The circle of life

Today I have been blessed to be able to participate in a wonderful thing!

I was sitting at my computer and felt something crawl across my foot, thought it was a fly or something so I didn’t pay too much attention to it…

A few minutes later I saw this in the kitchen floor

Baby quail

It was a baby quail, I think…

So I picked it up very carefully and took some pictures of it and sang to it while I took it outside to let it go…

There are a lot of nests around the house so I had no idea of who it belonged to.

When I put it down on the ground by the trees, it bolted for the woods. Sure hope it was able to find it’s way back to its mother…

At that moment I could feel the love of all creation returning to me as the little bird ran out of sight!!!

Times like this just make me feel so good to be alive and part of this beautiful dance we call life!

Thank you to the LONG LIFE HAPPINESS ONE WHOSE WAYS ARE BEAUTIFUL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      I don’t know how to put it into words the feeling I have right now… So I’ll just say that love will hold everything together… and give you all another look at this beautiful little creation of our God!

  1. You have been blessed once again by the magic of life.

  2. How awesome to be able to hold the tiny bird in your hand. I've only seen quick glimpses of baby quails running. What a blessing this one came to you!

  3. This was truly a wonderful experience Mike. Now you know why I am so in love with nature and all its creatures.

  4. Mike: May your kindness be rewarded with a wonderful Summer full of nature. The Grand Canyon should help that come true.

  5. Beautiful post. Mike, I hope that bird made it to safety. I do believe our wild friends know whom they can trust.

  6. God reveals himself daily through his creation.
