I paused a moment to look out our front window this morning
on my way to grade even more geometry proofs.
There, in the little oasis of our green yard,
I saw this gift from God -
an Olive-backed Sunbird
delicately sipping from
a Bird of Paradise goblet...
Look at the birds of the air:
they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns,
and yet your heavenly Father feeds them.
Are you not of more value than they?
One more reminder of the One who cares for me;
who provides for my needs.
And which of you by being anxious
can add a single hour to his span of life?
Thank You, God, for this beautiful reminder of your perfect provision!
