August/September 2018

The other day on my drive home from church, I saw a hawk circling a field.  Down the way just a bit is an eagle’s nest.  These are fascinating birds.  They’re big, they have keen eyesight, and they are regal.  I don’t have my hummingbird feeder out this year, although I did have a few buzzing around my yard, but they left for someone’s yard who put out a feeder.  We have an old hoot owl who lives in a tree a few houses down.  At night, he says, “who, who!”  I don’t like the sound, I’m just southern enough to be bothered by it.  At my old house, I had mourning doves, not thrilled with their call at 5:00 a.m.! My yard is full of the usual sparrows, robins, blue jays, and miscellaneous feathered creatures.  We even have geese, when the dogs don’t run them off! 

 

The past month has been a little stressful.  Course of Study homework and planning, funerals, my daughter sick, breaking my toe while running barefoot through church, the paperwork of selling our old house; the list, at times, has seemed like endless stress.  And yet, funnily enough, I haven’t been crazy. (At least not any more than normal!)  Because I really have given it all to the Lord.  Matthew 11:28 (NRSV) 28 “Come to me, all you that are weary and are carrying heavy burdens, and I will give you rest.

 

And that may sound easy for me to do, but it is always a struggle for me to give up and admit that I can’t fix it!  So God in His wisdom, sent me wonderful signs to remind me.  Yes, you guessed it!  Those birds I talked about earlier. Luke 12 (NRSV) 24 Consider the ravens: they neither sow nor reap, they have neither storehouse nor barn, and yet God feeds them. Of how much more value are you than the birds! 25 And can any of you by worrying add a single hour to your span of life?26 If then you are not able to do so small a thing as that, why do you worry about the rest? 27 Consider the lilies, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin; yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his glory was not clothed like one of these.

Because His Eye is on the Sparrow, and

I know He watches me.  Amen!

 

In His Name,

 

 

Pastor Denise
