Happy last day of November!
When shooting photos the other day, I was struck by the contrast of the naked trees against the sky. Then the birds came to rest a spell before continuing their daily hunt for manna.
Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?Matthew 6:26
May you find your manna today and every day.

In anticipation of Monday’s “Movin’ and Groovin” song, I decided that “Weekend Wisdom” would go to the birds today.
Just wait till you see what I have in store for your weekly exercise, mood picker upper song on Monday. 😉
I never saw a wild thing sorry for itself. A small bird will drop frozen dead from a bough without ever having felt sorry for itself.
D. H. Lawrence
Be as a bird perched on a frail branch that she feels bending beneath her, still she sings away all the same, knowing she has wings.
It’s best to have failure happen early in life. It wakes up the Phoenix bird in you so you rise from the ashes.
God gives every bird his worm, but He does not throw it into the nest.
P. D. James
It is 9:15 p.m. Eastern time on Friday and the birds are merrily singing their song. It is anything but a lullaby. So I decided to find bird quotes for “Weekend Wisdom.”
The first two pictures were taken at my former job. This beauty was singing up a storm one day. The last one is a bird in his nest on my neighbor’s fence.
I once had a sparrow alight upon my shoulder for a moment, while I was hoeing in a village garden, and I felt that I was more distinguished by that circumstance than I should have been by any epaulet I could have worn.
~Henry David Thoreau
Have you ever observed a humming-bird moving about in an aerial dance among the flowers – a living prismatic gem…. it is a creature of such fairy-like loveliness as to mock all description.
~W.H. Hudson, Green Mansions
God gives every bird its food, but He does not throw it into its nest.
God loved the birds and invented trees. Man loved the birds and invented cages.
~Jacques Deval, Afin de vivre bel et bien
There is nothing in which the birds differ more from man than the way in which they can build and yet leave a landscape as it was before.
~Robert Lynd, The Blue Lion and Other Essays
