A Prayer For THis Day

Another amazing discovery due to the keen observation of my great-nephew Andrew, and as I Looked up rewarded by these beautiful photos, this heartfelt prayer was birthed ~

Father
help me
to
never
look back
look down
look around
but
always
look
up
 to You
because
You have
all the answers
to my life
Amen!

I look up to the mountains--does my help come from there? My help comes from the LORD, who made heaven and earth! ~ Psalm 121:1-2

Watching and Waiting!

These photos are the results of the keen observation of my great nephew Andrew. He sighted this Black Crowned Night Heron and her nest above the basket ball court in his neighborhood,  and knew that it would spark my interest.

On my first visit earlier this week, I confirmed the nest location. On my second visit this morning at 8:00am, I was delighted that the nest builder was also present, watching and waiting. 

I hope that you enjoy the photos as much as I enjoyed capturing them on camera!

 “Blessed is the one who listen to me, watching daily at my gates, waiting beside my doors!” ~ Proverbs 8:34 (ESV)
Today at 8:00pm  (06/04/2011), I visited the nest again, and was delighted to see a young baby Heron.
