My ten year old daughter showed me this piece of writing and I decided to share it as a first-ever guest blog! I love her heart… this flowed from her soul through her pen onto a piece of notebook paper. And now, we get to share it with all of you!
See how the birds fly high above in the sky? They are free, free from the world’s treacherous ways. With no worries at all, they soar happily high above.
To be one of them is a wonderful wish, to fly high in the sky, away from the sin of this world. What a beautiful thing that would be, up above the trees.
It’s as if our Heavenly Father is sending them down… down as a symbol of the love He has for us.
The birds may not know how they will get their next meal, but God provides that for them. So let’s take in the fact that God loves us, because that’s what counts. If He loves us even more than the birds, yet still feeds them, will He not care for us as well? He provides for the birds, so He will provide for us.
I think of birds as a symbol showing and reminding us that God is watching over us, guiding us with every step we take. Don’t fear what you know needs to happen next, because God loves you and He is watching over you.

“Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your Heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?” – Matthew 6:26
