When I saw the bird with it’s long flowing head feathers, I immediately began to photograph him.
How beautiful he was!
Ruby colored eyes and a long, sleek beak.
He was tall, with black feathers closely hugging his neck.
When I look at creatures God has made, I marvel at His works and I am blessed by the privilege of seeing them.
I was thinking today about people.
So often, we look at ourselves in a negative way.
We don’t feel as if we are worth much.
We think of ourselves as unattractive and unimportant.
What if—just for consideration—birds were the most intelligent beings on the planet with minds like people and all people had the minds of birds?
Just think of how the birds would look at us!
They might take a photograph and say,
“Look at that human! He’s beautiful! He has clear, brown eyes and sleek black hair. He has such a kind looking face.”
“Look at that human! She’s perfect! Red hair and eyes of blue. Look! I think she’s smiling at us!”
We forget that God has made us in a wonderful way.
Just look at us!
We stand tall.
We have fingers that do fine motor skills.
We run and jump.
We speak and sing.
We have hair!
And beautiful eyes!
If another creature had a mind like ours, they would see us as wonderful creations of God.
Why don’t we see ourselves that way?
I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.
