Windblown


The wind blew 
hard 
very hard. 

His feathers were ruffled 
and he spread his feet 
and held on. 

I've felt the winds blowing 
hard 
very hard.  

I've been ruffled 
and battered 
trying to hold on.  

It was the same One 
who watches out for the birds 
who held me. 

It's His call
to calm the winds
or me.

I have been in that wind, I think most of us have. Your image is s fitting, and the message comforting. Of course I never look as pretty as this jay when I am ruffled!

I'm so glad that the one who cares for the birds, watches us too!

Little blue birds can look so sweet at times - and other times so ferocious!

This is so beautifully said and the words describe much of what I'm going through. I still have hold, but the wind has been fierce.
