Birds on the Wing & Beauty in Ugliness!

July 17, 2008

These were a bit difficult to capture and are not the best, but I thought others might enjoy them anyway. If you click on the pictures they will enlarge. Your back space will take you back to the blog. The one large bird we most see on the wing here is the Turkey Vulture.

Now, the Turkey Vulture is one pretty ugly bird…although there may be some who disagree. It is very ungainly…and not very smart, either.

Here is a link to see what they look like.

When they are on the wing, though, they are absolutely beautiful! They are so graceful. I keep hoping to see some close enough to get better pics. They sometimes just look like they are floating on air.

I find it interesting that something so ungainly, so unattractive can be so beautiful when it is lifted up in the air.

Isn’t that a lot like people? Some people are very unattractive in their physical appearance. They are very ungainly in their personalities, or they lack social graces. Yet, when they are lifted up on the Holy Spirit and moving in His grace, they are very beautiful.

We tend to look on the outward appearance; but Yahweh God sees the heart. We need to ask Him for His eyes so that we can see the hearts of people, rather than the outward appearance only.

He makes all things beautiful. ALL things. There is no one who is ugly or ungainly in His eyes. He delights in using the very people that the world looks down on to do some of His greatest work!

Oh, if we would only have the hearts and eyes to see it! I hope that you have eyes to see the beauty in the people around you…no matter how unattractive or ungainly they may look on the outside.
