THOUGHTS ON A HUMMINGBIRD


"THOUGHTS ON A HUMMINGBIRD"

God is the author of this exquisite creature -
suspended in its delicate pose of infinite grace.


The same God fashioned each of us with delicate care and precision out of abundant love. As I grow spiritually in sobriety, my mind can sometimes touch this truth. When I touch this truth, it brings me closer to loving myself and closer to loving you.


This "light as air" winged beauty is suspended mid air - reaching for every possible drop of life-giving water.


I too am suspended in this life -
right in the middle of AA and Alanon -
reaching for "every" drop of life-giving recovery.


On another note:
Hummingbird - an "H" word. Love the letter "H".
Let's see:

Hummingbirds are my favorite of all the birds we have out here. I get more hummers every year than anyone can believe, sometimes 30 at a time around my 3 feeders on the porch.

Nature teaches me (always) more about God than anything else ever does. I am blessed daily to know that God is all around me.

Beautiful picture, beautiful post.
