How do you know for sure there is a God? If there is a God, then why do bad things happen to good people? What if you do all this stuff for God your whole life, you die and you learn that He didn’t exist?

Ever hear questions like these? If you have been a Christian for very long I am sure you have. I have many friends that are not Christian but they are curious about my beliefs so questions are a natural part of wanting to understand why it is that I believe what I believe.

On the other side of that, I also have a lot of Christian friends with the same questions. Some are new in their walk, some have been Christians for a long time. Some ask these questions when they are faced with a crisis and their faith is wavering. I have asked the same questions myself and the answers I got when I asked those questions were important.

Here in Kentucky they arrive from their winter homes in April and stay with us until mid-October. They are so much fun to watch! Did you know hummingbirds can fly backwards? They are amazing to watch in flight and put on quite the acrobatic show! We have many close encounters with our birds. So many in fact that my family and I have studied them for the past 10 years.

It all started when a close friend of mine gave me three little hummingbird feeders for my birthday. I brought the feeders home not really expecting to see any birds but boy, was I wrong! I had many hummers and I also had a new passion in my life. I began to feverishly study all the material I could get my hands on about hummingbirds and in particular, ruby throats, since that is what we see in my area.

I was amazed to learn that hummingbirds actually have super fast metabolisms. So fast, in fact, that they live on the brink of death! All that zooming and zipping causes them to need a constant supply of food. Read More
