After the heavy rains last night, this young red tail was drying out on the perch early this morning. His high watch was timely as I was beginning to dip down in consciousness feeling the heaviness of the news. A signal that more time is needed in prayer and meditation.
The hawk didn't stay around long, perhaps my standing at the open slider door, snapping away with the camera disturbed his peace. I was thankful though, to catch a quick glimpse of those bright red tail feathers as his powerful wings took to the sky.
So if you happen to be reading this just now, the uplifting message is meant for you, too. Keep thoughts on high. Angels surround you with God's love, to guide and protect you, and bless you this day.
Love and peace,
