Provision

What a noise!  What a racket those birds were making!  I couldn’t figure out what was going on.  Then I located them.  Three young birds jumping up and down (yes they were) on the railing of the deck next door – yelling and screaming.  And then I saw her.  The mommy bird (I’m making an assumption) was helping herself to the bowl of dog food at the back door. She swooped down, grabbed a piece, fed a yelling baby bird the morsel, and then started all over again.  And all the while the babies continued to jump and scream.

At first I thought, “What a lazy mom for not finding worms!”  But then I remembered the scripture:  “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)

I went back to what I was doing before the birds interrupted me.  I quit my own jumping up and down and yelling and screaming and sat down to finish paying the bills. 

Thank you, Lord, for providing for all of us.
