Blessed Birdie

I've just come home from church. It was a very beautiful service - unique, as always.
One thing that was different today, was that my husband, the pastor, asked me to bring the message! I had written an article for my website last week, and he wanted me to expand on it for church this morning.
I wouldn't normally announce this sort of thing, but something special happened that I cannot keep to myself!
After the service was over, a dear lady friend, who follows my Bird Blog, came up to me and said, "Did you know that there was a little bird fluttering at the window behind you, the whole time you were speaking? It would land on the window trim and let go - flutter down a ways and then try again!" (we meet in an historic building - the windows have wood frames) She said it was hard not to interrupt me to bring it to my attention. My husband said that it 'tweeted' all during my message. :)
Call it a vivid imagination, or a Bird Dream - but, I can't help thinking it was no accident that that little bird was there today at 11:30am.

Just an indication God is always with us, taking care of our every need. He shows us in the little ways sometimes.

You must be some great inspirational speaker to have the birds try to get in through the windows...:-)

Hi Diane, I didn't know that your hubby was a minister. How neat!!! And it sounds like you are going to be his assistant!!! Glad you were able to get up and talk ---and I'm sure the people and the BIRDS enjoyed it... Glad your birdie followed you to church!!!! ha

That is so interesting--I don't think it was an accident, either!

How appropriate. God certainly knows how to punctuate and illustrate our attempts at communicating His truths. I'm reminded of a church in Michigan, where I was holding a church sound seminar. A large, floor to ceiling panel of glass bordered each side of the platform, and looking out from the pews, one saw pastureland and a flock of grazing sheep. It was beautiful, and brought to mind all sorts of illustrations.
