In an effort to kill two birds with one stone(I needed exercise. My son needed P.E.), Paul and I decided to take a bikeride along a trail that is close to our home. It’s been a long time since I’ve ridden down this particular trail, and I forgot how peaceful and enjoyable it can be. One of my favorite things about this bike trail is that it runs along a creek, and on many occasions, we have seen egrets in or near the creek. Today was no exception, and as we were heading toward home, we saw 2 beautiful egrets. Each time we would get closer to them, they would fly farther up the trail. Finally both of them flew and landed in a tree in a field across from the creek. I wished so badly that I had a camera, because it was one of those “Kodak moments.” The two birds sat majestically perched in the tree for a few minutes, and then they gracefully took to the air. It just made me appreciative of God’s beautiful creation. He certainly is a God of variety, giving us so many beautiful plants, trees, flowers, birds and all of nature to enjoy. I’m thankful I had some time today to admire His handiwork.
