2018 April 24 Thursday in Liberty Hill Texas

54° going towards 84. I checked the weather in Iowa and it is also 54° but going for a high of 71.

What a bright start to the day. Not a cloud in the sky.

Here are some of the wild flowers in my yard.

It was just Ella and I at ten o’clock at the Georgetown senior center this morning. But by the time bingo started at 10:45 we had ten folks here.

After bingo half of them left again because the lunch menu was salad, grapes and pudding. A lot of them either can’t eat it or don’t like salad. Ella had problems with colitis so she came prepared with a peanut butter sandwich.

The next stop was the doctor so that Ella could get her shoulder checked out and get meds updated.

WHICH BIRD ARE YOU?

Psalms 1:1-3
Blessed is the person who does not follow the advice of wicked people, take the path of sinners, or join the company of mockers. Rather, he delights in the teachings of the LORD and reflects on his teachings day and night. He is like a tree planted beside streams– a tree that produces fruit in season and whose leaves do not wither. He succeeds in everything he does.

“A man is known by the company he keeps.”* Birds of a feather flock together.”**

There are so many ways to describe a personality using a bird analogy. Are you a hawk or a dove? Or are you a chicken or am eagle? Maybe you’re a turkey. Do you strut and crow like a rooster? Are you proud as a peacock, or as gracefully as a swan?

Be careful of the friend you choose and the leaders that you follow. There are true friends and honest leaders. However there are also many who aren’t. Examine yourself and your friends in the light of God’s word.

What fruit do they bear? What fruit do you bear?

*Aesop, a slave and storyteller believed to have lived in ancient Greece between 620 and 564 BCE.

**In 1545, William Turner wrote “Byrdes of on kynde and color flok and flye allwayes together.”
