No Bigger Than a Berry -Guest Heart Thursday

This tiny hummer chitter-sings to me, talks to me--hangs in front of my nose, flashing his red throat at me, to get my attention.  Sometimes he seems so friendly I think he might land on my finger.  He is no bigger than the berries on the English Elderberry tree in my garden.  Do you see all the hearts in the berries?  What a darling little fellow.

Here is a closeup of my small friend.  He makes me smile.

Daddy Update:  Dad is in the VA Hospital.  He still can't speak or swallow.  He consented to a feeding tube, but pulled it out in the night.  Mom has been with him most of each day.  They sit and hold hands--he kisses her fingers and by this tells her he loves her.  I don't know how long Dad will be around--he's a grand old soldier and he is a fighter.  I would especially appreciate your prayers not only for Dad, but especially for Mom.  Also please pray for my darling Sissy--since I can't be there as much as I would normally--because of my husband's condition--there is a lot of additional stress for her.  Thank you so much.

Hubby Update:  My Beloved has cancer.  It is worse than we first thought.  He will be having surgery in early December.  His cancer is pervasive, so they'll need to remove the entire prostate.  They won't know, until surgery, if it has spread to other areas.  We are deeply thankful his surgeon's reputation is the best in the Pacific NW, USA, in robotics surgery. Please pray for my husband's peace of mind and that I will have strength to do what must be done to help him.  I am so grateful to you dear friends for your loving thoughts and prayers.

  1. My positive thoughts and prayers for you and your family. It looks like hearts are suffering these days, and you are not alone as it is very common here too, both stroke and cancer! More power to all of you and God bless.
