My Father

My Father uses everything to teach me beautiful truth.

Even the bluebirds, without their knowledge or consent, are instruments of His instruction and He is speaking to me about chesed (goodness, kindness, lovingkindness).

From inside the temple of forest branches behind my home I study the ways they give themselves so steadfastly and tirelessly to preparing the fledgling lives they’ve been entrusted with to begin journeys of becoming what they were created to be and do.

Their example of humble love and guidance lifts my thoughts and heart heavenward and I rejoice knowing that in every moment I receive the perfection of my Father’s care.

Love’s strength stands in love’s sacrifice.
