An article in National Geographic several years ago
provided a penetrating picture of God's wings...
The story read like this...
After a forest fire in Yellowstone National Park,
forest rangers began their trek
up a mountain to assess the inferno's damage.
One ranger found a bird
literally petrified in ashes,
perched statuesquely on the ground
at the base of a tree.
Somewhat sickened by the eerie sight,
he knocked over the bird with a stick.
When he struck it,
three tiny chicks scurried
from under their dead mother's wings.
The loving mother,
keenly aware of impending disaster,
had carried her offspring to the base of the tree
and had gathered them under her wings,
instinctively knowing that the toxic smoke would rise.
She could have flown to safety
but had refused to abandon her babies.
When the blaze had arrived
and the heat had scorched her small body,
the mother had remained steadfast.
Because she had been willing to die,
those under the cover of her wings would live.
"He will cover you with his feathers,
and under his wings you will find refuge"
Being loved this much should make a difference in your life.
Remember the One who loves you and then,
be different because of it.
Please pass this on to others you care about.
Don't drive faster than your Guardian Angel can fly.
