"Dede's Walk With God"



The Ultimate Gift
A little something to put things in
After a forest fire
in Yellowstone National Park,
The 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 the 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.
She was willing to die, so those
under the cover of her wings would
"He will cover you with His feathers, and
under His wings you will find refuge."
(Psalm 91:4)
