Bird Feeder

Dearly Beloved,

Grace and Peace to you.                        

Prayer is a bird feeder.
You put in it what you have at hand
and hang it out where it's easily seen
and you wait.
You look at it, all the little things in it,
and you wait.

You don't yell at the birds
or tell them what to do with the seeds.
You wait.
And you marvel at their little wings,
their heads bobbing up, always looking,
their feet so small and sure,
how they hang on,
their tiny visitations,
their impossible flight,
full of life,
from such great distances,
coming and going.

Deep Blessings,
Pastor Steve
