Positively Winter Birds

by Mauverneen

"Behold the birds of the air, for they neither sow, nor do they reap, nor gather into barns: and your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are not you of much more value than they?" 

      I hear people commenting this time of year on birds - "How do they survive in this cold?" It is a wonder, but God made them to survive. I marvel not only that they survive, but, no matter what the season, they find their way home, to their own nests, to their own territory. 
      I think at times we have all wished to be a bird for a day. To soar up into the sky, feel the wind in our face and beneath our wings. To fly where we please, to look down with a wider view to what we cannot see when we are standing still with our feet planted. To be able to sing.  

"Use what talents you possess: the woods would be very silent if no birds sang there except those that sang best." – Henry Van Dyke
