Aww…some Monday’s Music Moves Me

Aww Mondays

We have had a cold weather spell here in NW Arkansas the past week or so. The high temperatures have been in the 20’s while the lows have been in single digits and a northwest wind has sent the wind chill into sub-zero range. I don’t like single digits and sub-zero.

I set out the bird feeders and proceeded to capture a few images of my feathered friends. One morning I managed to capture this sequence involving a female Cardinal leaving a branch. I converted the images to black & white to help filter our background distractions. Here is the launch sequence.




Monday’s Music Moves Me

This week the theme at 4M is in honor of National Compliment Day. So, we are to offer a nice compliment to your readers or dance partners through song.

May will mark our 48th wedding anniversary. Every year I could sing the chorus of this song to my wife.

However wonderful our marriage is, it is because the one who guides our lives, our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Over the years, we have faced multiple trials and difficulties, but whenever we looked for hope in the midst of the storm, “There Was Jesus”.

The greatest blessing in this life has been the person that God placed by my side to share this journey with and both of us would tell you that we are thankful for all that the Lord has done for us. have a blessed week.

  1. Love the birds and you know how I love your black and white photography. Beautiful and a hug Awww.

    Love your take on the theme. We were in the same place. Mine will post at 11:59 tonight.

    Love your Happiest Year. Not heard that before. What a sad ending though. At least he had that happiest year.

  2. Well, that Happiest Year got the tears flowing. Interesting that the artist’s explanation of the song on You Tube doesn’t track with what the video portrays, and how the meaning of this song can change depending on the listener. Enjoyed your bird action shots; it’s interesting looking at the body language of various visitors to our feeders (which include Northern cardinals.)

  3. Great photo capture of the female cardinal! 🙂

    Ahhh, how sweet you are! “Happiness Years” is a beautiful sentiment. That’s precisely how I feel about DH in our soon to be 43 years of marriage this June. Every relationship has its ups and downs. It’s what you do in the low moments that define one’s relationship and as you know your marriage is one of the things worth fighting for every step of the way. I thank Jesus every day for the gift He gave me in DH. I’m so blessed. Thank you for touching my heart and thank you for being such a beautiful light for Jesus. Have a boogietastic week, my friend!
