Thank you to Sally's granddaughter for keeping Sally's Blue Monday fun while she is recovering from surgery.
I am so happy you are feeling better my dear friend.
Congratulations on 53 years of marriage.
Sally, I know you are under Gods wings.
You may have seen this before but I thought it was worth sharing today.
After a forest fire in Yellowstone National Park, forest rangers began their trek up a mountain to assess the inferno's damage. One ranger found a bird literally petrified in ashes, squatted statuesquely on the ground at the base of a tree. Somewhat sickened by the eerie sight, he gently rolled the bird over with a stick. When he moved it, three tiny chicks scurried from under their dead
mother's wings. The loving mother, keenly aware of impending disaster, had carried her offspring to the base of the tree and had gathered them under her wings, instinctively knowing that the toxic smoke would rise. She could have flown to safety but had refused to abandon her chicks.
When the blaze arrived, and the heat was scorching her small body to a cinder, the mother had remained steadfast.... because she had been willing to die, so those under the cover of her wings would live.
'He will cover you with His feathers, and under His wings you will find refuge'.
(Psalm 91: vs.. 4)
This art is so beautiful.
