This little one knew it had wings and wanted to test them…
They weren’t fully formed to carry yet.
The nest could not be seen but I’m sure it knew right where that safety lay.
Maybe celebrating the discoveries.
Calling the others to join.
It was on the sidewalk outside the hotel and seemed intent on the parking lot instead of the safety of the nest. I waited a bit to make sure I didn’t get in its way as I drove out.
As I studied and wondered if I could help, I thought of the Psalms. David is crying out against injustice, calling for help, celebrating the wonder of His Lord and resting in the confidence of His plan.
Have you been testing your wings?
Are you allowing fear to hold you back?
He tells us not to fear but to be courageous.
Do you dare to test your wings?
The LORD will keep you from all harm — he will watch over your life; the LORD will watch over your coming and going both now and forevermore. Psalm 121:7-8
Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? Yet not one of them will fall to the ground apart from the will of your Father. And even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. So don’t be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows. Matthew 10:29-31
This little creatures wonderful “hairs” were so beautiful that morning…
