Look Up, Look Up! - June 26, 2007

The turtle looks up and he sees something. I had walked past one pond and as I was returning to the first pond on a short walk. In the distance I saw an osprey diving, but I missed seeing what it was diving after.

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?

What a marvelous thing to see. Who would have believed this, but we see it as it was. Some do tricks, this was no trick picture.

Prov 30:18 There be three things which are too wonderful for me, yea, four which I know not:
Prov 30:19 The way of an eagle in the air; the way of a serpent upon a rock; the way of a ship in the midst of the sea; and the way of a man with a maid.

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.
Acts 1:9 And when he had spoken these things, while they beheld, he was taken up; and a cloud received him out of their sight.
Acts 1:10 And while they looked stedfastly toward heaven as he went up, behold, two men stood by them in white apparel;
Acts 1:11 Which also said, Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven? this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven.
