BY FAITH ALONE

April 22, 2017

Despite their fragility,

in body and on branch,

the birds sang on

in delicate harmony.

Thunder and lightening,

driving wind and rain

did not change their spirit!

We have much to learn from them!

BUT WE ARE SAVED – SOAR!

April 17, 2017

The sad little bird,

caged for so long,

hopelessly yearned to fly.

One day,

the cage door was open!

But still he stayed inside,

not knowing what it was

to be free!

What I Learned From A Bird Outside My Window

February 7, 2017

I Wonder . . .

Does the bird

on the branch of the tree in my yard

ponder

“Do I sing out of tune?”

THE LISTENING HEART

Oh you clanging bells!

I hear you not!

For the chirping of a single sparrow

has made off with my heart!

Matthew 6:26

26 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?

The bird does not

sing because he’s happy.

He is happy

because he sings!

You choose.

DO YOU SUPPOSE

Does the bird

on the branch of the tree in my yard

ponder

“Do I sing out of tune?”
