A Winter Song

Huge flakes of snow fell here today.
   Then it changed to rain, and then back to snow.

The beauty drew me outside- wearing plenty of layers against the cold temperature.

            Seeing this little Song Sparrow sitting in the Fig tree sent waves of warmth deep inside of me
                      and brought a smile to my cheeks.

               He didn't seem to mind that I was there

                                    ...as long as I didn't interrupt his winter song.

       I wonder if he knows the promise God made so long ago...

Are not five sparrows sold for two farthings, 
and not one of them is forgotten before God?  
But even the very hairs of your head are all numbered.
Fear not therefore: ye are of more value than many sparrows.
 Luke 12:6–7 


  1. It must have been a treat to see snow. Seems like your sparrow liked it. He's beautiful, as is the verse you shared!

  2. How beautiful! Your blog immediately reminded me of Ozark Grace, and what do you know? I come to the comments and see Connie's smiling face! Glad to have you comment at DRAH; otherwise, I would never have found you!

  4. Hello, sweet little Song Sparrow! You remind me how much I am LOVED and VALUED by the Lord, who made us both!

  5. Hi, Sharon,
