|An Indigo Bunting at my feeder|
One such treasured gift came and sat on my bird feeder yesterday. For the very first time, an Indigo Bunting came to feed, and I was blessed to get a picture of this beautiful bird. His feathers are the richest indigo that one can ever imagine. God's handiwork never ceases to take my breath away. Then, again, today, a female Bunting came to sit at the feeder followed by a Painted Bunting. I could not catch a picture of the painted Bunting, but he was spectacular. I felt blessed! God had allowed me to see such beauty if only for a fleeting moment. What an artist the Lord is and how inspired I am by His goodness.

His sight so why do we allow the troubles of the day to overwhelm us with fear and worry? Can we change anything by stewing over it? The answer is "no".
If we would begin each day anticipating a gift from God and then taking a moment to jot down those that we observe, we would find ourselves focused on praising Him instead of bemoaning our circumstances. Maybe it is a phone call from a friend. Perhaps it is a letter from a loved one, or even the sight of a rainbow (my personal favorite) that reminds us of God's promise to never again destroy the earth with a flood that makes us smile. Seeing God's handiwork and blessing in our lives will change our outlook, stop the worry and eliminate the fear that rises up to put a damper on our day.
Every new day is an adventure with God if we will open our eyes, our ears and our hearts to Him. He has a gift each day with which to bless us. Lets spend our time seeking Him knowing that He has given to us all that we need for life and godliness! Selah!
