Well, I really have a dust storm brewing behind the scenes of this blog. So, if things don’t exactly work right for a few days, BEWARE!
Tomorrow is the 10th Anniversary of Lee’s Birdwatching Adventures. On February 16th of 2008, the first post came out. At that time I was using Blogspot. Then in July of that year, I switched to WordPress, and have enjoyed having the blog here. The name was changed to Lee’s Birdwatching Adventures Plus. That is when other topics besides birds began appearing. Later, I started Birds of the Bible for Kids blog to house many of the Birds of the Bible articles but written for the younger readers. [Kids] It grew from there.
Then about four years ago, I closed down that site for several reasons, like “old age” and needing more “naps.” The blog has continued to exist by having links over to Leesbird.com. The yearly fee has also been continually paid.
Now, I have a desire to re-open that blog and make it active again. As my regular readers are aware, there were missing photos and broken links discovered throughout the blog. I have spent many days and weeks, with the Lord’s help, tracing down and fixing many of them. At one time there were over 4,000 broken links. As of yesterday, there were 610 left to fix. [One reason blogs haven’t been as often as previously.]
While the links have been fixed, those older original posts were revisited. They were good and need to be reproduced again. It was actually fun finding those older blogs. Then the wheels started turning. Maybe the Kids blog needs to be brought back to life.
There are 144 verses in the KJV that tell us to “remember.” So, maybe we should remember and remind the newer generation of God’s truths. Guess that would apply to truthful posts.
“Remember the days of old, consider the years of many generations: ask thy father, and he will shew thee; thy elders, and they will tell thee.” (Deuteronomy 32:7 KJV)
“Remember that thou magnify his work, which men behold.” (Job 36:24 KJV)
“I will remember the works of the LORD: surely I will remember thy wonders of old.” (Psalms 77:11 KJV)
“Remember his marvellous works that he hath done; his wonders, and the judgments of his mouth;” (Psalms 105:5 KJV)
Should we not share the Wonders of God’s Creation of birds and critters to our younger generation?
“I remember the days of old; I meditate on all thy works; I muse on the work of thy hands.” (Psalms 143:5 KJV)
Oh, yes. The Dust storm! My plan is to move the Bible Birds and the Kid’s Section (with all it’s sections) to the Birds of the Bible for Kids blog. In the transition, there will some broken links caused by all of that. They will be mended as quickly as possible. In time, when all is finished, hopefully without too much time, all will be well again. The post being moved are going to be given current dates by being refreshed and posted anew.
