"Yet a time is coming
and has now come when the true worshipers will worship
the Father in spirit and truth, for they are the
kind of worshipers the Father seeks." - John 4:23

My Heavenly Daddy is healing
me from the inside out.

Transparency is Real.
Many times painful.

Daddy let me be secure in You only!

During my journey, I am finding it difficult at times to hang on to the hope part of healing.

I want to extend a heartfelt thank you to all of you who left me encouraging and positive posts during these recent days. They have not gone unnoticed!! Each one of you had something to contribute which touched me dearly.

God has been with me every step of the way, believe you me! Through my constant questioning of Him ’why this and why that and why does it hurt so much,’ I am still able to feel His presence. I thank Him for that!

The controlling issues of recent from a family member continues, and I unceasingly ask and rely on God to sustain me through these troubled waters. Was able to catch up on some needed lost sleep this weekend.

I would like to end with this personal story that the Lord brought to my mind today. So without further a-do I would like to introduce you to . . . .


Where I live there are lights that illuminate the parking spaces at night and trees, bushes and plant life surround the area and house different kinds of wild life. These lights are situated close by the bushes where birds have their nests. (I love birds, if you have not already noticed)

In one of these bushes near my home, there is a family of Mockingbirds. All through the night I hear one or more share their song, non-stop. You would figure they would sleep during this time. What I finally have learned through my own investigation (actually got up, walked the grounds at 3:00 a.m. one morning, found the bush that houses these birds) is one of these parking lights shines on a Mockingbirds nest. The birds then think it is daylight all the time. At first I worried that this family would never get proper sleep (like someone I know) and their sleep pattern must surely be screwed up. But, day in and day out and night in and night out, their song continues strong.

So, I said to myself this morning, before sunlight, as I listened outside my window, “now that is one happy family.” Mr. and Mrs. Mockingbird and the kids have a Heavenly Father who keeps them strong, healthy and provides daily for them, and they do not worry or have a care in the world!

Then I thought to myself.........

"So, then why should I?”


  1. God even provides that mockingbird family with 24/7 daylight! Pray that you and I/nd those who want, may "see the light" 24/7, instead of now and then--or a little of this, and a little of that -grin!

    "Just Be Real" if you are OK with it, send me an Email so I can write you (I don't DO spam, etc!). Mine is fiddlemn@comcast.net. If not, that's OK!!

  2. Wonderful post. Our father's love knows no bounds. :)

  3. It's wonderful that you have your level of faith. It'll help sustain you through rough times.

  4. Since I have been homeschooling my kids, I have been so fascinated with birds. This is such a wonderful story that you have shared. And if I am not mistaken, the song of a Mockingbird is very precious. How blessed you are to have such a beautiful song to hear. I wonder did David have that same gift of song? God delights in you gal, and He will constantly send you blessing for your urning heart. His healing is beyond understanding and He has such an awesome plan for you. God bless you and I know you are in good hands. Love from Tanya

  5. thankyou for the message you left for me today, it meant a lot
    i feel so alone sometimes that everylittle bit of "im not alone" helps,
    take care x,x

  6. The natural world--birds, especially--has been so healing for me. I always love it when we go on vacation somewhere where there are mockingbirds. Love 'em!

  7. Marj thanks for the visit once again. Glad we have something in common with the healing/pleasure of God's feathered friends. Mockingbirds have such a repertoire of song. The only thing I do not care about them, also with Blue Jays, are their aggressiveness.

    A survivor.... Dear one, I am so very sorry for your pain. I left you another message on your blog, please take a look.

    Tanya you must have a backyard full of birds, correct? Once again, thank you for your kind words. You are special.

    Anonymous Drifter, I tell you, if I did not have what little faith I have, you would not even be reading this blog. Thank you!

    T. Anne, I am learning about our Father's love! Amen!

    Stevie, great analogy you came up with 24/7. Stevie, I appreciate you asking about emailing me, but at this time of my journey, I feel comfortable just blogging. Maybe one day sir. Thanks for caring!

    Glad to hear from you. Was a bit worried.

  9. You know, gal, that driving back from a short trip to the grocery store, R and I listened to the spring peepers in the woods near the creek (on the road upon which we live). they are little frogs who peep mornings and evenings non-stop. It is such a sweet, blessed sound of spring! It is amazing how well God takes care of the smallest of his children. How can we dare doubt His presence in our lives?

  10. Lisa-Spring Peepers, how very sweet. Yes, nothing gets past God, nothing.

    Stuck-Aww, thank you for your concern. Sometimes I need a bit time to recover, so my absense may be noticed.

  11. we are ok. you sound better, so happy for you. all the ups and downs are so tiring...aren't they...so you love birds...we hv a macaw you may have...ha....talks too much sometimes. don't be concerned..we also need time to deal with things. appreciate your caring for us...we feel same about you...safe hugs to you!

  12. Rainbow, glad all are ok. A Macaw, those birds scare me. They can take a chunk out of your hand if they get their way. But, they are certainly very colorful and pretty!

  13. Glad you found the real Power behind the song!

  14. Thank you Jess for the visit.

  15. Hi

    Thanks for your visits to my blog. Glad you are feeling better

    When I lived in Alice Springs (outback Australian desert) I would wake up and see the most exotic, colourful birds - beautiful!

    I pray that you will able to feel God's love more and more as you walk the walk.

    Life is often tough - it has been for me too! It helps me to know that Jesus had it pretty tough too so He can understand.

    God Bless
