“For all our days are passed away in thy wrath: we spend our years as a tale that is told. The days of our years are threescore years and ten; and if by reason of strength they be fourscore years, yet is their strength labour and sorrow; for it is soon cut off, and we fly away.” (Psalms 90:9-10 KJV)

“I have considered the days of old, the years of ancient times. I call to remembrance my song in the night: I commune with mine own heart: and my spirit made diligent search.” (Psalms 77:5-6 KJV)

“But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.” (2 Peter 3:8-9 KJV)

  1. WOW ! What a way to start the new year: Violet-crowned Wood-nymph, Northern Long-eared Owl, Beautiful Firetail, and more fancy-feathered flamboyance! Talk about winged wonders wearing happy hues, grandiose glitz, resplendent radiance, ornate elegance, brilliant brightness, superb splendor, majestic magnificence, and posh plumage! (Not only that, those birds are pretty.)
