Another Poem from Karen


This is such a lovely analogy. It makes me think of what Jesus said about how God cares for the sparrows...and so much more for us.

Wings

Wings of a bird so young
Closed and unable to fly
The song of a baby bird sung
Peeps, attempts and shy

Become, I have, like that young bird
Fearful of leaving it's nest
An adult's life that's become absurd
Unable to pass life's test

Praying I'll grow like the chick will
And my wings will open wide
Sitting upon my window sill
Anticipating my very first glide

Trusting God as the hatchling does
Upon it's first leap from the tree
I will open wide my wings because
I'm secure He'll take care of me
