This morning I met Rebecca and Caleb at the airport. They are visiting for a few days. We went straight to the lake house.
Once we unloaded the car and got things in order, I lifted Caleb up so we could look at the lake and the beautiful fall leaves. I told Caleb about the special birds that God sends to the lake that remind me that He loves me and cares for me. And I asked Caleb what kind of special bird did he think God would send to us today. A few minutes later, a blue heron arrived.
What a unique and elegant bird. It was fascinating to watch it move so slowly and deliberately as it scanned the water for fish. Rebecca was able to take a few more pictures of this beautiful bird later in the day.
Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows. James 1:17
I am thankful for the gifts that surround me each day. Give me eyes to continue to see them even in the midst of the hard things of life.
