Birds and Breakfast – Today’s Gifts


Sometimes things come up quickly, like this morning’s breakfast with a few colleagues. The plan was hatched a couple of days ago. Date, time and place were decided on and…. poof… there we were this morning munching on toast and chewing on the challenges facing us in he upcoming school year. It was good. Good times, good discussion, good friends.

One of the group suggested we check out the osprey nest at a local sand and gravel company. He read about it in the newspaper. So I grabbed my camera on the way to breakfast and afterward he and I went osprey hunting. With the permission of the folks at the nesting site we were able to get quite close. It was awesome. The bird put on quite a show for us.

So the gifts of the day… the osprey, for sure. You don’t get to see them every day. The other gift… my colleagues and friends. I don’t get to see them every day, either. It was good to be with them again. I appreciate them a lot. Maybe I should tell them. Maybe I just did.

  • “But those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not faint.” Isaiah 40:31
