Several Sundays ago, Larry and I were on our way to church shortly before 9 a.m. The sky was overcast, with a light snow falling continually. I lamented to my husband about the lack of sunlight, and I looked about for some bit of beauty.
As though God heard my thoughts, a cotton tail rabbit appeared, bounding across the street. His enthusiasm and exuberance immediately lifted my spirits. Perhaps I am attributing qualities to this rabbit that he did not really possess, but to my beauty-starved eyes, he was an answer to my unspoken prayer.
God, in His infinite wisdom, created a world filled with unexpected glimpses of beauty. Our town of Loveland, Colorado is especially blessed as we come upon everything from a cotton tail rabbit to small herds of elk and, occasionally, a magnificent eagle. And I am reminded of His love for all of His creatures.
Joy for today: smiling over the antics of a cotton tail.
