I grew up in the ’60’s and like most boys enjoyed comedy and scary movies. The God of all scary movies, Alfred Hitchcock, directed several moves like Rear Window, The Man Who Knew Too Much and Dial ‘M’ For Murder to name a few. But his two thriller movies of all time were Psycho and The Birds.
Ya birds…Yesterday, I was leaving the grocery store loading the car when my attention was drawn to thousands of birds squawking in the trees that were in the parking lot. Now for a moment, I thought of the movie The Birds because there were so many of them. If you’ve seen the movie, you remember they’d be hanging out on power lines waiting for the right moment to attack. Especially that scene where the kids are leaving school and the birds go crazy trying to attack the kids leaving school.
Then I had a thought…Psalm 145:10 says, All your works praise you… Now I know that this is a ‘feather brained’ idea thinking that birds would be praising God at the end of the day… I mean come on…and then this verse came to mind…Matthew 10:29 Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? yet not one of them will fall to the ground outside your Father’s care.
Then I thought of a chorus I first learned many years ago after becomming a Christian…
Love Him In The Morning
Love Him in the morning, when you see the sun arising,
Love Him in the evening ’cause He took you through the day,
And in the in-between time when you feel the pressure coming,
Remember that He loves you and He promises to stay.
When you think you have to worry,
‘Cause the things you have to do,
Remember He’s not in a hurry,
He’s always got time for You,
So… Love Him….
Maybe at the end of each day…we should praise the one who loves us…and make a big deal out of it!!
