The other day my husband, and granddaughter Abigail, and I were sitting at the kitchen table having a wonderful time of devotion and prayer. We were just about finished when a robin flew up to the window and peeked in at us. I saw an object lesson, or spiritual truth, as I watched that pretty little bird.
Song of Solomon 2:11,12
For, lo, the winter is past, the rain is over and gone; The flowers appear on the earth; the time of the singing of birds is come...
In these early days of spring we are looking forward to the green grass, and the budding trees and flowers. We are wanting to get outside and enjoy the blue skies, and gentle breezes. We want to forget the chill of winter and move on with our lives. And I am always listening to the sound of singing birds!
In the mornings when I go to my front room to do devotions I often hear birds singing. This sound always lifts my heart, and of course reminds me of our awesome Creator. The littlest birds have faced the harshness of winter and are now singing their spring time songs,...and it is a blessing to me and a reminder to sing praise to my Creator for all He does for me, and how He brings me through the storms of life.
Their sweet music reminds me of the ways that He cares for them and provides for their needs. And it also makes me think of all of the ways that He provides for us.
Abigail and Grandpa and I had just been talking about God's goodness to us,...and then this little robin appeared. I couldn't help but think that it was a perfect ending to our devotion time,...and I viewed it as a "token for good".
I thank God for the special little gift of,...A Robin At My Window!
