We had a chorus of goldfinch and a house finch on our fountain this morning. I think they were enjoying the cooler weather, too. See if you can count how many there were. One is hiding.
I was thinking how easy it is during this tumultuous time in our country to lose our focus and get consumed by worry. You and I need to keep our focus on the bigger picture of life, be wise in decision making and seek our Lord's guidance. These verses below are helpful to me in situations where I have no control.
"Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life?. . . But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own."
Matthew 6: 26-27, 33-34.
