2012 Project 365 + 1 - MyLeroyPhotography

The reality of life is that we all must die. That's so sad and heartbreaking, especially if you don't have the love of God to sustain you. This little sparrow has been sick for a few days. When I didn't see it yesterday, I figured it had finally succumbed to death's beckoning. Yet when I arrived home from work, there it sat on the feeder. She wasn't feeling good and was given to chills. I just wanted to scoop her up, love her, and let her die gently in my hands, but she would have been terrified. So I left her alone in peace. I expect her to be gone in the morning. Poor thing. I just keep praying that God take her peacefully.

"Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? Yet not one of them will fall to the ground apart from the will of your Father." ~Matthew 10:29
