Every Bush Afire - Take 2
My camera went to good use as we captured the tufted titmouse, the chickadee, the cardinal, a red-headed woodpecker and even a sassy squirrel.

Earth’s crammed with heaven,
And every common bush afire with God
But only he who sees, takes off his shoes
The rest sit round it and pluck blackberries.
-Elizabeth Barrett Browning
Aurora Leigh, book 7, lines 821-24
May I not only see, but take off my shoes and feel. May I not only sit, but be still and listen to God's exquisite music.
