Under God's Wings........

 

  An article in National Geographic several years ago provided a penetrating picture of God's wings. After a forest fire in Yellowstone National Park, forest rangers began their trek up a mountain to assess the inferno's damage.   One ranger found a bird literally petrified in ashes, 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 had refused to abandon her babies. Then the blaze had arrived and the heat had scorched her small body, the mother had remained steadfast.   Because she had been willing to die, 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)

 

  Being loved this much should make a difference in your life. Remember the One who loves you, and then be different because of it. Please pass this on to others you care about and don't drive faster than your Guardian Angel can fly. My instructions were to send this to people that I wanted God to bless. Please pass this on to people you want to be blessed.
