ART & INSPIRATION FROM PAUL & KATHY BOECHER©
This majestic bird is known for the strange sound that comes from deep inside their throat. Since they travel in large flocks, during migration across the plains, the noise becomes a raucous cacophony at times. Their numbers, their size and their voices are often a defense mechanism for them. Predators like the fox, wolf, lynx and cougar would easily devour them and many are consumed to complete the circle of life.
I find it so cool to see how God in His great love for His creation, provides for and protects the birds of the air, the fish in the seas and the animals that walk the earth. We are also His creation and His love for us is immeasurable.
O Lord, how manifold are your works! In wisdom have you made them all; the earth is full of your creatures. Here is the sea, great and wide, which teems with creatures innumerable, living things both small and great.
There go the ships,and Leviathan, which you formed to play in it. These all look to you,to give them their food in due season. When you give it to them, they gather it up; when you open your hand, they are filled with good things. When you hide your face, they are dismayed; when you take away their breath, they die and return to their dust. When you send forth your Spirit, they are created, and you renew the face of the ground.
