"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!

This morning my parakeet, Boobutt, decided to escape from the room that his cage is housed in. Something startled him and he flew out into my living room which was dark. Parkeets when uncertain fly all the way up to the ceciling. I heard him constantly hit the ceciling. Running to turn some lights on. He still could not get his barings. It was only a matter of time before he ran out of steam and would crash to the ground. Me praying that he would NOT fall behind the big mantle that I have in the living room. Well, you guessed it. That is where he ran out of steam. I knew it would be a bear to get him out from behind there.

After quickly scolding him, then realizing, it was NOT his fault. I proceeded to get a flash light to see exactly where he was positioned and if I would be able to retrieve him by moving my 24 inch tv. He happened to land on the tv wire in the back. So, I knew I had some of a chance.

Well here I am 6:00 in the morning, moving the tv and stretching my arm that just barely fit between the mantle and the wall...... But..... out of reach of Boobutt. "Oh Lord why?" Then I thought, of all times, this is how many of us are..... "just out of the reach of the Lord's hand." I quickly said a prayer, and stretched with all my might to try and reach Boobutt, grabbing him gently and pulling him out. He did not struggle. I could tell he was shaken up. So, I quickly put him back in his cage to recover.

Boobutt knew that the only way he could escape and be safe is in the hands of his master. What an awesome thought.....
