Living in the southwestern part of the country carries with it the fact that you also live with wildlife of the area. There are wild pigs or javelina who are seen early in the morning or late at night. Coyotes propagate the area and are often heard late at night when they have secured food for their young by howling as a group. Every once in a while a road runner can be seen running through the fields or deserts.
There are other animals, but one that came into our community about a month ago was the bobcat. She evidently loved the environment and produced a young child as can be seen in the picture below.
Sometimes we get so focused on the roads and building that we have built over the years that we miss the real beauty of life. Our hurriedness stops us from seeing God’s beauty and His creation. I am not a cat lover as anyone around me would attest. I am very allergic to cats and will find breathing very difficult if I get close to a cat. But I do see the beauty in these bobcats that have been in our neighborhood, especially when I take time to see them as they cross my path.
On this journey, God will bring His creation into view for us to look at and appreciate. An unhurried life will stop and truly take in the beauty along the way.
