We spent the day at the cabin today. It was pretty windy during the day making it difficult to fully enjoy the beauty, but it calmed down later on, so I went out for a walk just before dusk. It was so quiet. I didn’t do a power walk, just kind of a meander. I would stop every now and again to take a good look around and listen for any wildlife. There is a large rock about halfway down the large hill by the cabin, so I headed there to just hang out. As I was enjoying the scenery, I heard a bird call. It wasn’t one that I was familiar with. There was a single tone, then a long series of trills. It would start on one note, then the next series would start about a fifth above the first. The trills echoed in the otherwise quieted hillside. I was mesmerized. I don’t know how long I stood there listening. I never did see the bird that sung the beautiful melody. But I certainly did appreciate it’s song.
I Found God today in a beautiful, mesmerizing bird song.
