SURVIVOR

He sits majestically in his tattered nest, surveying the remnants of his environment.  A tornado ripped through the night before, cutting trees in two, uprooting some and destroying hundreds of nests in the rookery.

This Great Blue Heron survived the turmoil – the devastating wind – the fierce torrential rain.  Now he sat, staring out over the destruction below.  Many of his  friends had vanished or died.   The aging bird had been spared, remaining behind and lonely.  Would he be able to pick up the pieces of his former life?

If God’s eye is on the sparrow,  He certainly would provide for this valiant victim of the river.  He would rebuild day by day, with the help of the Creator, but today he was simply a survivor – crushed by defeat, yet unaware of hopelessness.

About atimetoshare.me

As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on Amazon.com.
