Look at the birds of the air . . . . Are you not of more value than they?
That doesn't mean we get what we need by doing nothing. Birds must scratch and search for food. The point is, they don't worry about it.
Birds are absolutely fascinating to watch. Twig by twig birds will construct a bowl-shaped home in a bush and then lay eggs and keep them warm until they are hatched. Last summer one little brown wren constantly tried to build a nest in my picnic table umbrella. During the week it was closed up and then on the weekend I’d open it up and out would fall all the twigs. Toward the middle of summer she must have found another place to nest as I didn’t find any more twigs.
Why we humans insist on worrying is beyond me. But we do. Worry does not change the tide nor can it change my circumstances.
Today is Fantastic Friday and I’m going to do my very best to let go of all the concerns of this work week and be like those little birdies and sing. It’s FRIDAY!!!
I sing because I'm happy,
I sing because I'm free,
For His eye is on the sparrow,
And I know He watches me
By lyricist Civilla D. Martin and composer Charles H. Gabriel - 1905
Have a FANTASTIC Friday everyone!
