Hang On!


Sometimes life gets a little complicated - or a lot complicated . . .
and requires us to sacrifice ease and comfort.
Some solutions demand that we think outside the box . . .
and forget how everybody else is doing it.
But if we keep our eyes on The Prize . . .
no matter how far we must strain our necks -
we'll be rewarded.


Persevere . . . hang on!


(I took this pic of the beautiful red-headed woodpecker through my window looking at the feeder that hangs a few feet away on the front porch.)

Wow, what an awesome header photo you have there.

AND, this pic is outstanding of the woodpecker. He sure is haning on for dear life.

I hope you have a blessed week.

Hi Glenda, I love Red-heads... Haven't seen ours since we got home from our trip--but I'm sure they will return...

My post on Perseverance has gotten lots of 'hits' in blogland... Think that is something we all need to do a better job with....
Hugs,
Betsy

Birds assume the strangest positions ... and you remind us of such important truths.

Wonderful picture of someone successfully hanging on despite topsy-turvy circumstances! What a fantastic photo!

Ginny said...

Wow! I figured it was a red headed before I read that it was. We must keep our eyes on Jesus and not others, or measure ourselves by others.

You always match practical God-given advice with just the right photo.
What you have written in so true.
I'm hanging on right now. It's not a white-knuckle hold, but a hold to a promise that God is slowly fulfilling. And no it's not going to be the conventional way.
Already I can see my brothers' heads shaking. But I've told them not to bother me with their negativity. Hopefully my present post will a reinforcement.
Love the photo! Birds are so much fun to watch and we can learn a lot from them.

Even the littlest creatures can teach us something. Beautiful picture.

Kathy said...

Your photos and your words are always such a perfect match. Which do you do first, the photo, then the words, or vice versa? You have a special talent. I'll bet you were an awesome teacher.

You get the best wildlife pictures! Awesome shot and great words of wisdom. I like it much better than that poster of the cat hanging on.
