My friend Sara, shared this song with me recently in a comment. I had heard it before, but sometimes, I think you are SUPPOSE to hear or see things at that moment, and THAT day, I needed just this!

My favorite part and the part I find myself singing in my head:

'Cause what if Your blessings come through raindrops What if Your healing comes through tears? What if a thousand sleepless nights Are what it takes to know You're near? What if trials of this life Are Your mercies in disguise?

My family and I took out for the farm right at dusk last night. While Dan was hunting recently he snapped a crappy cell phone picture of an owl. This owl was sitting on 10 inch post and was using it a bit like a  fat person perching on a small bar stool. He was HUGE. You could just barely make out horns. I'm jealous of my husband..I'm pretty sure his "big ass owl" he saw was a Great Horned Owl.  Anyway, we took off, with my camera in hand, in hopes to find it again, or at least see SOME sort of owl, but we didn't see anything. My brother sent a text about 20 minutes after we left to eat, and apparently he had 2 of them hooting around his front yard. I guess the key is to stop LOOKING for them, and to just make sure I have my camera, all the time!!

Have a wonderful Sunday!

One of my favorite songs!! Somehow, I managed to sing that as a special at church a few months after my dad died. .eek! She actually wrote that song as her husband was in treatment for a brain tumor. .I heard them talk about it on Christian radio one day. .never googled to see what the rest of the story was though. So sad!
On a birding note. I saw a Kestrel in my front tree during the last snow storm. .I couldn't believe it. I saw one in captivity last year when we went eagle watching..I thought it was pretty cute then. Haven't seen him since. .good luck catching your owl!
