This is a picture I took of Mamma Wren who is raising her precious brood in a birdhouse in Curley (our Twisty Baby Honey Locust tree).
It's spring and my yard is FULL of life! God fills our yard with all kinds of babies in the spring and it's wonderful! The yard is alive with song and it's absolutely lovely! As I enjoy their beautiful music and praise God for all the different songs and His sharing them with me, it occurs to me that in general, we think of singing birds as a very happy thing.

If you have been reading my blog for any time, you know that over the years, people have brought me all kings of needy animal babies to rescue and raise, then I release them into the wild. So, I'm going to share something about those "happy singing birds" that I learned the hard way.

I was brought a very young baby robin and was caring for it. A few days after we got it, I started getting bitten by something and I felt like something was crawling on me. I couldn't see anything, but it wasn't long till it spread all over me. It was supremely miserable I can tell you and I certainly didn't feel like singing praises! It turned out to be some kind of tiny chiggers I'd gotten from the baby bird. Nope...didn't bother my husband at all, just me! LOL! But then he wasn't caring for for the bird. You see, wild birds often, if not always, spend their entire lives being host to a variety of parasites.

So, these joyful songs we hear birds singing in praise to their Creator and God, are being sung by those living a lifetime of having parasites crawling all over them, biting them and sapping their strength, without any hope of relief. Yet still they fill the air with their happy melodies and bless a world full of people they will never know.

For me, it's a good reminder that we are to praise Him in the bad times as well as when all is going our way. It reminds me that praise comes cheaply when I'm happy and all is good, it's a natural reaction and takes no effort at all. Praise is more valuable when we offer it despite our pain, our sickness and limitations, our loss and need because we must make the effort to do so. Let's take a lesson from those beautiful feathered friends God made for us and not let our physical situation in life adversely affect our praising and worshiping Him, because He is ALWAYS worthy. Our witness to those who haven't yet given their lives to Him through Jesus Christ is a lot more powerful when we are living lives of praise and choosing to have a good disposition and treat others kindly despite our circumstances.

(Note - recent laws require a special license to rescue animals or you can get hurt really badly in court, at least in Alabama.)
