“Are not five sparrows sold for two farthings,
and not one of them is forgotten before God?”
As I got on the interstate,
I saw, to my surprise,
A pair of geese and their young brood
Right there, before my eyes.
They rested on a grassy wedge
Between the busy lanes;
And didn’t seem a bit upset
By all the noise and things.
Perhaps they just weren’t very bright;
But I choose to believe
That in the care of their Creator,
They could rest in peace.
Now we, as parents, sometimes find
It hard to parent in
A world that’s swirling round about
With chaos, danger, sin.
But our Creator offers us
That peace His creatures know
When, in those times of great distress,
It’s to His feet we go;
And trust that He whose eye is on
The tiniest of birds
Will also be there for the child
Who’s trusting in His Word.
“casting all your care upon Him,
for He cares for you.”
1 Peter 5:7 NKJV
