Peliated Woodpecker, November 25th, 2012, Woods Green Lake

On an early morning walk, my husband and I came across a Pileated Woodpecker.

The bird was hammering away at its food on a tree along our path.

I stood amazed at the bird’s zeal to go after what he was looking for. I also marveled at God’s creativity. The woodpecker’s tongue is actually three times larger than it’s beak and wraps around its brain. God in His sovereign wisdom, created the bird with a unique way to protect its brain from injury.


make me this determined.

Make me zealous for your work,

all along trusting your sovereign hand of protection.

“If you look for truth, you may find comfort in the end; if you look for comfort you will not get either comfort or truth ...” ― C.S. Lewis ..... In my pursuit of self, I found utter darkness. In my pursuit of truth, I found Jesus, who dispelled the darkness by His forgiveness. Now I follow Him and try to understand Him better. I am a wife, mother of 6, blogger and love taking photographs of sunrises.
