"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!

MY BIRD DIED

My precious parakeet, Chipperett, who would of been seven years at the end of the month, died last night. I cannot tell you how very sad and heartbroken I am. She woke me up with her cries and when I got to her cage she was already gone. Zeb, my cockatiel of 21 years, who became her best friend was flying around calling her and looking for her and continues to do it this morning. It will take him time. He did the same thing when he lost his mate three years ago. And this grieves me that he is suffering as well.



I remember reading about this in the newspaper a while back with these images. It is so true. I contest to that as Zeb continues to fly back and forth this morning and calling for her.

Out of all my birds, he was the only one that I was not able to train. So, he does not come to me on his own. I have been sitting with him since early this morning and can approach him and talk to him. Poor thing, he is going crazy searching for his girl.

  10. Thank you all for your comments. I cried when I first saw her laying at the bottom of her cage last night and when I buried her outside my apt. this morning.

    Zeb has been grieving more than I for now as I have been trying to console him. This will take a few days for him.
