I saw some birds eating bread crumbs today in the parking lot while I was waiting for my sister to get off work.
The Starling's picked at the Sparrows and tried to chase them away from the crumbs. One of the Starlings pecked one Sparrow very hard and knocked him over. My heart ached for the little Sparrow. But the Sparrow fought back, and he and another Sparrow chased the Starling away.
And I thought to myself, isn't that the way it is in life. The big guy always wants to hurt the little guy. Someone always wants what another has.
But we have to fight sometimes..We can't lay there and just take it.
We have to be brave enough to fight for what is ours. I want to encourage you tonight, don't give up. God helps us when we are weak. He gives us that extra strength we need to defend ourselves when we need to.
And He is our defender when we can't fight anymore..
Sending love out ..~Nita~

Tonight's Song is, Somebody's Praying by Ricky Scaggs
1st video, 1st clip

I heard this song many years ago during an exceptionally rough time in my life. I was overwhelmed with the feeling of God's mercy while I listened to it. And, I thought of all the people who had prayed me through so many bad times. I love this song. I hope you have time to listen to it, it will bless you. And know that somebody is praying for you..

I love you Nita and your post this morning is such a blessing and true. You are a blessing to me and I so agree with you that we must never give up and sometimes have to fight for the air we breathe. God will always defend us, we are His Girls!!
Praying that your day is blessed with many treasures as He continues to surround you with His love.

Hugs, Laurie in Ca.

Please continue to Pray for my Son Bryan. Even though they got all the cancer he is still going through so much.

I have FMS and many times have had to ask for strength to keep going when I didn't think I could make it.

If you go to Flassie's Fil'a by September 23rd there is a link I put up to a Goody Giveaway.

GOD Bless You and Yours!!!
