The Magic of God in Nature

I had just come into the local supermarket to do my weekly shop. As I came through a door thinking about something else that had just happened, something caught my eye. I stopped and looked, and here was a real live tiny little robin sitting on top of a till. It made me stop in my tracks and forget all about my thoughts.

I felt so much childlike joy and amazement watching this beautiful little bird, and I wanted to share it with the world.

I stood and watched as this delicate and joyful little bird made me smile. It felt like it was there just for me. It stood still for a while, then hopped to another till, and stood still again before it hopped to another and flew off. I watched it fly over some aisles, then up to the roof. It was amazing to watch this little bird fly across the store. 

I felt that this beautiful little bird reflected the magic of God and stillness, which reminded me of the stillness that is in me and brought me back to the presence in my body and away from my thoughts.

It also made me appreciate the magic of God in life, and how much I love simplicity and the little details.

Here was this beautiful little bird in the most unexpected of places, just doing its own thing, simply being itself, in its beautiful, amazing and delicate presence, and not bothered by what was going on around it. Some people noticed, many people weren’t aware, but this little bird was not bothered, it was just there.

I saw a security man notice it and said to him with such childlike joy “It’s a robin!” The amazing thing was, when he told me that he’d seen it before, I could feel myself getting pulled into the thought of “Will it get out?” and I actually asked him this question.

But as soon as I said those words I could feel I had gone into my head, my body felt tight and tense, so I stopped and came back to me, simply appreciating the magic of God, the gift from heaven and the joy that I felt.

The magic of God is everywhere, even in the most unexpected of places, just there for us to see or feel.

Funnily enough, I never saw the little robin again… 

That was until about a month ago when I was walking through the supermarket and what should fly past my feet, with its wings spread out wide, but my little friend the robin.

Then, upon my return the following week, I felt to go down an aisle, and there on the end was a beautiful collection of china mugs, with the most delicate deer painted on them. As I had a look to feel whether I really wanted one or not, guess what caught my eye…. yep, you guessed it…. the robin. But this time it was not flying around or sitting on a till, here it was on a mug, the only mug at the very end of the shelf that had a beautiful robin painted on it – and yes, I bought it because I knew it was there just for me.

So every day now, when I open the cupboard door, I smile when I see this beautiful robin looking at me. It reminds me of my delicateness and of the magic of God and the playfulness in nature, and in me.

  1. “It also made me appreciate the magic of God in life, and how much I love simplicity and the little details.” I love these little moments in nature as they confirm not only the stillness and rhythm of life but that which embraces the very essence of who we are and what a joy that is.

  2. ‘…just doing its own thing, simply being itself, in its beautiful, amazing and delicate presence, and not bothered by what was going on around it.’This is a wonderful reflection of the magic of God in us and an inspiration to be in this world as who we are without compromise.

  3. “Here was this beautiful little bird in the most unexpected of places, just doing its own thing, simply being itself, in its beautiful, amazing and delicate presence, and not bothered by what was going on around it.” I love this passage, because it reminds me of me and where l am and can be in my life right now. It teaches me to observe and not absorb and to dissolve all pictures l may have about life and others and how l think they should be or behave. . No expectations, no conditions, no control, no manipulation, just allowing all to be as is around it.This little robin just is.

  4. “It also made me appreciate the magic of God in life, and how much I love simplicity and the little details.” Often in simplicity is the most intricate, detail of profound love.

  5. “Then, upon my return the following week, I felt to go down an aisle, and there on the end was a beautiful collection of china mugs, with the most delicate deer painted on them.

This is truly the magic of God in nature. Thank you. I would love this to be a children’s book.

  6. Nature is such a great reflection that there is something much larger that we belong to and that this reflection is freely available to us shows us how loved we are by God and the universe.

    1. Sure Elizabeth, it is the reflection of the love of God we then can reconnect to, the same love we are made of and are from. That’s why it feels so amazing.

  7. Reading this blog today made me smile and feel the joy of you being with the robin. When I go into my mind I do not consider that robins can tell me something or that they could present a message to me, but when I can observe and be one with the robin, I am with the all the robin is the representation of. Time disappears and a magical space is opening up, a space where the magic of God can play out.

  8. I love feeling the natural playfulness and joy from within when connecting with the magic of God in nature even in the most surprising of places.

  9. I adore robins, and now realise it is their delicateness and playfulness that I have loved. I hadn’t considered that it could be a reflection of something in me though, I always thought it was a reminder of what I should be. Another layer taken off…many thanks!
