Is it your wisdom that makes the hawk soar and spread its wings toward the south? ~ Job 39:26, NLT
My family and I live in New Jersey, nicknamed 'The Garden State,' sometime back in the late 1800s. While our house is situated in a more urban area, located on the borderline of the city of Trenton (our state capitol), we do have many parks and wooded areas nearby, enabling us to enjoy seeing some of God's beautiful and majestic creatures -- like this one here.
Surprisingly, this regal looking hawk has been making frequent visits to our backyard lately, and yesterday stayed long enough for my husband to grab these snapshots while it struck a pose or two on, of all things, our back gate!
And would you just look at those piercing eyes! Kind of gives new meaning to the term 'watching something like a hawk, doesn't it?
It's moments like these that I am so in awe of the beauty of God's creations. I think of what His Word says in Genesis 1:31:
God saw all that He had made, and it was very good
I hope that you enjoy seeing this beautiful bird of prey as much as we have!
