I can hear happy chirping sounds from the Cardinals on my front porch as they dine on…wait for it…cat food. Ha Ha! Ironic, huh? When the cats away the…uh, birds will play. he he Maybe they’re even laughing in their bird language as they feast on the meal of their nemesis. That would be funny! Crazy and silly…but still funny. If only they knew a hungry kitty hunts more and sleeps less. Be careful my lovely feathered friends.
Yes, the sun is beaming, the birds are singing, flowers are blooming and I feel God’s wondrous presence in it all. Looking at the birds I am reminded how God cares about even these tiny creatures. This Bible passage, which you may be familiar with, comes to mind:
“Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink;
or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more important than food,
and the body more important than clothes? Look at the birds of
the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly
Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Who
of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life? ” Matthew 6:25-27
I can read scriptures like these a hundred times and still need to be reminded of it. I am valuable to God. He will take care of me. And he doesn’t want me to worry. Now that’s stick-to-your-ribs comfort food. Mmmmmm…I needed that today. Hope you enjoyed it too.
Have a blessed day.
