In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.
We praise You, O LORD, for making everything. How amazing it is that the Creator of heaven and earth would send His only Son to make a way for us to be saved from our sins. What love You have for Your children that You would provide for us, bless us so richly, and continually show us signs and wonders of Your beautiful creation. Open our eyes to see and ears to hear, and give us hearts to worship You, O God. In Jesus’ mighty name we pray. Amen.
It’s the beginning of May and the swallows are back! I have seen swallows come and go, but this is the first year in Ireland that I desperately longed for their arrival. They are messengers that summer is here and so they are one of Ireland’s favorite birds.
Today I was reminded of the words I read a couple of weeks ago. A precious sister in Christ shared this with me:
A lovely reminder of the Creator who continues to bless us during Covid 19 even with bright yellow daffodils smiling happily at the world!
It’s amazing to watch or hear someone praising the LORD for His wonderful creation. There is something so special, so sweet, so encouraging about it.
This morning I watched two swallows happily flying over our garden. I went outside trying to take a picture and make a video. These birds, however, were too fast to capture on camera. I saw a little one sitting on a wire, but I thought it is a Robin, and so I ignored it. Well, did you know that the color of the young ones is more of a pale orange?
There aren’t that many in our area yet. What is the “chance” of them passing our garden and my “luck” that I’m looking outside the window that exact moment? As C.H. Spurgeon said:
“Blessed is that man who has done with chance, who never speaks of luck; but believes that, from the least even to the greatest, all things are ordained of the Lord. We dare not leave out the least event. The creeping of an aphis upon a rosebud, is as surely arranged by the decree of Providence, as the march of a pestilence through a nation.”
Praise your Creator and what He has done for you today.
