About Me

My photo
I am a Christian. I am a loving wife to my Army-National-Guard-Recruiter-Husband of 15 years. I am a stay-at-home-mother to our four handsome sons. I am a photographer. My blog is about as erratic, eclectic and random as I am, painted with rainbows of photos and words that are hills and valleys you travel; so lovely sometimes that they hurt you. These are the stories of how far we've come in the last 15 years as Christians, as a family and as individuals.

Humming Birds and Vultures

Humming birds fly around looking for bright, beautiful flowers from which to collect good, sweet nectar and spread wonderful pollen that aid the flowers. Very seldom do you see a humming bird on the groud, they stay airborne and busy doing good deeds.

Vultures can smell any dead, rotting things from far off then search for and circle around the carcas that they pick at and feed on. Vultures stay near to the ground while feeding and digesting their consumptions, ususally serving only themselves in the process.
Are you a Humming Bird or a Vulture?

Do you look for the good in others, spread encouraging words and use your abilities to uplift others or can you smell rumors and gossip from afar and dig up "dirt" on others, picking on them and killing them with your discouragement?

Proverbs 11:27 (NIV) He who seeks good finds goodwill,but evil comes to him who searches for it.

This wisdom came to me from a blogging buddy who's permission I have to copy it and post for my readers to be reminded in a kind and loving way to always stay airborne!
