Even the stork in the sky knows her appointed seasons, and the dove, the swift and the thrush observe the time of their migration. But my people do not know the requirements of the LORD. Jeremiah 8:7 (NIV)
It is morning, and there is a little bit of light starting to fill my room. I can hear my dog signaling; she needs to go outside. As I stand on my porch, I stop to look at the beautiful landscape. Since the temperature dropped through the night, dew has formed on everything. What a wonderful morning!
Bird songs fill the air along with a fresh cool breeze. Everything is renewed and waiting for the sun.
Summer is a great season. All the animals that were born in spring are roaming around. The mothers teach babies how to live in this world. The young are getting bigger every day. The cycle of life continues for all species, even man.
Just as the animals in nature teach their young how to live, God gave me an instruction book, the Bible. Animals have instincts. I have the Holy Spirit in me. When I pay attention to His voice inside of me, I stay out of trouble.
As I continue gazing upon the landscape, I thank God for all He has given and done for me.
Dear Lord, I know you have a lot to teach me through your Word and nature. Help me to be still and listen.
