birds of the air


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?

Matthew 6:26

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?

Matthew 6:27


Not I.

Thank You, God, for this beautiful reminder of your perfect provision!
