The first three photo were sent to me by our neighbor, Brenda. She feeds the little bluebirds meal worms. We do not feed them but almost every afternoon, if I put out fresh water, they come over for a bath.
The last photo is of Mt. Olivet which is where most of our ancestors are buried. I put this photo own the blog to go with what happen Sunday.
As Prince and I rushed to Church last Sunday, we saw near Warner Park a BMW had gone off the road going into town. Prince said he had seen lots of cars at the same spot as a result of ice on the road or them going to fast. We went own to Church and Father Tim Jones, had a sermon on "listening to God".
Prince and I visited with some of the members and then we headed home as Mimi would probably be ready for breakfast.
On the way home, I saw a blue light ahead and mentioned to Prince "they got them one" thinking it was a speeder. Getting closer we saw it was Channel 4 News van that the policeman was behind and up ahead the train which runs along the highway had stopped. Then the next thing we saw were 3 police cars with blue lights. Looking over at the tracks, I saw something I never wish to see again, a body bag. It was right across the road from the BMW. Prince said he thought it had something to do with the car and probably the train had hit someone.
As the week went on we found out that not the train we had seen but one that had come before it had hit the man. Later his name was given along with his age. He was only 40. Then his obituary was in the paper and he had a wife and children. My heart went out to them.
We can all try to figure out what happen but only he and God know for sure.
At 59 that was the very first body bag I had ever seen. The kitty justice is that may this be the last.

Lady Di Tn....you are so like me...I too pray for people after seeing accidents and etc. and will think of them for days and even weeks after. Maybe that is why we are put in these situations.
Those little blue birds are beautiful.....wished they would visit Arizona and I would but those worms for them.

Changes
you are probably correct about the situations.
We have lots of those little Blue Birds.In the summer, after Prince's mows the back yard, they cover the ground looking for food. Peace

Lady Di,

Congratulations on the awards. You are very deserving. You always have something of interest to say here.

I have seen a body bag and it's not pleasant. I'm sorry you had to see that. We have a train track here where dozens of people have been killed because they tend to walk on the tracks and not pay attention, or they have music blaring in their ears and they can't hear the trains coming. Very sad. May he rest in peace and may God give his family comfort.

On a happier note, I love the photos of the bluebirds. They are one of my favorite birds. We don't see them here very much, so now I just HAVE to come to see you. LOL

Have a wonderful weekend, my friend.
Blessings,
Mary

Dear Dianne ~~ A very sad post about the accident and the sight of the body bag. I have never seen one, although I have witnessed quite a few deaths over the years.
The beautiful blue birds saved the day. They are lovely. Thanks for sharing the pics. Take care, Love, Merle.
