This is a delightful devotion. I really liked how you shared a personal experience and then related that to the Word of God.

I noticed some tiny errors like some missing commas and that you put a space in between the em dash but it should look like this--really a little thing and chipmunk is one word.

I could almost feel the sun on my face and my hands trembled at the picture of the geese you painted for me. I've started walking lately. I've never been much of an outside person but I'm being blessed over and over in my daily walks from the beautiful red, pink and purple hues in the leaves of the trees this year. The drought has been hard and harvests are meager but in exchange God painted the world these amazing colors different from any year I can remember. You did a nice job on this piece.
I liked the following paragraph...very descriptive,

"Rounding a bend on my walk path I’ve heard myself laugh out loud at the ducks swimming in the lake in a bobbing-for-apples position - dunking so far down in the water that only their tail feathers are visible."

God Bless
Oh, my, my, my. The wealth of God’s ways filled what loss of work emptied. Would you have appreciated God’s natural abundance, as completely, otherwise? Maybe, still, with your heartfelt rendition, I know you have led me to more fully do so.
This dedication to God's earthly beauty is wonderfully descriptive and full of "aha" moments. I'm an avid walker and never tire of His creation--it's where I feel closest to God.
Great job with this piece.
Descriptive, reverent, and just an oveall beautiful devotional. Thank you.

God Bless~

Good artle and keep on writing.
