The ducklings follow close and one tries to hide under a wing. We need to follow Jesus like this.
Mat 23:37 O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou that killest the prophets, and stonest them which are sent unto thee, how often would I have gathered thy children together, even as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings, and ye would not!
I see victory in the V of the Mule Deer ears and the tree. My leg has been giving me much pain for a week, but the Lord gave me strength to walk around the park trail this morning. We can't just quit, but for sure we do seek what is most important when pain comes.
1 Pet 1:6 Wherein ye greatly rejoice, though now for a season, if need be, ye are in heaviness through manifold temptations:

Look at this crazy Blackbird. Is he the Phantom of the Opera? Perhaps he is conducting the orchestra? All dressed in black he looks cloaked, for even his beak appears hidden. The devil is often sneaking around trying to cause us to give up, but we overcome by faith in God's word. Speak faith.
John 15:20 Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also.

John 15:22 If I had not come and spoken unto them, they had not had sin: but now they have no cloak for their sin.
John 15:23 He that hateth me hateth my Father also.
1 Pet 2:15 For so is the will of God, that with well doing ye may put to silence the ignorance of foolish men:
1 Pet 2:16 As free, and not using your liberty for a cloak of maliciousness, but as the servants of God.
