Even Mr. Cardinal is thrilled 
to see that the goldfish 
have survived the winter!

Last summer, a dear friend was playing around 
with crocheting different types of squares. 
She then gave me the squares to play with!
This is the front and back of one of the sweaters
that I made with them. 
Caron Simply Soft yarn 
was used throughout. 

Give us aid against the enemy,
for the help of man is worthless.
With God we will gain the victory, 
and He will trample down our enemies.
Ps. 108:12-13

Thought I'd give the flock a 'boredom buster'.
It lasted about 10 min!! 
Needless to say, they LOVED it! 
Just wish it would have kept them busy a little longer!

So happy to see this fellow at our feeder!
The singing of the Red-Wing just thrills my heart!

He will judge the world in righteousness
and the peoples in His truth.
