The numerous cardinals have taken up residence here! And of course, God has shown me another similarity between us and the birds. It's amazing how God teaches us if we will only listen! The birds realize that they have shelter here. They have food and water and an occasional treat. Once they realized this, they decided to stay - they like it here. The more time spent in their new sanctuary the less likely they are to leave. They have found a safe place. And so it is with us and God. The more time we spend with Him, the more we want to stay with Him. The more time we spend with Him, the more we come to know Him. Have you found a home with God or has He just become an occasional place to stop if you need something? Take time today and everyday to be with God. Set aside time - make time. Start your day with God. After all, He is the One that gave it to you. Spend time with your creator, find sanctuary in Him.
