Beautiful Blue Bird

This morning on my way to work, amidst all the dreariness of a cold winter morning, I saw a glimpse of heaven before my eyes. The road I travel to work -winds past fields that house beautiful wildflowers in spring and early summer, and sunflowers in the fall. They give me something to look forward to in the morning. I like to think of them as Gods gift to me each morning. This time of year, however, there is not much to notice or take in. The bushes and brush by the creek look dead and brown, sort of lifeless...and the fields of course have no life springing forth from them. But today, the most beautiful blue bird flew in front of my car and landed to the right of the road, on one of those dead and lifeless branches that sit by the creek. It took my breath away. I so wished I would have had my camera to capture that moment....the beauty and serenity of it all.

It reminded me that in the dead and lifeless moments of our lives...God appears and brings color and life once again. How sweet is his love for us...how much he cares for us.....how he loves to give us gifts for us to relish in. Thank you Jesus for always knowing what I need before I do.
