An important lesson to learn from the birds

Lately when distressed, I remind myself of the birds.
So happy outside my window, even in this searing heat they neither carry nor gather any water.
Somehow they begin and end each day with complete faith, and are fully rewarded.
Their Lord Provides for them, and they know it.

And so they set out each day, 
to search for food and as they do,
 they sing and soar and swoop and play 
and are as light as can be.

They teach me a lesson in trust. 
Surely their Lord can also take care of me and my troubles too.
 Surely He Will.
