This book also has a spot under each bird where you can fill in “Date & Location Seen”. I have decided to start updating these sections AND try to get pictures of each bird. Over the last two days I have seen a Spotted Sandpiper, Blue Heron (daily occurrence) and a Horned Grebe in our back yard. I was able to get a picture of the Sandpiper and Heron (I had an earlier picture of the Grebe)…here are the pictures…

I went fishing this evening with a friend....The short story is that we did not catch any fish. The longer story is it really didn't matter...the weather was great and the sites were amazing. God was putting on an incredible show.
Looking back at these pictures tonight reminded me of a verse I read this morning out of the New Testament that says "For since the creation of the world God's invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse".
To me, it takes more faith to believe that the world we live in just happened by chance than by a Creator who had (and still does have) a plan. Why are the sunsets so beautiful the mountains so majestic, the smells so memorable and the sounds so soothing? Is this really just by chance??
