Much chaos surrounds us in this world today. People are having to deal with missiles  going off and bombs detonating more and more.

Nature also comes with its set of battles. In my earlier blogs, I spoke of the Flicker Family and how they were happily building their nest, then along came the hostile Starlings and took over the Flickers’ nest.

I haven’t been able to get back to the nest lately, but I have heard through my friend; Joe Tundra, that the battle goes on. Joe has been kind enough to share this photo with me. In the photo, we have the Flicker flying away with the Starling’s egg in it’s mouth. He refuses to drop the egg close by, as though it may destroy his nest, and instead he takes it away in his mouth, like a bomb about to detonate.

Joe has also been kind enough to share this article with me. Apparently the battle between the Flickers and Starlings has been going on for quite some time.

I am a Christian who believes in Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. I also believe that Jesus will soon return to this earth.

While I speak on Mental Health and Depression in regards to the Bible, I am not discouraging anyone from seeking the help of a professional for treatment. I am also not discouraging anyone from taking medication. Along with their treatment, I truly think the Bible and the Words within should not be discounted.
