The Birds and the Lilies

When I hear the birds of the air, I hear them singing:

“We are happy,
We are fed,
By the Father’s hand, 
We get our bread.”

When I see the lilies of the field, I see them expressing:

“We are beautiful,
We are dressed,
By the Father’s hand,
We are blessed.”

When I consider these of lesser esteem, I consider my Father’s comforting:

“You are valuable,
So much more than they,
Remember the birds and the lilies,
And don’t worry about this day.”

Inspired by Matthew 6:25-34

Thank you, Father, for the birds and the lilies that remind me that all my days are held in the palm Your hand. Amen.

Truth in love,
