Woodstock’s Shock Lessons

Woodstock and Flying

For those of you who do not know about Peanuts, the cartoon character, they feature a dog named Snoopy. Snoopy’s friend is a little yellow bird named Woodstock. Snoopy is the only one who understands what Woodstock says.

While I have been recovering from my surgery, my birdwatching has been only reading about the adventures of Woodstock and Snoopy instead of out birdwatching for real. I have kept a few the adventures of them to share with you all.

Here are a few more adventures of Woodstock:

Woodstock Shock of No Worms

“O satisfy us early with thy mercy; that we may rejoice and be glad all our days.” (Psalms 90:14 KJV)

“I love them that love me; and those that seek me early shall find me.” (Proverbs 8:17 KJV)

Woodstock was seeking a worm to eat, but the Lord wants us to seek Him early in the morning, and all day long.

Woodstock’s Wake Up Shock

“A friend loves at all times, …” (Proverbs 17:17a NKJV)

Sometimes were are tempted to do things, but really shouldn’t do it. We really do not want to hurt one another.

Woodstock Needs Recycled

“But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin. If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.” (1 John 1:7-10 KJV)

The Lord knows that we fail sometimes, but He gives us many 2nd chances.

This time of the year, as Spring arrives, the birds like to sing. Woodstock is no different, even if he is only a cartoon bird.

Even dogs like to sing:

“The flowers appear on the earth; the time of the singing of birds is come, and the voice of the turtle is heard in our land;” (Song of Solomon 2:12 KJV)

Sing, O heavens; and be joyful, O earth; and break forth into singing, O mountains: for the LORD hath comforted his people, and will have mercy upon his afflicted.” (Isaiah 49:13 KJV)

Nesting Time With Snoopy’s Help

It’s getting time for the birds to think about heading north and start their nests. I couldn’t help but chuckle over Snoopy helping out.

We were at Gatorland recently, in central Florida, and the nests were everywhere. One even had a one-day old Great Egret in it. It really wasn’t so “Great” at this stage of its life.

I doubt Snoopy helped supply the twigs for these nest, especially with all the Alligators laying around underneath them.

Have a great day!

If a bird’s nest chance to be before thee in the way in any tree, or on the ground, whether they be young ones, or eggs, and the dam sitting upon the young, or upon the eggs, thou shalt not take the dam with the young: (Deuteronomy 22:6 KJV)
