A Longing Fulfilled


A Longing Fulfilled

Birds speak of hope

resting in this moment    

soon to rise above




A longing fulfilled is sweet to the soul,

 Proverbs 13:19

Recently my husband returned from an outing and handed me a black box. I assumed it was chocolate because he often brings me some on the weekends. But when I focused on the gift, I discovered it was a camera. And not just any old camera… it was a Canon PowerShot SX60 HS that I never in a million years would have bought for myself.

My husband already knew I would continue to suffer away indefinitely with my little old camera (I’m keeping it for macros). So when he found himself in the possession of an unexpected windfall, he decided to get me a camera I could capture good bird shots with. Wow. I can also lasso the moon with its super-charged zoom.





~ Waiting is the basting on the feast of fulfillment. ~


I believe waiting is a blessing. When we’ve wanted or needed something and trusted God to provide according to His timing, we receive peace and an extra measure of joy when the longing is fulfilled.


Purposely trusting God is the secret to peace.


What fulfillment have you especially rejoiced over?


Providential Blessings ~ Wendy

  1. Ah, another beautiful, uplifting post, Wendy. Glad you were able to incorporate birds here as well. 🙂 You’re going to be “hopping like a bird” as you keep up with two blog posts a week. Have a “tweet-i-ful day”. 🙂

    1. Thank you, dear Tracy. I had considered doing two posts a week, but now that I’m keeping both blogs going I’ll do one on each for now. I know my limits after three years of blogging. 😉 Hugs. The birds will be back again as I’m having fun photographing them here and there.


  2. What a perfect ending to an uplifting post! Your husband is a gem. Your little birdie is so sweet. Awesome Wendy! You will no doubt enjoy your new camera!! Prayers answered like this are the absolute best! 😊

    1. Thank you, dear Rhonda. My husband is a gem, indeed. Before I could open my mouth in protest when he mentioned he was looking for a camera for me, he told me he was not changing his mind. I’m learning to allow others to bless me. ❤

    1. Thank you, Diana. xo Yes, I did get some shots, but mine paled in comparison to other ones I’d seen. But I did post an eclipse shot on my personal Facebook. Did you see the blood moon from where you were?


I enjoy a word in season, so I'd love it if you added an apple to the bowl.
