They tell of the glory of your kingdom and speak of your might,
so that all people may know of your mighty acts
and the glorious splendor of your kingdom.”
(Psalm 145:10-12 NIV)
There was a little bird on the balcony railing outside my window. She coaxed me to stop, pay attention to her, to nature all around. She ranted for a long time.
I wish I knew what she said, who she was jibber-jabbering with, what birds might be listening. Her chatter sounded urgent, so important, not a pleasant sound. The bird suddenly stopped gabbing and preened herself under each wing.
