Gifts from the Sky — Thursday, February 4, 2021

There is often more gifts in nature than we realize

Shooting stars are a gift…a flash of light, with a shower of sparks

So is the dim winter sun lighting up the beauty of a little collared-dove

Or to watch the flight of a bird being lit up by bright snowy clouds

Suddenly seeing a hawk flying low over the woodpile

Or to hear the call of the Sandhill Cranes as they wing over the farmyard

Or that flash of red on a Red-winged Blackbird

Lending brightness to a grey sort of day

Hearing an enchanting song

Even in the snow, there is a delight

Full of light, wonder, and song

No matter what is going on in your life…there are always moments of awe.

What a gift.

From my world to your heart,

  1. Yes, what a gift–you and your pictures and your words. I think you are especially helpful now when all our worlds have shrunk, and you are inviting us to see the beauty around us. Many thanks.



  2. You surely do get visited by many wonderful birds….and you’re so good at taking their pictures too. Always fun to read your blog and see who’s visiting now. I love those cranes too!
