A colourful character dropped by for lunch today
on what was otherwise a rather grey day.
Before coming to Tiree we acquired a couple of bird feeders.
A thoughtful Christmas present added to the collection.
With the gift came a large sack of bird food.
What pleasure this has brought.
Over the winter it seemed hundreds of starlings
came for breakfast, lunch and tea.
Few others got a look-in!
Well! Except for the Big Boys!
Is it a pigeon or a rock dove?
With the arrival of Spring and the warmer weather
some of our smaller birds have reappeared.
Perhaps just a sparrow to us
but Jesus reminds us:
“What is the price of two sparrows—one copper coin?
But not a single sparrow can fall to the ground
without your Father knowing it.
So don’t be afraid;
you are more valuable to God
than a whole flock of sparrows.”
