Signs And Wonders

I forgot about that whole Daylight Savings Time thing when I went to bed last night, so my alarm didn't go off in time to get me up for church this morning.

Blast!

I was feeling sort of bad about that, this being Lent and all. And then, ten feet outside of my window, working on a tree stump, I saw a woodpecker. It was huge! Big as a duck. I didn't know they got so big. With a beautiful scarlet crest.

He was amazing. Just beautiful.

And presently, he was joined by another woodpecker, slightly smaller.

I've rarely seen woodpeckers here, and never seen one quite so close. If I had been at church, I would have missed that.

Sinful, vain, worldly thoughts, I know.
