A to Z Blog Challenge 2015 – Bees, Butterflies and Birds

This year I decided to make a flower garden to woo bees and butterflies to join the birds that visit for their daily rations.

Bees are disappearing. That means honey can become scarce or non-existent. I use honey most of the time in my recipes, tea and coffee. So quite naturally I want to do what I can to keep Bees in business short of having beehives.

Butterflies are a wonder to me. I think, how can something that looks like a relative to a worm transform into an amazingly beautiful specimen. Those beautiful, colorful specimens need to take their place in my garden.

I also want to get some different birds other than the regulars to come. Most of the birds are brown ones. Blue, Yellow and Red ones would be a great additions. Let’s not forget Hummingbirds. They are amazing to look at as they flutter in mid-air as they sip on the juice I custom make for them.

The birds that come to my yard now no longer fly away when I go out to my patio to take pictures of them. I’m waiting to take a picture of a Hummingbird in mid-air.

Neighbors Bird

My neighbors have this beautiful  bird that sits on a perch on their patio. I snapped a few pictures of him while taking pictures of the one’s in my yard.

Once I get the garden growing and all the critters that I’ve invited start coming, I’ll be a happy camper when I’m sitting in the yard photographing and enjoying them.

A to Z Challenge – Angels

Angels are fascinating beings. Some people believe they exist and others believe they are a fantasy. I believe they exist and not because I read it in a book or heard stories about them.

So I want to share my perception of Angels.

There are different Angels with different assignments throughout the heavens and earth. Some minister to God in heaven and others minister to man on earth.

Angels are spirit beings that can manifest themselves as human beings when their assignment calls for that transition.

I’ve always believed there were Angels but I never gave much thought about where they were and what they looked like. At one point in my life I started asking The Lord to see my Angels that watch over me. The day came when my prayers were answered. I saw two enormous beings standing in front of my living room window conversing with each other. I don’t know if it was a natural or spiritual experience, but I do know what I saw. After that experience there was no way I could believe Angels are those chubby babies that sit on Jesus’ lap and shoulders.

Since I had that divine experience I’ve had many occasions to experience the presence of my Angels. I’ve also had revelations of how they protected me since I was a child. I am grateful to have Angel assistance in my life.

Have you had an encounter with an Angel?
