One of my feathered friends has flown south. Even though I have been very busy in the ministry, playing with the grandchildren, working in the house, there is an emptiness. I look at the blogging site of "Birds of a Feather," hoping to read another exciting adventure in bird watching, and much to my disappointment there is no blog. But, I know as sure as the sun rises each day, she will return like the dawning of spring and then there will be joy again!
Talking about birds, I would like to share a thought provoking poem I read ( author unknown). It is an encouraging reminder to all of us who at times may become anxious over life's necessities. It underscores God's love and concern for people.
Said the sparrow to the robin:
"I should really like to know
Why these anxious human beings
Rush about and worry so."
Said the robin to the sparrow:
"Friend, I think that it must be that they have no Heavenly Father
Such as cares for you and me!"
Of course Jesus said it first so well at Matthew 6:25,26; and Luke 12:6,7. May we always remember that, whenever we become anxious - "observe intently the birds of heaven."
This is Raven-as the crow flies!
