Shammah, The Mockingbird

This last winter we had a mockingbird make his home in our yard.  Mom and I fed him suet made of peanut butter, oats and seed.   Whole flocks of black birds moved into the area and  would swarm our bird feeders and devour everything in sight.  They tried to horn in on our little mockingbird's suet but Shammah, as we named this tenacious little bird, stood his ground and defended his "pea patch".  He was a busy little guy.  He roosted in this honeysuckle bush outside our window and he would continually hop around and around to fend off the intruders.  We had more laughs watching him.  We named him Shammah after a story in the bible.  Shammah was a mighty man of battle for King David and he defended a patch of ground against a whole hoard of Philistines.  Well the black birds were like the Philistines for sure.  There were hundreds!  Shammah never tired.  He just kept on keeping on.  It was a very harsh winter and we wondered if he would survive.  We're glad to report that he did and now he has a "honey".  Maybe we will have a lot of little Shammahs around the place before long.  Every night Shammah serenades his little darling.  From redbird  to blue jay to hawk.  Every birdsong imaginable.  This must be part of the courtship.   All hours of the night he is singing.  God gives us a song in the night!

IISamual 23:11-12
11And after him was Shammah the son of Agee the Hararite. And the Philistines were gathered together into a troop, where was a piece of ground full of lentiles: and the people fled from the Philistines. 12But he stood in the midst of the ground, and defended it, and slew the Philistines: and the LORD wrought a great victory

Teachings from the Master Gardener

A few years ago a lady gave me a some grape plants.  I had never raised grapes so I didn't know much about them.  For several years now I have had beautiful vines, with lush green leaves, but no fruit.  Mom had read several old gardening books and most of them preached the significance of pruning the vine back to a single main branch to get them to produce fruit and not just foilage.  Well I couldn't bring myself to do that.  They were such beautiful plants.  Finally around late February I decided that I would prune the vines back.  I did a drastic pruning job.  I could hear the vines yelp in pain.  I've felt just like that vine when God pruned me back.  But He is the Master Gardener and knows what He is doing, even when we don't. 

I'm happy to report that my grape vines are beautiful AND have an abudance of sweet little starts of grapes clusters.  Hallelujah!!  I will harvest this year!

John 15 says I AM the true vine and my Father is the husbandman.  Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away: and every branch that beareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it may bring forth much fruit.  Now you are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you.  Abide in me, and I in you.  As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine, no more can you, except you abide in me.  I AM the vine, ye are the branches.  He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit, for without me you can do nothing. 

It goes on to say that the Father is glorified when we bear much fruit and it says if we abide in Him and His words abide in us, we shall ask what we will and it shall be done unto us. 

Galatians 5:22-25 says that the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance and we that are Christ's have crucified the flesh (here is where the pruning comes in).

My name is Thressa and in Greek it means "The Harvester"  All of God's promises to me through Christ Jesus are going to come to fruition.  Praise God!!

You can see the baby clusters if you look real close!
