God's Wings

God's Wings painted Feathers

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 arrived and the heat scorched her small body,
through this the mother remained steadfast...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)
