them are frequent visitors.

  4. Yes, I suppose such a little migrating bird would be vulnerable. May God protect it (and us) under the shadow of His wings.

  5. what a precious little yellow robin! i've never
    seen or heard of one before. it tickled me
    to hear you say "coming north for the winter,"
    because up here, all the little birds fly SOUTH
    for the winter.

    topsy turvy world.

    1. Lea, I find it hard to think of orienting my house to the south to pick up the sun. Early settlers here built their houses back to front for our climate because they couldn't get it into their heads either.

    1. I don't think I know their song, though I have been hearing a lot of different songs in the garden lately and not time to check out what is making them.

  9. There were many many EYRs in O'Reilly's when I was up there two year ago. They would come down and sit on an eye-level branch. Very endearing ... and with a melodious song. Alannah saw a Noisy Miner in operation on the garage roof this morning, just about a cat's head. Alannah was entranced. The cat was not. All Alannah could say was 'noisy, noisy'. We are learning noisy/quiet and hand/fist.
