His Eye is on the Sparrow...and You

Today's message was emailed by a friend.  Enjoy. And remember, His eyes are on you...always.  The YouTube video at the end of the story popped into my head as I looked at these stunning photographs. 

Birds are so fragile and vulnerable.  These amazing photos captured a drama with two of these little creatures that is every bit as poignant and heart-wrenching as any human story.  Kudos to the photographer.  The newspapers that carried these photos sold out in every country.


A female bluebird was hit by a car as she swooped low across the road, and the condition was soon fatal. 
Her male mate brought her food and attended her with love and compassion.  

He brought her food again, but was shocked to find her dead.  

He tried to move her - a rarely seen effort. 
Aware his mate was dead and would never come back to himAgain, he cried out with adoring love…And stood beside her with sadness and sorrow. 

Millions of people were touched after seeing these photos in America, Europe, Australia, and even India.  The photographer sold these pictures for a nominal fee to the most famous newspaper in France.  All copies of that edition sold out on the day these pictures were published.  

You have just witnessed love and sorrow felt by God's creatures. 

The Bible says that God knows when a sparrow falls. 

Imagine how much He cares for us! 

Live simply, love generously, care deeply, give fully.
