Give thanks unto the LORD, call upon his name, make known his deeds among the people. (1 Chronicles 16:8 KJV)
One thing is all Stephen will let us be thankful for. So I won’t mention the other 9,000 things I am thankful for.
The Lord has given me an interest in our avian friends, the birds, and it has brought so many blessings from it. When observing them, their colors, behavior, the variety, and just the wonder of them, I can’t help but be THANKFUL!
The Lord and I have a running conversation when birdwatching or looking for photos of birds for my blog. Here are some of my thought and talks with Him:
“Wow! Look at you! Lord you really created them neat”
“Lord, what an amazing coloring.”
“Amazing! How did you think of so many different designs and colors?”
“(Chuckle) Lord you sure have a sense of humor on some of these birds!”
“Lord, you caused the donkey to talk, could you bring that bird out where I can see it.?” (Thankfully, it has worked several times. Thank You Lord.)
On and on the conversations go. I love the Lord and I am so thankful to Him for that interest and the love He has put in me for His Creation, especially the birds.
Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ; (Ephesians 5:20 KJV)
