For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse: Romans 1:20 The beauty and power of God is made manifest through his creation.
In my front yard, there's a short five foot light pole that's been dormant since my habitation of my current home. It's gas powered and since I no longer use gas in my home as an energy source, the usage of the light has ceased. At the top of the pole is a broken light fixture in which a blue Jay has now taken up residence. I caught my sons the other day poking around this light pole for they had discovered this nest and where very fascinated with it and it's content. To their surprise there were two shiny small blue eggs in it ready for hatching. I immediately told them to put the nest back, to not touch the eggs, and to stop poking around with it.
This morning on my way to work I walked right past a mother Blue Jay sitting on her eggs staring me straight in the face protecting her eggs as opposed to flying off as birds often do if you even think about walking their way. The mom chose to protect her legacy verses abandoning it in the face of perceived danger or threat. I just thought it was something interesting to note and that amongst all the chaos, negative news headlines, and stresses of the of the day, that I had a close encounter with a slice of beauty and nature at it's finest.
Remember, there is beauty everywhere. We're surrounded by beauty, and it behooves us to stop every now and then to recognize it, admire it, and to appreciate it. All though life is a series of test, trials, and difficult situations with small pauses of rest, it's beautiful, worth living, and very valuable!
