Why "A Little Bird"?
So you ask, why "A Little Bird"? Well, I was trying to think of a name, but wouldn't you know it, everything that came to mind just wasn't singing to me. all my ideas sounded flat, dull and boring, then it hit me! Like a soft feather floating softly down from above. :) You see, I started a little garden recently and added a humming bird feeder and a dish with bird seeds. Sometimes when I sit out and enjoy a nice warm day by my garden I often see many little birds now. Well, after a while, these birds got me thinking. They reminded me of the verse in the bible about how God cares for the flowers in the field and the birds and how we should not worry because He loves and cares for us so much more (Matthew 5:43-48). The more I thought about these little birds and the qualities they have, the more I liked the name, "A Little Bird". I like how these birds are simple and free (unless someone happens to catch them), how they greet each day with a joyful song, how they seem to have no worries and especially how they do not have or need many things to live and are so dependent on God. These are all qualities I need to work on and hope to have someday. I think my little bird and any bird I see will be a good reminder to me of this. And there you have it.
