Little Bird

As I watched the little hummingbird at my window, I moved slowly so as to not startle him.  One movement and he was gone.

I spoke out loud "Oh little bird, don't you know that I'm the one that feeds you?  Don't you know that I'm the one that loves you?"

Why must he be so stubborn?  Has he not seen everything that I do for him?  Does he not know it's me?  Why does he fly away?

As I speak these words, I think to myself, is that what God says to us?  Why must we insist on flying away?  Why don't we recognize that everything he does, he does for us?

Let our faith guide us and let us not be afraid.  Let us live each moment and rejoice in all he has given.  We are of him who speaks through us.

Let us Listen.
