But the LORD said unto Samuel, Look not on his countenance, or on the height of his stature; because I have refused him: for the LORD seeth not as man seeth; for man looketh on the outward appearance, but the LORD looketh on the heart. –1 Samuel 16:7

This post was inspired by Yassy. She wrote a poem about spring titled “spring’s realm”. She writes lots of beautiful poetry, and its one of the thing that draws me to her blog.
This particular poem mentioned hummingbirds, which prompted me to comment about how hummingbirds act so crazy over food, and feeders. They will fight, and dive bomb each other, and chase each other off the feeders. As if these little things could eat all that food by themselves.
One afternoon, after being outside for a bit, watching them fight endlessly over these feeders I said, “If y’all don’t stop fighting over those feeders, I’m taking them down.”
When I came back outside, this is what I found :)
I will rise now, and go about the city in the streets, and in the broad ways I will seek Him whom my soul loveth: I sought Him, but I found Him not. –Song 3:2

Only fear the LORD, and serve Him in truth with all your heart: for consider how great things He hath done for you. –1 Samuel 12:24
And I heard the voice from heaven saying unto me, Write, Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord from henceforth: Yea, saith the Spirit, that they may rest from their labours; and their works do follow them. –Revelation 14:13
In all my meekness
With all my weakness
God could always see past
He gave me strength at last
Living life now with courage and boldness
Able to get through this world and it’s coldness
No longer haunted
The life I wanted
