A Gentle Reminder from Edward the Bird
Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? Yet not one of them will fall to the ground outside your Father’s care. So don’t be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows. Matthew 10:29,31
This is Edward, and no, he’s not a sparrow. He’s a cardinal, but there’s no appropriate scripture about cardinals, so I borrowed the one from Matthew.
Edward lives in my yard and eats birdseed on my kitchen windowsill, bringing joy when I’m cooking and cleaning. Edward’s mate (Bella) hardly ever shows up, but she and Edward often rendezvous in a nearby bush where he shares partially chewed mouthfuls. Oh, to be a bird.
Edward’s presence is a gentle reminder for me to keep things in perspective. You see, I’m a worrier. But like the verse says, if God cares for Edward and Bella, I know he’s taking care of me, too.
How has God reminded you lately?
