Window Wonders

I love being able to look out the window while sitting at my desk. I see so many things. Well, maybe not things per se, That glimpse of the natural creation opens my eyes to see not only what is outside my window but also what is around me, and what is within me.

Do you know how amazing it is to see a humming bird whiz up to a branch level with your eyesight and settle? It folds its wings and sits. And it's tiny. A little speck I can barely see in the tree across the driveway. I only know it is there because I watched its flight and landing. I'm used to seeing humming birds in flight, when their whirring wings disguise how small and vulnerable they really are. To understand a different side of such a delicate and beautiful creature holds such a sense of wonder for me.

What message do you find in God's creation? What wonders have you seen recently? They're out there. I'm glad for my window to keep me looking.

  1. This is a cool post... I want to hear what others have to say. :)

    I love how quiet the sunrise is as light wakes up the world. I like the sunset too when the light is filtering through the trees. Light so changes our perspective. We can't see without it, physically or spiritually. I want to be careful to look and listen too.
