It’s colder today than yesterday. Only a few brave birds make their way to the feeder.
As I sit on the deck and listen to the rain on the metal roof and the wind chimes … it’s so peaceful. Whenever I step out on the deck Gabby comes running from wherever she is on the property; meowing all the way. She bounds up the steps and jumps up into my lap, where she curls into a ball then snuggles in. A black bird sits at the feeder and sings a beautiful song. There’s a sole red cardinal sitting in the tree across the way.
It’s spring and the hummingbirds are back. A pair of the tiny birds chase each other away from the feeder and then return one by one to drink the sugar and water nectar. Wash, rinse, repeat.
If I sit very still and wait patiently, God reveals His creation to me in the awesome beauty of nature.
Be still, and know that I am God. Psalm 46:10
