Wanda and I also like to eat our breakfast on the porch and read the Bible together. As we shared Wednesday morning in our early devotions, my eyes fell on Luke's recording of Christ's teaching on the Kingdom, worry, and the lessons of the birds and lilies. Christ taught us to trust Him, put the Kingdom first, and not too worry about the daily needs. He will take care of us even more than He does the birds and lilies.
I looked out beyond our deck to the bird feeder
and watched all the birds coming and going for their breakfast. There were a couple of red birds, a male and female, and woodpecker, and wrens, and other unidentified birds. They chirped and sang with a joy of life that stirred new refreshings in me. They weren't worried about tomorrow and all its issues and needs. They were happy today.
Right in front of me was a little male wren taking food to his female partner who is nesting in a geranium plant now blooming in all its glory.
I looked further into the back yard to day lilies blooming and again saw the wonder and beauty of God.
Squirrels were racing back and forth over our fence and through the woods sending mating calls to each other.
All of the flowers of the back yard we have recently planted were glowing the goodness of God.
I too will trust in Him. He will take care of tomorrow.
