I left the grocery store sticker-shocked. Eating healthy is not cheap.
As I put my cart away and double-checked my receipt, I worried that the groceries wouldn’t last until my next paycheck. Then something stopped me in my tracks. At least a dozen sparrows were flitting about, resting on carts and eating from bales of hay.

What joy it must bring Him to watch us enjoy the bounty of His harvest. I bet He can’t pull Himself away.
