I Know He Loves Me Too

Little Missionary Julie, I thought you would like this story!

I was hoping today as I drove down the highway to work that I would have a little bit of a photo shoot but alas, the day was not only cloudy, but the air was filled with a fog like mist. Well not to despair though! I thought I would put these pictures on my blog.... Two weeks ago this little fellow was caught standing on a pine tree branch, not yet knowing how to fly and I felt so sorry and afraid for the little guy! I could see a father cardinal flying about in distress in the blue sky above. Well I looked that little baby bird right in the eye and told him I would be praying for him! He let me take about a dozen pictures and never seemed to be afraid. After I had taken as many pictures that I dared, I said good bye to him and as I walked up the lane to pick my elderly friend a bouquet of tulips, I prayed for the safety of this little creature of God's making. Returning about ten minutes later, I was so relieved to see that his daddy had successfully rescued his little son and, as only fathers can do had carried him safely home to his mother and told him he would leave the rest of the flying lessons for another day! As for me, I thanked my Father above for looking after that baby. He loves me too! He loves me too! I know He loves me too! If God so loves the little birds, I KNOW He loves me too!.......June 2 2006

Thatis like the hymn" His eye is on the sparrow, and I know He watches me." I will never forget the Sunday I learned that hymn. Our friend taught it to us, and told us it was one of his favorites. He had been through so much in his life, and at that point he was missing his family who were far away helping his son geting ready for his wedding. I can still hear his beautiful voice ringing out clear as he sang it to us...what a memory.
