Look Up, Look Up! - June 26, 2007
Jer 8:7 Yea, the stork in the heaven knoweth her appointed times; and the turtle and the crane and the swallow observe the time of their coming; but my people know not the judgment of the LORD.
Wow! I quickly aimed , tried to focus and make a picture of this unusual site. An Osprey, or fish hawk, with it's catch. The osprey weighs from 3 to 4.5 lbs. The body is about 20 inches long with a wingspan of about five feet.
Hosea 4:3 Therefore shall the land mourn, and every one that dwelleth therein shall languish, with the beasts of the field, and with the fowls of heaven; yea, the fishes of the sea also shall be taken away.
The Osprey had a bass in it's talons almost as big as he was. It must have weighed almost as much as he did, what strength and majesty this bird has. The normal catch is a half pound up to one and a half pounds. This may have exceeded that weight.
Mat 6:26 Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they?
Prov 30:18 There be three things which are too wonderful for me, yea, four which I know not:
The White Egret saw me approaching and flew to a distant shore. She came in for a graceful landing.What a morning of surprises. Look up and see the wonders around you.
Acts 1:8 But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.
