Red-Tailed Hawk Flying


On the way North, I spotted a beautiful red-tailed hawk sitting in a tree. Unfortunately I disturbed it when I pulled over for a photo and it flew off accompanied by a red-winged blackbird. I took the photo on the fly, literally. Sometimes God shows up, easily recognizable in Beauty. Other days, it is harder to find God in all things.

I dropped my car off at the garage this morning for a two-hour job, hoping to be on my way to my next school later today. That did not happen. The task turned out to be a bit more complicated and tonight I am in a humble hotel room (wishing I were next door at my usual place) I am tired and cranky. Internet is spotty. The weather is lousy–wind, cold, hail, and possible snow yet. The morning at the school went well; the afternoon less so. The overtime I had hoped to gather from today’s travels won’t happen now which sort of sucks. I am trying to decide how to reframe it but I suspect God has not shown me all the details yet. 

The only hope I have is that a good night’s sleep will restore my spirit to a less cantankerous state.

When was a time you felt like a storm cloud got stuck over your head?



About sstyves

A Canadian prairie girl rooted in Ignatian spirituality, I seek God in all things. Whether I catch a glimpse of the Divine and delight in its presence in nature or in the beauty of an encounter with someone, I am ever so grateful that I can recognize the Creator. I greet each new day with hope and happiness, expecting blessings and miracles because I am created to praise, love and serve God. This blog is one way of realizing that through my writings, prayers, and photography. To God be the Glory!
