Wednesday, April 23, 2014. Putting my things on my bunk tonight, I was afraid: I had $4 in bills to last me the rest of the week. But I’d run the figures several times, and I knew I was due to have $0.69 left come Sunday morning. I chose to pray with confidence and joy for the day when I’ll be financially secure and able to be generous to others.

Bowerbirds

From the pertinent article at Wikipedia:  “Bowerbirds /ˈbaʊərbɜrd/ make up the bird family Ptilonorhynchidae. They are renowned for their unique courtship behaviour, where males build a structure and decorate it with sticks and brightly coloured objects in an attempt to attract a mate.”
