Greetings! Well, at this moment it is Wensday not Monday, but I suppose that I need to stay on track with my commitment. To explain myself let me say that I have decreed Mondays to be “McGuffey Mondays” and I am hoping to quote from the godly and lovely McGuffey Electic Reader I’ve been going through. So I’ll get started!
“The Little Bird’s Song”
1. A little bird, with feathers brown ,
Sat singing on a tree;
The song was very soft and low,
But sweet as it could be.
2. The people who were passing by,
Looked up to see the bird
That made the sweetest melody
That they had ever heard.
3. But all the bright eyes looked in vain;
Birdie was very small,
And with his modest, dark-brown coat,
He made no show at all.
4. “Why, father,” little Gracie said,
“Where can the birdie be?
If I could sing a song like that,
I’d sit where folks could see.”
5. “I hope my little girl will learn
A lesson from the bird,
And try to do what good she can,
Not to be seen or heard.
6. “This birdie is content to sit
Unnoticed on the way,
And sweetly sing his Maker’s praise
From dawn to close of day.
7. So, live, my child, all through your life,
That, be it short or long,
Though others may forget your looks,
They’ll not forget your song.”
Isn’t that such a lovely poem, sisters? Let us be as the little bird and sing our Maker’s praise without reputation and fame. Instead, let us live in the fear of the Lord and walk in His ways. Notice that the little bird was content to be unseen and to serve his Lord. Oh, that I too may have such a content heart! Well, off I go for bed. Have a blessed day sisters!
“Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the LORD, she shall be praised.”
