Look at the Birds

"That is why I tell you not to worry about everyday life-whether you have enough food and drink, or enough clothes to wear. Isn't life more than food and your body more than clothing? Look at the birds. They don't plant or harvest or store food in barns, for your Heavenly Father feeds them. And aren't you far more valuable to Him than they are? Can all your worries add a single moment to your life?" Matt.6:25-27
I really enjoy watching birds that fly free and how they build nests out of our trash and lint from our dryers. I used to have a neighbor that was a total bird watcher. She could name them off on sight. I know there is name for that but I can't think of it. Anyways, she would spend hours outside with her binochulers(did i spell that right?) just studying them. So when Jesus says here to "look at the birds" it reminds me of a few things. They fly free. They nurture thier young. They are always moving(migrating) so nothing stays the same for them.
They are beautiful examples of God's amazing talent in creating and attention to detail for even the smallest of creations.
Today while reading this scripture I was reminded of how awesome God's love is for His kids. How I can't even wrap my brain around His faithfulness to me and how He love's me so much that the silly things that are of importance to me become , therefore important to Him. His love for me and the way He chose to love me still amazes me(Jesus). His words are life to me and truly something I treasure. I am so very thankful this holiday season mostly just cause I have a Father in Heaven who loves me enough , more than enough to give me THE most amazing gift.
Sometimes I worry too much about things that don't really matter and I am thankful that He always knows what I need.

It is hard to fully grasp God's care for us in comparison to the rest of nature. The birds are a good lesson! We have some beautiful ones in our neighborhood and I love watching them, but not for hours. :)

this is so pretty. i love to hear birds chirping. the birds don't worry about their needs because they don't have a brain big enough to cognitively consider it. they can't be aware of something that they have no capacity to be aware of. just a thought.
