I noticed lots of bees busy on some of the plants and asked oneof the ladies that work there if they had been having lots of hummingbirds this year. We have had flocks of them at our feeders and so have other folks I know. The lady said they have had a few and proceeded to tell us of a TV show she had seen about hummingbirds and how their beaks are either long or short depending where in the world they are and what flowers are in the area. I made the comment "Well, yes. Their creator new exactly what He was doing when He created them and gave them just what they need." Well! She didn't seem to like that very much. She said it was because they had evolved over the centuries...kind of drifted off and went inside the store and had nothing else to say to us!
She seemed surprised that their beaks were just what they needed for the flowers in the area but it didn't surprise us at all. Of course God would equip them with what they need. He knew it before He created them. Facts like that just serve to prove He created everything from nothing and there were no accidents.

I have been stressed about a few situations lately. I have prayed about them and tried to give it all over to God. I keep telling myself "Be still and know that I am God", but I just can't seem to quit worrying. This morning, on my drive in, I spent some time praying and stressing. Then this verse came to me:
Mark 4:39 And he arose, and rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea, Peace, be still. And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm.
If He can still the waters, can't he still my heart? Can't He calm me? Bring me peace? I guess only if I let Him. I don't know the outcome of these situations, but I want Jesus to calm them and get honor and glory in them. Lord, help me to be still!
