Close look

Saturday, December 15, 2012

Nature is all around us to discover and enjoy.
Take a closer look at the wonder!

Seeing God's creatures from afar is good,
but look closer at the beauty-see the wonder!

When we apprecate the glories of God's creation,
Our hearts are changed, and our spirits quieted.

Take time today.
What do you see?
Be thankful for the beauty!

    There's nothing like a lovely bird visiting your feeder to make you quiet and appreciate nature.

    No, I did not personally take the photos. I really love them, and have them in my personal collection of photos from friends.

    So appreciate the reminder to pay attention to the gifts of life all around us. I do love Cardinals too. They are special to me because I was raised in the Northwest and never saw them until I moved east. Thrilling. (And red IS my favorite color!)

    Cardinals are my favorite birds. We don't often get them at our bird feeders.
