The Beauty of God's Creation...

A while ago I posted about
the birds that have been visiting
in our backyard.
We have found ourselves
staring intently out the dining room window,
watching with deep interest,
the beauty and behavior of these feathered friends.
We are in constant amusement.
We have enjoyed, so much,
learning more about these fascinating creatures,
designed by our Marvelous Creator.
We just can't get enough.

We've had a 'new' feathered friend
visiting this week...

A bluejay

We have, also, had our regular visitors.
After supper, today, we enjoyed watching
two sets of cardinals (2 'mamas' and 2 'daddies').
We see the cardinals together, often,
and love to see them 'shop' for food together,
share their food, walk together, etc...
There was a brief 'spat' between the two couples
as they were occupying the same area,
but they worked it out.
The cardinal is Ally's favorite...

She, especially, loves to say cardinal in Greek.
She loves the sound of it.

We also spent time this week
trying to identify this bird...

He travels often with his "wife", too.
We were excited to discover
that he is a house finch.

In addition to the birds,
we have enjoyed this...

courtesy of our neighbor's yard.

We love to see the blossoms!

Isn't God's creation absolutely beautiful?!
Have you, too, taken time to enjoy and appreciate it?
What a miracle it is!

"For the invisible things of him
from the creation of the world are clearly seen..."
~ Romans 1:20

"The works of the LORD are great,
sought out of all them that have pleasure therein."
~ Psalm 111:2
