B.C. Black Bear

It's Majestic Marvel Monday! Since Mondays can often be one of the tougher days of the week and for many, it means back to the daily grind, what better way to put a smile on your face than to marvel at His majestic wonders! I absolutely love photography! It is both a creative outlet and passion that brings me joy. So, each Monday, I will post at least one photo of God’s majestic marvels I’ve captured. See and be in awe of His creations and beauty! 

Our daughter spotted this little guy in B.C. recently. My husband quickly whipped the car around so we could watch in awe. About twenty feet from our SUV, this hungry baby black bear was digging for roots. With his focus on feeding, I’m not sure he even knew he had visitors!

I was sinking down into that dark pit of depression this past weekend, but God had plans to bring me hope. One of the tools I’ve learned over the years to help combat falling deeper into this muck and mire is to change my environment. So, on Saturday, I mustered up that last bit of motivation I had to get out the door, and we headed for the beach.

Alaskan beaches aren’t like the typical beach. When we got there, the arctic wind was blowing, making it brutally cold and my mood dropped even further. We had driven an hour and a half for this and I was crushed, yet God blessed us!

What I thought was going to be a very quick, frigid trip, turned into a fun-filled afternoon that I had not expected. The wind died down a short while later and the weather became tolerable. We were headed across the street to check out the harbor, when our daughter spotted something in the water. Sure enough, we saw several sea otters swimming and splashing amongst the moored boats.

This fella was lazily lounging on the boat dock and did not seem to mind the company. Another was swimming on her back holding her baby. A few others were hamming it up, diving down, then bobbing to the surface and munching on mollusks. It was definitely the highlight of our trip and brought me a little piece of joy and some smiles I so desperately needed. His hope was displayed in His playful creation that was so beautiful to watch. God never ceases to amaze me just when I need it most. Below are a couple of those furry fellas that put on a show for us.

There really is hope for you in days to come. So your hope will not be cut off. -Proverbs 23:18

Until we landed in Alaska, I had never seen so many eagles in my entire life. In fact, I’m not sure I had even seen one. But, in just a year and a half, my family and I have spotted more than a hundred bald eagles. About thirty of these were this weekend alone.

On Friday, sitting in the parking lot of Petco, my daughter peered into the sky and counted eleven bald eagles circling above. The day prior, we saw several more, including a golden eagle sitting high up in a tree looking intently for his prey. And while I patiently waited for that golden eagle to take flight, I was able to quickly capture this handsome guy soaring proudly overhead with his Wings Spread.
