Bad Hair Day?

I’ve been mulling over the idea behind this post for quite awhile and, despite some reservations, decided to go forward with it.  Now before you start sending me comments and emails, I know they are really feathers – not hair!  The head feathers on birds quite often are unique breed markings that also bring some degree of character to the birds.  That character may evoke an appearance of surprise, defense, elegance, comedy or maybe eccentricity.  Whatever the character, there is certainly a wide variety of head-dress styles sported by our flying friends, and I thought I’d share a sampling of them with you.

Just as there are commonly vast differences between birds, there are differences among us humans as well.  Yet, despite our physical differences, followers of Jesus Christ, can take heart in Ephesians 2:10; “For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God afore prepared that we should walk in them.”  While this scripture offers some degree of comfort, it also tells us that, as new creations in Christ, through His grace,  the Spirit has designed and prepared us to be fruitful in good works.  The performance of good works is not a path toward salvation, but a product of our salvation.  Believers are blessed with knowledge of His will and the assistance of His Holy Spirit.

  4. Yes, I think both His creativity and perhaps even sense of humor are evident!
