Those of you who have been following my blog for a while know that I am a bird lover. One of my favorite times of the day is early morning when the birds are having a feeding frenzy in my yard. I enjoy sitting in the sunroom having my quiet time with the Lord and occasionally glancing out to see the activity. Of course, with all of that activity there is bound to be a window collision once in a while, and that is exactly what happened this morning. The noise made was loud and all too familiar. It was so loud that I had to investigate, and this is what I found.
Poor little bird. He looked so scared. I did not open the door as to not alert the cats. That was the last thing this little fellow needed.
Fortunately, I checked up on him later to find him perched a little higher in the star magnolia right outside of my back door.
It always amazes me that after a little while these creatures are able to continue on their merry way. I don't know why I am amazed each time...doesn't Jesus tell us about the worth of our feathered friends?
"Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? Yet not one of them will fall to the ground apart from the will of your Father." Matthew 10:29
What Jesus says next just fills my heart with joy.
"So don't be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows." Matthew 10:31
Isn't it nice to be assured of our worth once in a while? Praise God, just like that song of old says...His eye is on the sparrow, and I know He watches me!
