It is so refreshing to wake to the sound of birds. When you hear their song you know that you are alive. If their song was not heard the thought would be either I am no longer of this earth or the end (the world as we know it )is near. It sounds Apocalyptic, I know but it is so important to stay in tune with oneself, with others, and with God. We should learn to recognize the signs of others suffering, of others in need of an encouraging word. We should listen for that baby crying from hunger. We should place ourselves second to none but second to many. A charitable heart, a mind filled with wisdom, a mouth that holds back with unkind and unthoughtful words. Yes, we must stay in tune. God always does. Psalms 34:17 The righteous cry out, and the LORD hears them; he delivers them from all their troubles.
