Life is Precious

Life is precious
We had a pair of Cardinals that frequented our bird feeders. He would always crush some sunflower seeds and fly to her and feed her first. It was interesting to watch the love of a mate. One day, only the male came and he spent the next several days calling for his mate. We could tell by the sound that he was stricken with worry.

I recently received an e-mail that reminded me that all things big or small cling to the principles of love and life.
In the EYE of a SPARROW

A female mate was hit by a car as she swooped low across the road, and the condition was soon fatal.

Her male mate brought her food and attended her with love and compassion.

He brought her food again, but was shocked to find her dead.

He brought her food again, but was shocked to find her dead.

Aware that his mate was dead and would never come back to him again, he cried with adoring love...

...and stood beside her with sadness and sorrow.

Millions of people were touched after seeing these photos in America , Europe, Australia , and even India .
The photographer sold these pictures for a nominal fee to the most famous newspaper in France . All copies of that edition were sold out on the day these pictures were published.

And many people think animals and birds don't have brains or feelings. You have just witnessed love and sorrow felt by God's creatures. The Bible says that God knows when a sparrow falls.

Live simply, love generously, care deeply, and speak kindly.
