Oh Yes I DID!
Lots of you wanted to know what the pretty hanging rings were in yesterday's post. In fact, some wanted to know so much that you even suggested that Phil or I go and knock on the door to ask. As if I would do such a thing! Of course not, I would ask Phil to instead!!! In fact, I am always asking Phil to knock on the doors of strange houses, but that is for another upcoming post...Anyway, here is Phil at the door, and here is your answer. These are bird feeders! I have never seen anything like them! They are made of very heavy crackle glass that sparkles in the sun. The birds perch on the rim to eat. But when it is wet and windy, they can hop inside to eat. The food stays dry, and the rings have drainage holes. They each hold two cups of seed. Did you know there was a time when birds brought food to man instead of the other way around?
"Then the word of the Lord came to Elijah: "Leave here, turn eastward and hide in the Kerith Ravine, east of the Jordan. You will drink from the brook, and I have ordered the ravens to feed you there." So he did what the Lord had told him. He went to the Kerith Ravine, east of the Jordan, and stayed there. The ravens brought him bread and meat in the morning and bread and meat in the evening, and he drank from the brook."
1 Kings 17:2,6
