Branches, Birds and Bats

Saturday the 22nd of August and our word today is branch/branches.

Psalm 104:10-13 (ESV)

10 You make springs gush forth in the valleys;
    they flow between the hills;
11 they give drink to every beast of the field;
    the wild donkeys quench their thirst.
12 Beside them the birds of the heavens dwell;
    they sing among the branches.
13 From your lofty abode you water the mountains;
    the earth is satisfied with the fruit of your work.

From Maristella:

“I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.”John 15:5/NIV.

From Happy One:

Jeremiah 23:5 KJV

Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, that I will raise unto David a righteous BRANCH, and a King shall reign and prosper, and shall execute judgement and justice in the earth.

If you have a verse to share please add it in the comments and I’ll copy it here.

And our resident umbrella bat returned.

Have a nice Saturday!

Butterfly, Bat and Boy

These four shots are of the same butterfly, the upper side and the underside.

On Friday afternoon we opened up our patio umbrellas and were surprised to find this visitor. It was asleep but because it’s sleeping spot was disturbed it started moving and after about an hour it flew around the opened umbrella and then flew off into the woods. I don’t mind having a few bats around since they eat mosquitoes.

Jaymison and his sister had some fun in our backyard on Friday evening while Dear and Dan put up two more steel panels on the shop roof. Sprinklers were a delight and we enjoyed some time on the tricycle.

Addy and her daddy spent some time kicking soccer balls into the soccer goal.

We’ll be babysitting these two on Saturday morning so mommy and daddy can have some free time to move about freely for a few hours. That means I won’t be moving about freely visiting blogs. I’ll catch up later.
