~ Legends say that hummingbirds float, free of time, carrying our hopes for love, joy and celebration ~ open our eyes to the wonder of the world ~ inspire us to open our hearts to loved ones and friends ~ embrace all that life has to offer and to celebrate the joy of every day ~ delicate grace reminds us that life is rich, beauty is everywhere, every personal connection has meaning, and that laughter is life’s sweetest connection
“God’s tiny miracle”
~ to the Mayans, the feathers were magical and mystical ~ the Mayan gods decided to make the hummingbird in charge of carrying men’s thoughts to and fro, so if you see a hummingbird, someone is probably sending good thoughts your way – you can read the story here: The Mayan Legend of the Hummingbird
“Mother Nature is always speaking She speaks in a language understood within the peaceful mind of the sincere observer.”

Job 12: 7-12 (NKJV) 7 “But now ask the beasts, and they will teach you; And the birds of the air, and they will tell you; 8 Or speak to the earth, and it will teach you; And the fish of the sea will explain to you. 9 Who among all these does not know That the hand of the Lord has done this, 10 In whose hand is the [c]life of every living thing, And the breath of [d]all mankind? 11 Does not the ear test words And the [e]mouth taste its food? 12 Wisdom is with aged men, And with [f]length of days, understanding.
~ the Inca believed the hummingbird was a messenger from heaven, and the key element in the next stage of development of human consciousness
