After writing so many posts about my journey to faith, I felt the need to take a breather. Not only am I in need of something more upbeat, but I thought you might enjoy it too. God sends us many small blessings if we’re only willing to open our eyes to see them. A few years ago, my husband and I moved into the country, and I’ve enjoyed the wildlife that wanders into our back yard. I hold my breath with each visitor, praying to capture their innocence and beauty on film. Several of their visits coincided with my grandchildren’s, providing me with the added joy seen through the wonder in a child’s eyes.
We have a family of bunnies who appear in the early morning and evening.
Occasionally, a family of turkeys wanders through.
And I’ve had several encounters this summer with butterflies who were willing to pose for me.
The simple gift of their presence in my yard brings me joy and allows me to revel in God’s creation.
What simple reminders does He send your way?
