God's Wings -

A little something to put things in perspective...

After a forest fire in

YellowstoneNational Park forest rangers

began their trek up a mountain to assess the inferno's damage.

One ranger found a bird literally petrified in ash, perched
statuesquely on the ground at the base of a tree. Somewhat
sickened by the eerie sight, he knocked over the bird with a stick.
When he gently struck it, three tiny chicks scurried from under
their dead mother's wings. The loving mother, keenly aware of
impending disaster, had carried her offspring to the base of the
tree and had gathered them under her wings, instinctively knowing
that the toxic smoke would rise.

She could have flown to safety but refused to abandon her
babies. Then the blaze arrived and the heat scorched her
small body, the mother remained steadfast ...because she had
been willing to die, so those under the cover of her wings would live.

'He will cover you with His feathers,
And under His wings you will find refuge.'
(Psalm 91:4)
