Look at me

I almost missed the little guy.  He eyed me warily as I killed time carelessly glancing in his direction while I waited patiently for the chance to photograph the beautiful red cardinals that frequent our feeder.  It seemed as though he was posing, wishing he was worthy of waiting for.  Oh, but he is just a lizard; nothing pretty or colorful or spectacular there.

But, like all of God’s creatures and creation often does, he made me think.

Why are we always drawn to the obvious beauty, the thing that seems to captivate our attention and makes us utter exclamatory phrases?

The lizard in all his…well, his uniqueness, is helping keep the insect population down in my yard.  That’s a good trait if you ask me!  Some think them a nuisance, but these are just the small wild lizards that dart around all through the yard, under the porch, rattling the bushes and hasten to hide if they sense our cat skulking up to terrify them.  I find them entertaining and amusing.

In my quest to enjoy the small things and be grateful for them, I want to salute Mr. Lizard here and thank him for reminding me to notice ALL of God’s creation, not just the animals and people that are blessed with outward beauty or obvious intelligence.
