Morning Silhouette


Morning Silhouette


A morning silhouette

against the murky sky

feeding on apples

that missed the pie

You’re content

upon this happenstance

as the early bird

of circumstance

Thoughts of tomorrow

never arise

while feasting upon bounty

with watchful eyes

Neither planned nor planted

and yet you reap

resting in the providence

that the Father keeps

An often misconstrued message

I can learn

that the Creator’s grace

is never earned

He bestows the gift

upon whom He wills

For his Son has already

paid the bills!


The morning that I took these pictures I was the early bird, too, as my wee dog decided that he needed to go outside earlier than usual. Having had my ears unplugged at the doctor’s office the day before, I was greeted by a very loud chorus of birds as I stepped out the door! ( that rhyme was accidental…) So I had to grab my camera.

Early Bird Blessings ~ Wendy

Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or stow away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them.  Are you not much more valuable then they?  Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life?

Matthew 6:26-27
