And the Birds Still Sing...
Ah, the sound of birds singing every morning is so sweet and joyful! The melodious chirps, arranged in patterns particular to each species, results in a wondrous orchestration. No matter the day or season, the birds sing. How resilient they are!
Recently, doves nested in our backyard. We marveled at the laborious process that ensued as the nest was built over the next two weeks. Once complete, Mama Dove sat diligently on the nest for hours, only leaving for short periods of time. It wasn’t long before she'd laid two eggs.
However, the next morning, Mama Dove was gone—and so were the eggs. All that remained were remnants of scattered shells in the nest and yard. An unknown predator had scored a meal.
Two days later, Mama Dove returned. She wasn't giving up. This time she'd selected a hiding place near our front patio. She’d coo and sing each time she flew to and from the perch. We hoped for another nest.
There is a lesson to be had from our feathered friends. They are resilient, and the birds still sing ... no matter the day or season.
May we strive to sing the unique melodies that lay within each of our hearts, while finding joy in the orchestration of each day of our lives.
“The birds of the sky nest by the waters; they sing among the branches.” – Psalm 104:12
“But ask the animals, and they will teach you, or the birds in the sky, and they will tell you; or speak to the earth, and it will teach you, or let the fish in the sea inform you. Which of these does not know that the hand of the Lord has done this?” – Job 12:7-9
“Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns; and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?” – Matthew 6:26-30
