Yellow flames flutter
about the feeder:
a Pentecost of finches.
On the day of Pentecost all the believers were meeting together in one place. Suddenly, there was a sound from heaven like the roaring of a mighty windstorm, and it filled the house where they were sitting. Then, what looked like flames or tongues of fire appeared and settled on each of them. And everyone present was filled with the Holy Spirit and began speaking in other languages,as the Holy Spirit gave them this ability.
On this day of Pentecost, may we sit in a place of expectant wonder.
Happy Pentecost Sunday Friends!

I really love the field of yellow! It’s quite amazing… Makes me want to jump around in there 🙂 Thanks for posting this!
Saw loads of those fields travelling through England and Scotland a couple weeks ago. They were breathtaking. Found out it is rapeseed used to make canola oil. Thanks for visiting and leaving a comment.
Wow that is really cool! So those fields aren’t actually wild they’re planted fields, wow!
Yep, they were incredible. I have another post of some pictures called The Color of Stillness from about two weeks ago if you want to see more of a panoramic view.
I just checked it out, and I can’t believe that’s just an everyday sight there! I definitely wish we has stuff like that here where I live 🙂
Thanks for the follow, its been nice chatting with you and glad you enjoyed the pictures. I took over 1000 so its been hard to pick which ones to share.
Great work done..
Happy Pentecost Sunday to you Shelly.
Oh, and how I love those yellow flames aflutter, those Pentecostal finches!
To you too Debra! I have been waiting to use that poem ever since I read it last year. Its an example of a few words saying so much.
Thanks for visiting over at my place and letting me know it is Pentecost Sunday. I had not realized it. It is quite obvious at Redemptions Beauty, however! This is a wonderful post! Thank you for including me in your circle of contacts today.
I am so thankful for Pentecost. Some days, it is so apparent my desperate need for the Holy Spirit.
I love the church, is that in Scotland? Beautiful. Blessings!
It is in Scotland. I was on the top of a tour bus when I snapped that one!
I love that quote – a Pentecost of finches! And the beautiful architecture of the British isles (assuming where that is 🙂 ) Happy Pentecost Sunday to you too!
The flowers are in England, rapeseed fields that were breathtaking. The architecture is in Edinburgh, Scotland. Thanks for stopping by Pam, always enjoy your comments.
Thanks for dropping by my blog. Have a blessed day!

So glad you stopped by Ellen and thank for the follow. Its a privilege to have you join along.
Lovely in every way. Blessings on this Pentecost Sunday to you, too!
beautiful shots…beautiful thought
Beautiful photography. Just Breathtaking, today, as always. Bless you for using your gifts as you do. Hope you don’t ever stop seeing the world through the lense of just you.
I wouldn’t know how to see any other way. Thanks Elizabeth.
“A Pentecost of finches.” you find the most remarkable phrases.
We celebrated at church this morning with a friend blowing the shofar during our worship time.
it was powerful. a wonderful Pentecost.
I will never look at my goldfinches outside my window in the same way again.
Thanks for this Shelly.
My husband brought a shofar home to my son when he went to the Holy Land. How awesome to have the sound of one in your church during worship. And don’t you love that poem? It would have been perfect if I actually had a photo of goldfinches on my feeder, but it never happened!
Happy Pentecost Sunday to you my friend. So thankful for His presence in my life.
You, too!! And I loved the flowers… beautifully full of glory. Both in the Field of Service, and by the cathedral of worship.
One of my favorite poems—so much imagery in just a few words. Both pictures so beautiful. I particularly like the second, the frame holding what I know is a part of grand structure but with the limbs of the tree it becomes this magical ornate birdhouse in my mind. 🙂 So needed this reminder today of Pentecost as my faith tradition “forgets” to mention such things. Oh, Spirit fall fresh on me and on my dear friend, Shelly. He is our Comfort, Our Teacher, Our Seal. Thank you and may God richly you bless you this day.
I receive your prayer with open hands today Dea. Love the way your heart reveals such a generous spirit in these comments. And you know what is funny, your the second person to mention the cathedral looking like a bird house and I didn’t even think of that when I posted that photo. Just loved the photo. God is so aweseome.
I love the ‘expectant wonder’ idea…
Me too Sharon, its been on my mind ever since I wrote it.
A Pentacost of finches…I love.
You too Shelley! love those flowers!
When you mentioned the rapeseed field to someone then I knew for certain that was it. When we were going from Heathrow to Gatwick, these fields were overwhelmingly beautiful. We were told they were early and would be gone soon, so I felt that the Lord had just dropped them in my sight to bless me and make me smile. [We were heading home from Uganda and shifting from airport to airport. This beauty has never left my “sight”.]
Joanne, I felt so incredibly blessed that we were driving through the country at the time when they were in full bloom. They were a sight to behold, something I won’t forget any time soon.
This entire Easter season ends with tongues of fire and wind and breath and I am just beside myself – breathless and speechless!
Those yellow flowers are incredible. Lovely.
What a gorgeous shot of yellow!
Thank you. They were taken on my anniversary trip to England and Scotland a couple weeks ago.
