Look up!

As I was standing and looking out over the lake, I felt a little disappointed at the apparent lack of wildlife in the immediate area.  Then I heard a passing kayaker tell one of his companions to “look up”.  As I lifted my eyes, I was amazed to see a large flock of white pelicans quietly soaring right above my head.  Such a beautiful and graceful sight that I would have otherwise missed if I hadn’t overheard the suggestion to look up.

“… How often we miss God’s treasures
Just because we don’t raise our eyes.
By keeping our narrow focus
We blunder and miss the prize …”
