A little something to put things in perspective…
One ranger found a bird literally petrified in ashes, perched
sta tuesquely on the ground at the base of a tree. Somewhat
sickened by the eerie sight, he knocked over the bird with a stick.
When he gently struck it, three tiny chicks scurried from under
their dead mother’s wings. The loving mother, keenly aware of
impending disaster, had carried her offspring to the base of the
tree and had gathered them under her wings, instinctively knowing
that the toxic smoke would rise.
She could have flown to safety but had refused to abandon her
babies. Then the blaze had arrived and the heat had scorched her
small body, the mother had remained steadfast because she had
been willing to die, so those under the cover of her wings would live.
‘He will cover you with His feathers,
And under His wings you will find refuge.’
Being loved this much should make a difference i n your life.
Remember the One who loves you, and then be different because of it.
Please pass this on to people you want to be blessed.
Time waits for no one. Treasure every moment you have. You will
treasure it even more when you can share it with someone special.
To realize the value of a friend… lose one.
