I had no idea what I was walking into

Peregrine-falcon

I decided on Monday to come up and visit a friend in Crawford Colorado.  I just needed some time to take a deep breath, so we did some fishing, hiking, and camping for the last two days. 

When I drove up to this ranch, I noticed a small building on the side that had a fence around it.   I got out of my truck, knocked on the front door, and the nicest man I've ever met greeted me to his place.  We sat down at the kitchen table, had a cup of coffee, and then he said, "Do you want to see something cool?" 

Well, what was I supposed to say?

"Of course…"

He took me to the back house, and opened the gate, and there perched on a little stump were two of the most beautiful creatures I've ever seen in my life.

"I'm a master falconer." He told me. "These are my kids."

I looked with eager anticipation at the these beautiful birds of pray.  I didn't know if they were going to jump off the stump and gouge my eyes out, or just sit there majestically wondering who I was and why I was there. 

My new friend explained how he trains the birds, flies the birds, and basically cares for them like one of his family. 

As I was listening, I was praying at the same time.  "God thanks for these little times in life when I walk into something I didn't expect.  You blow my mind!!"

New Friends.
New Experiences.
Great time to catch my breath.

What a great two days!!

Now, I'm back to the office this afternoon. 

I'm getting ready for a Men at the Cross Event in Harrisburg Pennsylvania.  So if you're in the area, come on out, and let's have a cup of coffee together!!  God bless.

Let me know what you think
