As my faith wavers this passage comes to mind. Why do I fear? In the ups and downs of my almost 65 years God has never abandoned me. Even in the times I have abandoned Him, He waited patiently for me to come to my senses. So I will not be afraid and I will feed the birds in His honor.
“A bird does not sing because it has an answer. It sings because it has a song.” ~Chinese Proverb
“I heard a bird so sing, Whose music, to my thinking, pleased the king.”- William Shakespeare
“I once had a sparrow alight upon my shoulder for a moment, while I was hoeing in a village garden, and I felt that I was more distinguished by that circumstance that I should have been by any epaulet I could have worn.” – Henry David Thoreau
“No bird soars too high if he soars with his own wings.” – William Blake
