Look at the Birds of the Air

Said the Robin to the Sparrow,
"I should really like to know
Why these anxious human beings
Rush about and worry so."

Said the Sparrow to the Robin,
"Friend, I think that it must be
That they have no heavenly Father
Such as cares for you and me."

   -- Elizabeth Cheney.

There's a special providence in the fall of a sparrow.

   -- Shakespeare, Hamlet, Act V.

Lord I ask mercy and forgiveness for the way I worry, fear, and regret that betrays Your colossal trustworthiness to a watching world. Grant me grace to rest in Your goodness and fix a steady gaze on You... You are the only sight worth living by.
