Faith and Feathers


This week-end I came across a feather that one of the hawks in our neighborhood lost in a tussle with a mocking bird. It was still so well preserved that i brought it home and washed it and then mailed it off with this poem to our youngest grandson. I hope that it may be a blessing to some other child like thinking friends out there. I hope everyone has a great week!

Faith is Like a Feather

Faith is like a feather

That can move a million pounds

It can shake a mighty mountain

Without making any sounds

It sings when we are lonely

And sits close when we are sad

Then carries us to Jesus

To forgive us when we’re bad

It will teach us to keep praying

Even when we’re growing weak

And will fly with us to heaven

Where with Jesus we will meet

  1. Amen. Faith can help you to rise above every trouble and mountain. Have faith and you will soar the skyline. Halleluyah

      Yes and this one is heading for my 6 year old grand son along with a hawk feather. I pray that it encourages him to dare to have big faith.

      1. Amen. We don’t need big one, we need a whole mustard seed size faith. 😃🤝

  2. Move over Shel Silverstein! Nice poem.

      Thanks Dave. I guess part of me is still back in second grade because I can’t shake still thinking like a kid. I hope my grandson likes it!
