    ~ God Sees The Sparrow ~

    Her heart was kind and tender.
    So, when she saw the sparrow fall,
    She rushed to gently pick it up.
    She had made a judgement call.

    She couldn't just let it lay there.
    For, she knew that it would die.
    She had to find someone to help it.
    Oh, why did she have to cry?

    She wrapped it softly in a towel
    And began to make some calls.
    She remembered what her mother said,
    "God sees every sparrow when he falls."

    She called the Wildlife Preservation.
    They took the little sparrow in.
    They promised he would be just fine.
    She gave a sigh of relief and grinned.

    She thought of all the many times
    Her mother had often told her,
    The very words she took to heart,
    The words that would somehow mold her.

    She said that God sees every sparrow
    And He watched out for the tiny bird.
    So, who are you and I to doubt
    God said, 'You called and I heard'?

    It was then that she realized
    The way God took care of them
    Was by planting seeds of kindness.
    For, we do it in the name of Him.

    Deena, that was lovely. I am a lover of wild birds, I always think of the Lord when I see the tiny sparrow.

    Shalom, Shirl
