About the word Shekinah

The word Shekinah (shuh-kigh-nuh) means dwelling. It refers to the visible manifestation of the presence (or Shekinah Glory) of God. A luminous cloud. It is the very presence of God on earth. (see Holy Bible-Exodus 24:9-18)

Burrowing Owl

     These little burrowing owls always make me smile!  We often see them just south of Kuna.  For their small size, they sure seem to have a truck-load of attitude.  On one stretch of road we use to often see three or even four nesting pairs.  For some reason, there have been NONE so far this year.  Maybe they felt it was time to move on.  Maybe the nearby dairy farm drove them away due to the smell.  Maybe they decided to look for a larger burrow.  Only God knows the reason why they are not there this year.
      Isn't that just like God, though?  Things happen, prospects change, people move, circumstances fluctuate - and our questions cast Heavenward seem to get no response.  And yet, someway, somehow, God has all of these things orchestrated into a grand dance that, to us, seems like chaos or happenstance.  But He, like a masterful conductor, just smiles, because He understands the music to which we move.
