Psalm 148

On Friday morning, I woke up at 5:30 which is unusually early for me.  I heard a cardinal singing.  I went to the kitchen window and saw it.  A robin began to sing and I watched a pair of ducks fly by.  It was like they couldn’t wait to start the day by praising God.  Psalm 148 says, “Praise the Lord from the earth, you…flying birds…”

Tomorrow is Monday and many seem to go into “miserable mode” when it arrives.  The birds around here face hawks and cats almost every day.  They sang anyway.   Instead of expecting Monday monotony, let’s, like the birds, start our day praising God.  Even if you don’t sing well, SING to our king!  I hope you have a magnificent Monday!

Isaiah 34:15

Have you been watching the current nesting bald eagle on the Decorah, Iowa eagle cam website?  If not, you can check this out and get alerts when eagle action happens:  http://www.decoraheaglecamalerts.com/

Recently, I ran across a verse in Isaiah about a motherly nesting owl.  Today I discovered a website with a wide variety of nesting birds you can watch in breeding season, including owls:  http://www.viewbirds.com/

Do you love birds?  I can’t wait to experience the mostly hidden nesting life of birds!

 

Genesis 1:20-23

One day I saw several bird species on and around our city’s river.  Bald Eagles soared, Canada Geese honked, ducks dove underwater, pigeons playfully swooped, and a gull grabbed a small fish.

I started to wonder how many bird species God made.  We have a book, “Birds of the World” that is about an inch thick.  It boasts it has over 800 species covered.

After a check online, I found that wiki.answers.com says there are approximately 10,000 bird species in the world.  Our Creator knows the actual number.

Isn’t it something that birds are only part of what God accomplished on the 5th day?  Amazing!
