Rose-Breasted Grosbeak

God’s creation has the sweetest music of all. Here’s a stunning-looking bird from here in Wisconsin. I was reading about them today.

  1. Your blogs are so warm and comforting- like a hot cup of coffee on a snowy day!

  2. I love songbirds. Cardinals, redwing blackbirds, anything that chirps sweetly, I just love to listen to them. (I’ll pass on the crows.)

  3. Lisa, thank you! In a world such as we have now, I can’t think of something I’d rather be doing than providing a place to reflect on the beauty, peace and good things in life. We all need an “island of serenity” as my friend, Margaret Been, says it. The Hope Blog is mine.

    Carolyn, I agree about crows. Doubt if anybody likes them. Rats with wings. The raven is the largest of that species which includes the smaller crow, and every time I used to see crows, my older kids will remember me uttering the lines from Poe’s immortal Raven poem.

    Ghastly, grim, and ancient raven, wandering from the
    nightly shore.
    Tell me what thy lordly name is on the Night’s Pluton-
    ian shore.”
    Quoth the raven, “Nevermore.”

  4. Ingrid, Thanks for sharing the lovely song of the bird in this video. I don’t think I’ve seen that kind of bird in my area, but one of the things I love is some mornings when I wake to the sound of the birds singing outside. They seem to be praising God with their music and enjoyment of a new day, and it inspires me with a fresh gratitude to God for the simple, beautiful things in life. It is so sad that so many people are distracted in this high tech world and are oblivious to the beauty of His creation, and then miss out on a moment to reflect on the beauty of God Himself.
