Spotted Sandpiper

Look who I spotted looking for food on the shore of a pond. A Spotted Sandpiper! We do not get Sandpipers often, because we are not anywhere near a beach. I watched him in the golden evening light being very stealthy. What a treat!




“Your thoughts—how rare, how beautiful! God, I’ll never comprehend them! I couldn’t even begin to count them— any more than I could count the sand of the sea.
Psalm 139

Yes the Lord can send a sandpiper any where He wishes!! Been slow getting to respond because my Mom fell last week and broke a hip. She was brought by ambulance up here for surgery and is working hard in rehab now. 91 and still trying the hardest she can. My Aunt, her baby sister at 80yrs young just had a stroke so it's been pretty stressful here.
