Spring is well and truly in the air over here! 😀 It’s exciting to see all the flowers coming out and the blossoms appearing! Our garden is full of soooo much colour and splendour!! God is such an amazing designer!! 😀
Here’s a couple of pictures one of my siblings took recently!
Aren’t they amazing colours!? 😀 And those are just two of the many amazing blooms!
Earlier this week, my brothers found a little mud nest above our kitchen window–complete with baby birds! And though the birds are swallows (not sparrows), it got me thinking about an excerpt from my novel! So I thought I’d share it with you. 😀
Jed blew out a puff of air. “A long time ago God taught me something, Jayne. He made me realise that He was bigger than my problems and far stronger than all my weaknesses.” He brushed a hand across his face. “Are not five sparrows sold for two farthings, and not one of them is forgotten before God? But even the very hairs of your head are all numbered.” He looked her full in the face with tears glistening in his eyes. “Fear not therefore: ye are of more value than many sparrows.”Chapter 10, Jayne’s Endeavour
Which then got me to thinking about a hymn along the same lines . . . “His Eye Is on the Sparrow.” 😛
“Let not your heart be troubled,” His tender word I hear,Civilla D. Martin
And resting on His goodness, I lose my doubts and fears;
Though by the path He leadeth, but one step I may see;
His eye is on the sparrow, and I know He watches me.”
It’s so comforting to know that God watches over us every moment of every day! What’s a hymn or song that you find encouraging? 😀
