Yes, this post is about a bird. But not any ole' bird....a HAWK!
Walking by my back door the other day, this is what i saw...
Now we've had birds on our back porch (I wrote about that here) but never a hawk for goodness sake.
The majestic part is that he was on the back porch and we got to see him up close and personal.
The gross part was that he had picked up some small creature and was eating it_ like tearing it apart.
I spared you those details & pics. :)
I was kinda awe struck as I watched this bird with massive talons that are as sharp as razors...
just sit there on the back ledge.
We watched him finish his meal and then just stand there.
He was very aware of us and I couldn't wait to see his wing span and watch (snap) as he flew.
It's the little things and i know this.
But i'm trying to be more intentional about the little things that happen in everyday life and seeing that hawk reminded me that
it's not just another normal day.
To see something like this.... but i could miss it.
i could totally miss this show-out in my day if i'm not intentional_ about picking out the little things.
About finding those things that happen throughout my day that are majestic_ a God thing_ that are out of the ordinary.
I saw someone who had come up with a list of "intentional happenings" throughout their day.
So i came up with a few ....
And then just like that_ he flew....
