Consider the sparrow they don’t plant or sow but they’re fed by the Master who watches them grow ~from Consider the Lilies (Joe Hemphill)
Are The Birds Really Free? By: Claire Crawford 2/15/2012
Bound by instinctual winter trips south; Remembering the ways from past generations to the same ancestral nesting grounds Following the old survival flight route; Recognizing exquisite landmarks and formations to join with the multitude of sounds as they all gather at the watering hole.
The roaring of wings as at once they fly again when the predators arrive and stare. We can all ponder And consider the sparrow and his goal; Compelled to find the daily seed and grain without a waking worry or care.
And too you can wonder On the waxwing and his craving; Shackled to the serviceberry and strawberry swallowing them whole ignorant of the ferment of alcohol. And death is sealed and very satisfied. So, when you watch that bird in the tree singing his spring song with glee seemingly with new freedom found Rest knowing that he too is bound just as you and I on common ground.
“If I leave here tomorrow would you still remember me? For I must be traveling on, now 'cause there's too many places I've got to see But, if I stayed here with you, girl things just couldn't be the same
'Cause I'm as free as a bird now And this bird you cannot change”… Lynard Skynard Freebird song lyrics
Matthew 10:29-31 "Not even a sparrow, worth only half a penny, can fall to the ground without your Father knowing it. And the very hairs on your head are all numbered. So don’t be afraid; you are more valuable to Him than a whole flock of sparrows."
*Because they eat so much fruit, Cedar Waxwings occasionally become intoxicated or even die when they run across overripe berries that have started to ferment and produce alcohol. *Cedar Waxwings feed mainly on fruits year-round. In summer, they feed on fruits such as serviceberry, strawberry, mulberry, dogwood, and raspberries. *above facts obtained from the website allaboutbirds.com by The Cornell Lab of Ornithology
