Three Little Birds: Faith, Hope, and Love is a raw and true story written during the life and loss of Jacqueline Martin’s third child, James Robert. This story is meant to inspire and counsel readers, especially those facing a difficult journey of their own. James was born prematurely and with a rare congenital heart defect on May 17, 2011, and passed away on September 14, 2011. Three Little Birds: Faith, Hope, and Love is a testimony to the power of prayer and provides proof that God made sure Jacqueline and her family did not have to face this painful journey to physical and emotional wholeness alone. Jacqueline’s story speaks about her personal experience as a mom and about her attempt to live her life faithfully as a Christian while she managed the toughest trial of her life during a “parent’s worst nightmare”—losing a child. Living life as a Christian means living life to a higher calling. Jacqueline’s story is about taking a parent’s worst nightmare and turning it into something extraordinary by improving the lives of others one baby step at a time. Imbued in Jacqueline’s writing is the Martin family’s message of faith, hope, and love in a direct metaphor for the three little birds. The three little birds are represented by her three children, as well as the greatest gifts of God. Everyone endures hardships in their lives and receives tests of their faith during these difficult times. These tests of faith enable us to continue to count as well as remember our blessings. They seem to hide the world’s nature and beautiful colors, silencing the chirping and singing of birds. During difficult times, community and help from others allow us to continue standing and to get through the trials. With the help of others, the world’s colors shine brightly and open our eyes to different experiences, trials, and journeys in our life as well as the journeys of others.

The human brain is desperately fragile in some ways and incredibly powerful in many others. Dementia is the quintessential example of mental fragility, but dealing with dementia can awaken the full power of the brain in those who are obliged to care for its victims. In "Love and Little Birds," author John Radway shares the journal of his struggle to cope with the dementia that eventually claimed the life of his wife, Claire, at the age of seventy-five. Divided into two parts, the first section describes Radway's attempts to grasp the meaning of dementia, while the second section includes a very personal chronicle of his tortuous journey through the ruins of his previous life into a new one. In this memoir, Radway seeks to provide guidance to others who are caring for someone struggling to deal with a dying mind-the sad prognosis for this disease. He communicates the emotional toll it takes on the caregivers, who are fully aware of what is happening to their loved one. "Love and Little Birds" provides raw insight into a caregiver's world and shares the importance of taking care of the self so as not to be destroyed.

"These pages represent the accumulated wisdom of more than thirty years that David Martin has spent as a writer, teacher, editor, and inspiration. Fine Lines (a literary journal) has been his gift to the world, a champion of literacy and lyricism, a 'lighthouse' to countless writers of all ages, from all over the globe, but it is not his only gift. In this collection of his writing, Martin invites us to see the world through his attentive eyes, bearing witness to what endures, what matters: a mother's love, the flicker of a firefly, the mystery of a dream, a beloved teacher, a triumphant student, the power of myth, and most of all, the written word. Inside his vision, readers are shown the richness, challenges, and rewards of the individual's effort to write, as he says, 'my own internal rhythms and play my own tunes.' This book is a song, a gift, in which we can all take pleasure." -Dr. John Price, Department of English, University of Nebraska at Omaha

It’s the year 2020, and in Sydney, John Dean is making plans – big plans. He’s seen the writing on the wall. Temperatures of over 45 degrees are a regular occurrence and sea levels are rising; severe drought has meant harsh water restrictions, and the economy has slowed almost to a standstill. But John is not going to sit and suffer; he’ll do whatever it takes to protect his family, and he’s taking action. This is the story of how he moves his family away from a society on the brink of destruction to create a haven and make a fresh start. The Dean family and those who join them on their farm pull together to create a self-sufficient life as civilisation crumbles around them. They struggle to learn farming techniques and long-lost skills, but they survive. Then a threat comes from the north when refugees stream into northern Australia to escape heat, flooding and starvation. The Dean group must do the unimaginable: they must kill to defend the farm and their lives.

This Three Little Birds Cross Stitch contains a picture of three fabulous baby birds in a nest. When you open this ebook and you want to see the cross stitch pattern clearly you have two options print out the pattern (I don’t recommend it as this will cost you more money! And it kills trees!) Or Simply click on your View tab at the top of your windows screen and enlarge the picture. I like to see the cross stitch pattern at 150% or larger as you can see each square easily. You will notice that the cross stitch pattern cannot be read easily when they are viewed at 100%. The reason for this is simple if the pattern was any larger the download time would take ages. The color graph gives you the DMC colors that you will need to complete the picture. The Projects should be completed on 14-count Aida material. Total number of stitches are 15000. Complete this project using 165 DMC colored cottons. This finished cross stitch pattern may be sold for any price you wish.

Bring Down the Little Birds

How does a contemporary woman with a career as a poet, professor, and editor experience motherhood with one small child, another soon to be born, and her own mother suddenly diagnosed with a brain tumor and AlzheimerÕs? The dichotomy between life as a mother and life as an artist and professional is a major theme in modern literature because often the two seem irreconcilable. In Bring Down the Little Birds, Carmen GimŽnez Smith faces this seeming irreconcilability head-on, offering a powerful and necessary lyric memoir to shed light on the difficultiesÑand joysÑof being a mother juggling work, art, raising children, pregnancy, and being a daughter to an ailing mother, and, perhaps most important, offering a rigorous and intensely imaginative contemplation on the concept of motherhood as such. Writing in fragmented yet coherent sections, the author shares with us her interior monologue, affording the reader a uniquely honest, insightful, and deeply personal glimpse into a womanÕs first and second journeys into motherhood. GimŽnez Smith begins Bring Down the Little Birds by detailing the relationship with her own mother, from whom her own concept of motherhood originated, a conception the author continually reevaluates and questions over the course of the book. Combining fragments of thought, daydreams, entries from notebooks both real and imaginary, and real-life experiences, GimŽnez Smith interrogates everything involved in becoming and being a mother for both the first and second time, from wondering what her children will one day know about her own Òsecret lifeÓ to meditations on the physical effects of pregnancy as well as the myths, the nostalgia, and the glorification of motherhood. While GimŽnez Smith incorporates universal experiences of motherhood that other authors have detailed throughout literature, what separates her book from these many others is that her reflections are captured in a style that establishes an intimacy and immediacy between author and reader through which we come to know the secret life of a mother and are made to question our own conception of what motherhood really means.

Moving to a new place can be scary. You have to leave people and places that are familiar to you for the unknown. You may even feel you’ll never make another friend—at least none as good as the ones you left behind. Now imagine you move to a place where they speak a different language and they have unfamiliar customs. How would that make you feel? Author E. M. Bradbury’s Little Bird faces that problem. When she and her family move to a new tree near a pond, Little Bird wants nothing more than to make new friends, but the frogs that live in the pond are so different. Discover how Little Bird and the frogs—well, most of them—eventually become friends. It wasn’t always easy, but they kept at it. Little Bird shows that animals that are different can be friends if they’re willing to work hard at it and embrace their similarities. Just because you’re different doesn’t mean you can’t be friends.
