Three Sparrows

At a time when

Gatherings are discouraged

Sparrows meet together

Feasting on food provided

By their Father in heaven


Look at the birds of the air, for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? Matthew 6:26

(Seeing these birds in the parking lot at my local grocery was a great reminder that God will provide during these unstable times and like the birds I should not worry about what I will eat or drink.)

  1. I love it! Those birds are so cute. And they do like to gather. 3 is a very small gathering to some I have seen. But I haven’t seen it yet this year. I did hear at least one bird (there may have been more) singing when I woke up the other morning, and it was encouraging. And yes, we do not need to worry about where our next meal is coming from. We are blessed even though the shelves are being emptied faster than they can be refilled. We are still much better off that the people in some of the 3rd world countries.

    1. Thank Diane. Yes the gathering was larger but some flew away as I came near. It was just one of those moments where it seemed the Lord was speaking to me to not worry because the scripture from Matthew 6 came into my mind right at that time. 😊 I love it when that happens.
