Karen Nevis a fine watercolor artist sent me a copy of her Brown Pelicans at harbor. They used to be endangered but are now making a comeback. How defenseless is a pelican? What could it have done to preserve itself or change its decline. It took the mercy of a superior being to preserve it. I wonder why we have become so proud that unlike this pelican we believe we can make that change. Michael Jackson had 50 booked concerts. He was unable to change his circumstance. My faith has been ridiculed but my hope in the mercy of a superior being will net a positive result. I may not be as stupid as a pelican but I hope I can be that wise.
I haven't seen a real pelican in quite some time but Karen's representation is enough to appreciate God's majestic creation. How can one not look at a creature like this and garner hope from the power, mercy and creative intellect that fashioned it. Thank you God and thank you Karen for this brief but important pelican truth. Surely if God can arrange for a pelican comeback a Dorean comeback is surely in the making.
