I just had the most awesome experience:
I was sitting on the back patio, drinking my morning coffee, & singing quietly.
A tiny hummingbird (I think it must have been a very young one) came & sat on the shepherd’s hook just a few feet from me. It sat there for half an hour!
I thank God for sending that little bird. He comforts me in my sorrow & fills my heart with joy.
While I was singing, the tiny bird sat there, motionless except for its little chest as it breathed. When I quit singing, it tilted its head and looked at me. So I started singing again and it turned its head back & continued to sit motionless.
This continued to happen for half an hour! My neighbors may think I’m nuts, singing on the patio at 6 AM, but I am so blessed!
I have been feeding hummingbirds for years and I have never seen one sit still for more than a minute, let alone half an hour!
Jon Franklin knows how much I love hummingbirds. I like to think that he asked God to send that little bird.
Welcome to Sprigg Street Memories! My name is Darla June Franklin. My maiden name was Yow.This blog will be my place to re-live old memories and introduce you to the people who lived near me in the South Sprigg Street neighborhood of Cape Girardeau, Missouri, during the late 1950's and early 1960's. Hopefully you may find my memories entertaining or informative. Maybe you have some memories or photos from that neighborhood and time also. If so, I hope that you will share them with me and also with others who may happen to visit this blog. You may leave a comment or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
