Unscripted. Unedited. Real.
5 mins of writing on a set topic.
I’ve decided that if I ever wanted to do more writing….and to really get serious about it then I need to be able to just write. Simply write. So I’m going to join some friends linking up at Lisa-Jo’s blog and we shall see what fun ensues…..
So here goes….
I love that God made birds to sing. I love that different species of bird have different calls and sounds and songs.
There’s something so magical about waking up in a new and foreign to you country and hearing the native birds singing. The chorus at first light. Welcoming the new day.
Even after natural disasters, birds sing on.
If someone is listening or if no-one is listening, birds sing on.
Birds don’t need score cards or record deals, they don’t require positive feedback or constructive criticism. They just sing on.
I think we all could learn from the birds. The games we play and all.
I can’t help but wonder what our worlds would look like if we just sang the songs we were supposed to. What if we didn’t look to the left or the right, but just up?
What if we didn’t check stats or facebook comments and likes, retweets and responses? What if we just wrote the lyrics of our songs, the words God places on our hearts?
What if, like the birds who don’t need to sow or reap, for their heavenly Father looks after them, what if we didn’t worry about how we would be received?
What if we all sang the songs we were created to sing – because we couldn’t not do that? What a mighty sound that would be.
