sparrows and locks

“Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? Yet not one of them will fall to the ground outside your Father’s care. And even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. So don’t be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.”

Resting on the observation deck, (or lawn!) Giggles.

It is obvious we love our dog, Helen.

And her smile continues to show us, “I love you, too!”

Love helps us to feel valued.

And safe from harm.

But do we guard the love we’ve been given?

Do we protect it from harm?

Eagle-eye Helen found a surprise visitor to our backyard the other day as she watched over the grounds we dwell upon.

A delightful feathered friend,

who helped to remind us just how much


as He watches over each of thee in this very same way!


A visitor to North Star, the red-tailed falcon.

The Lord is your keeper;
The Lord is your shade on your right hand.
The sun will not smite you by day,
Nor the moon by night.
The Lord will [a]protect you from all evil;
He will keep your soul.
The Lord will [b]guard your going out and your coming in
From this time forth and forever.  Psalm 121: 5-8

God is always watching over us!

He is our guardian and His eyes never miss anything that is going on in our life.

God’s eyes are always glued to us!

He never grows weary from observing us.

(And nothing He sees is going to make Him stop loving us.)

He will only watch all the more, in eager anticipation that we might see the love He desires to share, and choose (ourselves) to protect this endless-love from harm!

Today, may we take comfort in this truth and rest in His watchful eye!

And remember to be grateful for those He sends to watch over us with Him!

hugs n’ blessings to all, as you place your trust in Him!
