{ A Special Blessing }

Image result for cardinal on a barbed wire fence

Is it wrong to ask God in our prayers to send us a special blessing?  Well, right or wrong, I've done it.
He sends those to us all during our day whether we ask or not, but for me, I know I so often miss the "God winks", but not this morning.

I haven't walked for a couple of days because of the weather and "Arthur" has decided to set up residence in my right knee. Mercy, getting old ain't for sissies!  I decided this morning, pain or no, even with a chill in the air and a breeze blowing, I was going to get out and walk. One reason was because - and some of you will find this absolutely crazy thinking - I pretty much knew there wouldn't be any of the other older folks out walking this morning and I'd have the roads to myself. That's an introverts way of thinking, Y'all.

I get to the end of the very last street I walk down in our subdivision that intersects with the main road and right across the road smack dab in front of my eyes, sitting on the barbed wire fence were two of the brightest red cardinals you've ever seen. I didn't have time to get a pic, but I'm pretty sure that was what God intended. I had to be the only person in the world who was seeing those birds right at that moment and it was meant just for me!  If you've read my blog for very long then you've heard my cardinal story many times. I feel like it's His way of whispering,
"I love you, Deb."

Ain't God good, Y'all!
Oh, yes He is!



  1. LOVE..Ain't God Good? Oh, yes He is!

  2. "Is it wrong to ask God in our prayers to send us a special blessing?"

    No. :)

  3. God is good all the time!! I'm so sorry you are having such pain, though. Walking might help!
