He waits on bended bough.
Tilts his head and scans the ground.
I am ever so thankful for moments like these. An unexpected surprise in nature, catching me off guard, instantly uplifting my spirits. And this spirit I have is the very thing that connects to the Spirit in nature. When you’re open to it, you can feel the Spirit all around especially in nature.
Just that morning when I spotted the hawk, I read these verses about God:
The depths of the earth are in His hand,
and the mountain peaks belong to Him.
The sea is His, for He made it.
His hands formed the dry land. Ps 95:4-5
Beauty was made for us. To provide for us and to give us joy. Nature without God is dead. How empty the thought! Random cells with no purpose? No hope… because nothing was meant to be? I’ll pass on that idea. Enjoy the blessings of nature but more importantly the One who made it.
Amen! And thank you! Beautiful sketch!
Thanks Dawn! 😀

Thank you for adding to your site.
I so love your posts. Glad I found them. This is beautiful! And I love that line “Nature without God is dead.”
Thanks Mary Anne!! Your site is gorgeous, btw!!!
Thank you so much! I love how every corner of the world has unique beauty. Thanks for sharing the beauty in your corner!
Surround yourself with nature and you wrap yourself up in God; that’s comforting, warm and beautiful …
Oh yes!! Love that statement, Gene! 😀
Lovely watercolor. Thanks for posting the photo too so I can see how you chose to make the composition.
I do agree that seeing something different in nature can be so exciting. The other day while driving home from town, I saw two red-shouldered hawks mating. I had never seen that before.
Wow! That would be exciting to see! Lucky Ducky! Thanks for the kind comment.
Thanks Alanna! 🙂
