Lessons from the Birds


I have always been fascinated watching birds. Whether it was finding baby robins in our raspberry patch or seeing the red tailed hawk hunting over the field behind the barn, they can teach us wordless lessons about life and God. In fact Jesus told us to pay attention to the because God delights in revealing Himself even in them.

Look at the birds of the air, for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? Matthew 6:26 NKJV

It has been interesting since our move to Florida to discover many species that are new to me. Though there are so many different kinds they all share one thing in common with their Northeastern cousins. None of them lies awake at night worrying about tomorrow! Here are just a few shots I took of some of our new feathered friends. – Okay so the last one isn’t exactly a native Florida species but I had to include that chicken sleeping on the lamb! Have a great week everyone!
