All Things Are New



Well, what have we hiding here behind the leaves? It's a cardinal, and a very sick looking one at that. But he's not really sick, he's just molting. Molting is a process where creatures lose their skin or feathers to get new ones. A bird's feathers are really dead, kind of like our hair or nails, so they shed them every once in a while and get new. I made a robin craft with our granddaughter a few days ago, and we made him look fat and happy. Or maybe just fat and goofy. Hmmm...perhaps a few more feathers would have been in order. We will eventually shed our old bodies at some point and get wonderful new ones, ones that will never get old or hurt or get sick again!


"And just as we have born the likeness of the earthly man, so shall we bear the likeness of the man from heaven...For the trumpet will sound, the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed...Death has been swallowed up in victory."
1 Corinthians 15

How sweet---the real thing and Anne's little craft... I got a picture of a male Cardinal today which looked just like yours...They aren't nearly as pretty right now as they were in early spring...BUT--I still love 'em!!!!
Hugs,
Betsy

Regina said...

Hey thanks (I had to quickly do it the right way) use to be you could just by pass the long way, but they've made some changes and it wasn't so bad. It's just a hassle when you already posted?
These are precious! I saved all the boys art through the years..when you look at it you just can't part. It's great when you can share these times with her.
The molting..our pig molts and so do our birds but never really noticed the Cardianls..how funny! Anyway, these are great- wishing you a wonderful evening-

Regina said...

I just sat down and noticed my phone was open on your web page too..but I had left it right on the verse which I hadn't mentioned- so beautiful!

reanaclaire said...

I didnt know about "molting" till u wrote about this... now i get to learn something new!

SquirrelQueen said...

Mr. Cardinal does not seem at all happy about the molting process. Now Anne Marie, on the other hand, looks very happy with her Cardinal. That smile of hers is so contagious!

Mildred said...

Beautiful photos Ginny and Anne's craft is cute as can be!

Bobbi said...

I LOVE THAT SCRIPTURE!! What a wonderful day that will be!! I think your project is sweet.. but not as sweet as the one holding it. Love that smile!!

From the Kitchen said...

Love them both--the real bird and Anne's cheerful craft! The molting cardinal reminds me that I need to schedule a haircut appointment ASAP.

Best,
Bonnie

Tammy@Simple Southern Happiness said...

We have a few of those molting here too, they do look a bit sickly at times.

What memories you are creating with your sweet grand daughter, she will remember those in later life.

Ruth's Photo Blog said...

Thanks for always sharing such perfect verses.

LC said...

You and Sandra at Madsnapper are so good at giving s a glimpse of nature in action. Lovd Anne Marie with her bird creation!She is so cute!

Sandra said...

Anne Marie's robin is as precious as she is, what a great idea for a craft. she looks so happy. that little Robin looks like he got caught in the rain. hope he gets his new feathers soon and I for one can not wait for my "new body"

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm said...

What a cute craft! reminds me of that Angry Birds game - although I don't play it.

Remington said...

Poor little birdie....

hip-chick said...

we have cardinals that come right up to our front door to eat the seed that falls to the ground from the feeders. I suppose they are like Ruth and they are gleaning.

Stephanie V said...

I've always wished we had cardinals here. They're such beautiful b birds. I can overlook the less-than-lovely spell of moulting.

Stacey Dawn said...

The one you made with your sweet granddaughter is precious - and so is she - look at her smile!!

wildlifewatcher said...

Hi Ginny, Yes, that male Northern Cardinal was in molt. I love your Granddaughter's craft project. The Scripture today is perfect. Have a nice day today!

Doris Sturm said...

Cardinals are quickly becoming my most favorite birds. There are so many of them here and I see them every day - all year long!

What a cute bird your grand daughter made ;-)

Have a wonderful day, Ginny, and I hope you are feeling well.

Love,
Doris (and Gizzy)

Fred Alton said...

Thanks Ginny, for the powerful lesson with the molting Cardinal. On this, my b'day, It helps to be reminded that soon we will "have a new body"!

Chatty Crone said...

Have you read the book yet Heaven is for Real - wonder what you think about it.

That cardinal did look sick - but he's molting.

Think I like your granddaughters better.

Love,
sandie

Oh Golly. She is just cute, cute, cute.

Cardinals are my favs. Seeing this molting cycle was most interesting. I had a canary way back in the day that was in a constant state of molting. He was bald. Ugliest canary you could imagine seeing but he had the prettiest song.

S. Etole said...

I had no idea they did that. We rarely see cardinals this far north.

Neal said...

I sure will agree that he looks sick and is having a "bad hair day" :)

LV said...

I enjoyed seeing both versions of the Cardinal. Also, learned a lot from your little bit of history on them.

George said...

I really like Anne Marie's robin. Birds certainly look strange when they're molting, don't they?

srp said...

The birds here look like they have been pecked on the head.... a little like monks!

DawnTreader said...

Anne-Marie's bird makes me smile! :)
Good post.

Melanie said...

I don't think I've ever seen a cardinal molting before...talk about a bad hair day! :)

Joanne said...

I thought that was just a very old bird!LOL
That craft project is adorable and so is your grand daughter...too cute!
Blessings, Joanne

Ann said...

You got some good shots of the cardinal. I wondered when I first saw it if something was wrong with it. Love the birds that you and Ann Marie made, those are adorable.

Rose said...

Ginny, I meant to reply to your last post to me when I was sick and could not sleep for coughing...you suggested sitting propped up or in recliner. Well, I had done been trying that...I was even taking cough syrup with codeine and still could not sleep! It always had knocked me out before....I finally started to feel significantly better two or three days ago...I can go to bed and go to sleep...in fact I keep thinking I will do a post about how wonderful it is to go to sleep in my very own bed! LOL
