Morning Song

I love song birds. Especially in the morning. I enjoy sitting in the living room in my favorite chair, with the windows wide open, listening to their sweet music while I read or write. How thoughtful of God to create something that enstills such a sense of peace and rest to my soul. So simple.

So often we get so focused on charging into the day, spear in hand, ready to attack, that we forget to just sit still at the feet of Jesus and listen to the birdsong. At moments like this --where I am right now with Jesus -- He and I don't need to say a word. We can just sit here together and enjoy the sweet singing of the cardinals and the finches. Gently breathing in, breathing out. Enjoy.

Thank you, LORD.
