But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law. (Galatians 5:22-23 NKJV)

While we were at Gatorland, I had the delight to be able to get really close to a Snowy Egret. I was taking a photo of him when he got so close I couldn’t focus the camera. I backed the zoom out and realized just how close we were.

Snowy Egret stepped so close it blurred my shot.

Snowy Egret stepped so close it blurred my shot.

I tried to give my camera to Dan to get a photo of me and the Snowy. That spooked him and he flew off a few yards. I coached him back and thankful he came.

This time I handed Dan my camera down low and he stayed put. The following photos are what Dan took of the close encounter with my Snowy Egret friend. I could have touched the bird, if I had wanted, but have you ever seen that beak up close? Looked like a sharp needle from my point of view.

I am very thankful that the Lord created such a neat bird and helped him not be afraid of me. I am glad the Lord lets us have joy from just watching His critters.

Golden Eagle – Goodness of God

Hi! Gals and Guys, this is Golden Eagle flying in for a few minutes. I remembered when I woke up this morning that this is my Father’s World. The gold is His , the silver belongs to Him, and He owns the cattle on a thousand hills. I rolled out of my nest early this morning and everything was wet. You know it rained really hard yesterday night. I stretched my wings out so the glistening sunlight could warm them up. I began to preen my feathers, sometimes they get really messy in the morning. I heard the melodious songs of other birds and smiled when I thought of the goodness of God. You know, some things are so simple that we often miss them. God is spelled G-O-D and good is spelled G-O-O-D. They’re almost the same. For you see, God is good all the time. He sends the rain and the sunshine on the saved and the lost.

Jesus said “Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin: And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed (dressed) like one of these.”(Matthew 6:28-29)

Jesus also said “Behold the fowls of the air: (the birds) for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they?” You see, the Bible tells us of the Creator-God . He says that we were created just a “little lower than the angels.” You humans are much better than us birds. You really didn’t evolve.

Hey kids, we all have our troubles and problems. When Jesus says to think about the lilies, the flowers, the fowls, and the birds He is telling us to think about God. Put your mind on the Lord Jesus Christ. We do this by reading the Bible, the Word of God. Every day we should read the Bible. And with God’s help we should believe the Word of God and try to obey the Word of God.

Psalm 2:2-3 says that “his delight is in the law of the Lord (the Word of God): and in his law doth he meditate day and night.”

He delights in the Bible and thinks about God. In my nest I have ice-cream every night because that’s what I delight in! Jesus continues, “And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.” Thinking about God will make you a success every time!

Focus on God, the Lord Jesus Christ, and He will work a miracle in you. Get saved and His life will flow through you and He will pour out His blessings on all the people you come in contact with. This is my Father’s world.

See ya!!!
