Life sometimes gets so busy. Life happens. The days just whirl by. I don't know about you, but my days have been a blur lately. There was one day, recently, where I actually had no where to be! I could not believe it. I kept checking my calendar just to be sure.
It was a wonderful day!
I kept hearing a voice staying, "Be still..and know...that I am God."
So, I went out on my front porch and just sat. Usually, I sit in the backyard overlooking the lagoon. For some reason, today was different. I opted for the front porch. It was wonderful. There was a slight breeze, and the Spanish Moss was just gently swaying in the trees. I could smell a mix of cedar and gardenia as the breeze carried it by.
I felt like I was being watched. So, I sat still a little bit more.
About five feet away, a visitor sat on a limb, camouflaged in the Spanish Moss. He sat and watched me for quite some time. I was amazed at how intrigued we both were with each other. He patiently waited while I went in the house to retrieve my camera. I think he was a Cooper's Hawk. Quite handsome and quite large with brilliant colouring. What a photo I took! I thanked him for his kindness, and sat a while longer.
"Be still...and know...that I am God" popped in my head again.
Then, he was gone.
I am so thankful I did not miss out on the special meeting.
