Since I was headed to the grocery store, I decided to get me a bite to eat at the Burger King first. You know what they say about never buying groceries on an empty stomach!😃
After getting my food at the drive-through I pulled into an empty parking spot. Half-way through my sandwich I noticed a cardinal pecking around in the grass. So, I tore a piece of bread off and toss it out my window.
I thought how blessed I am that I do not have that kind of fear in my life. It made me think of all those who do live in fear. Children who live with parents who mistreat them. Wives whose husbands beat them. Youngsters who have grown-ups who sexually abuse them. And, how about those poor people in Ukraine who are fearful of Russian bombs destroying their lives and being shot at from tanks.
There is so much fear in this world and that little red bird reminded me that it is a reality for so many people. I pray for them. May their fear be eased. May they live in peace. May we all have compassion.
