For the past several days our state  has been experiencing the effects of a tropical storm.  Yesterday  was the most intense time for my community. Trees bending under the stress of high winds and pelting rain; flood waters rising.

Earlier today there was a break from the rain. I ventured out with my camera. While looking at insects on a bush, a bird began laughing. Well, that’s what it sounded like to me. I couldn’t recall ever hearing anything like it. As I walked under a tree and gazed up between the branches, I saw what looked like a blue jay. He continued his singing/laughing combination. As I stood there watching, he changed his song to a more familiar call, loud and clear. I heard no other birds. I looked around–I could see no other birds.

After such turmoil in ALL the trees in our area, he still chose to sit in one and sing. Leaves that looked shredded have been collecting on the ground, torn into pieces by the hard wind and rain. Some of the branches that once held the birds are broken and fallen as well. Yet….he sings.

Later, I thought of the song,  "How Great Thou Art."  A line from the lyrics states, "Then sings my soul, my Savior, God, to Thee."

Throughout my life, I want to "sing" to God with all that I do, trusting Him—even in a storm.

    Is that a pic of yours of the blue jay? Amazing. Going through many many storms lately one after another…out of breath but holding tight to Jesus. Dog died. Aunt died within 24 hours of each other. Son off to college. Issues with 14 yr old. Multiple ER visits( three in one week last week) It is good to know that God is there in these stomrs, but I am READY for some smooth waters! LOL!

    he sun hid behind a cloak of clouds, coming out for only a few moments to turn almost a ruby red before it faded from sight. The water was calm as a cool breeze swept over the lake.
