Sparrows

I chose a simple little plain brown bird to talk about tonight. I have really been discouraged. I work in such an unhealthy atmosphere. The disrespect I feel there is as thick as a smoggy day in the city. So I started thinking about the Lord and all His goodness and the little sparrows that are mentioned in the bible. If He can care for one of them as much  as He cares for me than I need to change my attitude and get growing in my spiritual relationship with God.

Sparrows are just common little birds. But the bible speaks of them so their importance to God has me thinking. I saw two sparrows having a very intimate moment a few years ago. I was mailing a letter at the mail box outside of the office building where I use to work. Those two little birds were chatting up a storm and fluttering their wings wildly. I am nearly 100% positive that they were being very romantic and I thought they have no one but each other and God to rely on. It is such a shame people don't act more like sparrows instead of  trying to act like eagles and end up looking like turkeys! So here are a few internet images of these sweet little fellows and ladies. They are simple but their message for me as been powerful.
Please stop by Angela's place today and say hello. Just go http://wvtreasures.blogspot.com/. Congratulate her for being a new auntie too!

Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? And not one of them will fall to the ground apart from your Father. But even the hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not, therefore; you are of more value than many sparrows.

That verse holds such great power and promise to me, always has. Sparrows are busy birds who know how to tone it down to play and flutter about. There is certainly something very innocent about them. I admire them. Hugs.Tammy

What a beautiful post Anne! I knew the verse in the Bible but it never crossed my mind when I see them. It will now! Thanks for sharing that with us this week!

Sweet birds,
I love the act like eagles and look like turkeys. How true.
Sorry about your grandma, mine died 2 years ago this Thanksgiving, she is missed.

I like your post today - you added a little humor (about the turkeys) in the middle of a serious subject! Thanks for the nice words.

I hope a little bird song will raise your spirits... The birds have a hard life when the weather goes against them - but then - they can fly...
