I am blessed to be currently staying in a home where my window gives me a view of a tree top. It is wonderful to see the green leaves spread out and give shade to the passers by in the lane four floors below. This tree is so close that if I reach out I may be able to touch the leaves. Sometimes there are flowers on the tree which are fondly eaten by squirrels.
Once, I opened my window and was watching the scenic beauty outside. I noticed the flower of the tree real close. And to my surprise a squirrel approached the flower. Normally, squirrels do not approach if they see a human nearby. But this one was unaware of my presence and started to nibble on the flower. I stayed still as I did not want to lose the opportunity of watching this bundle of fur so close to me. It stayed there munching the flower. Then suddenly, it noticed me. To my surprise, it did not scamper away. It stay put, munching and stared me in the eye. For a few seconds we saw each other. When it finished eating, it was on the other side of the tree within seconds.
From that time, I have been watching the squirrels. I see them in the mornings. Seems like there is an entire family of these on that tree. They keep running around, jumping from branch to branch. Most of the times they play hide and seek. They are a happy lot playing and munching on the tree bark or the flowers as they do so.
It comes to my mind that God has provided for these little creatures and they seem to be so thankful enjoying the life they have and in the process giving joy to observers like me. Reminds me Jesus' teaching "Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life"
God miraculously provides... always.
