Sweetest songs that seem to rise
From their tiny throats far-reaching,
Even to the distant skies.
Then at night they rest securely,
Nestled close within their nest,
And the Father safely watches
Every little feathered breast.
Likewise we when night approaches,
Lay our weary heads to rest,
For we know that God will watch us
as He does the bird's wee nest.
I found this sweet poem in a book titled Beneath His Wings ~ Abiding in God's Comfort and Love. Filled with wonderful paintings of birds by Carolyn Shores Wright, along with snippets of scripture, poetry and quotes. It makes a wonderful gift for those who need some encouragement. I've given numerous of these to others, and my mother has as well.
The first bird image in this post comes from my collection of Victorian paper. I think the bird looks very confident and regal. Here are a couple more bird images which I've shared at other times here on my blog.
I visited my friend Sue yesterday along with my daughter and her boys. Here are a few pictures from our visit. I just love this first one of my grandsons running through a meadow, no particular place to go, just carefree. The little one following his big brother confidently.
Sue has the most beautiful flowers, here are her Bleeding Hearts and Clementis. I love to get right on top of the flower with my camera and see the details. The petals are so soft, and appear as velvet. It amazes me, the details in each different flower that God created for our pleasure.
