Birds are falling from the sky! Blackbirds and Starlings. Beautiful birds!
So sad. So scary. Why is this happening? In the New Year we need symbols of hope, not destruction!
Over a thousand birds fell from the sky in Arkansas, now a thousand more in Louisiana. Their organs show blunt-force trauma. My heart shows blunt force trauma.
Birds are, for me, a symbol of all that is good in the world. Birds remind me of the angels. Birdsong revives my soul when I am blue.
Since a child, birds are a symbol of hope, renewal, God's care for the smallest of creatures.
There is the well known scripture that not a sparrow falls without God's noticing.
So God, birds are falling from the sky. Are you noticing?
