Hang On Tight

When the weather is nice, I like to spend my prayer time on my back deck. It’s my happy place: private and quiet, with a beautiful view of the trees and sky. It feels like a front row seat to God’s creation as birds dart about and bees visit the flowers I’ve planted in various pots strewn about. Witnessing it all draws me closer to the Creator.

Today, as I sat gazing out over the trees, I saw a bird land on a branch. I guess the bird was heavier than we both realized because the branch dipped dramatically under his weight. Had he not been hanging on, claws clutched tight around that branch, he would have slid right off into thin air.

It felt like a lesson on the importance of holding on.

  1. I love how you relate a simple sighting of a bird, which most of us would ignore, to the awesomeness of our Creator! Your posts are amazing and thought provoking! xoxo

    • Thanks so much Mom! I know there is SO much passing me by that I’m not aware of. It seems it’s only when I’m in prayer that I’m finally still and focused enough to get the lesson I feel He wants me to learn.
