For the birds

I used to make fun of bird watchers. Dorky-looking men with tube socks and binoculars were what I imagined.
As I have grown older, I find peace in watching the birds in my back yard. I don't own a pair of tube socks, and I think I have some binoculars my husband found a long time ago.
The birds take for granted that I fill up their feeder at a personal cost to myself. They don't care that I have to go to the store, and lift the heavy box of seeds, pay for it, and lug it home.
The hummingbird feeder is monitored by one hummingbird who considers it "his" feeder. Woe to any trespassers, as he swoops down on the hapless bird invading his territory.
I think to myself this bird has a lot of nerve laying claim to something that he didn't work for, but so vigorously defends.
I imagine my relationship with God is like these two examples; we receive blessings through no work of our own, it is God's grace.
The Bible says in Matthew 5:45:
So that you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven; for He causes His sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous.
We should always remember Who it is that provides for us and be grateful.
I pray, dear friend, that even if you are hurting or heart broken, that you may be able to find blessings this day from He that is able to sustain you.
