I often find my mind wandering far from you. I get lost amid the plans I have for today and the dreams I have for tomorrow.
Sometimes I hear the voice of a songbird, and it draws my mind back to you. You have made each bird unique, given each its own song, and called them to make the world a more beautiful place. You love this earth, and each of your creations, from the whales down to the smallest insects. You call each of us into a life of faithfulness, and I pray that my song may join with the rest of creation as we all sing your praises and follow not our own will, but yours.
