A penetrating picture of God's wings...

After a forest fire in Yellowstone National Park, forest rangers  began
their trek up a mountain to assess the inferno's damage.

One ranger found a bird literally petrified in ashes, perched
 statuesquely on the ground at the base of a tree.  Somewhat sickened
 by the eerie sight, he knocked over the bird with a stick.

When he struck it, three tiny chicks scurried from under their dead
mother's wings.  The loving mother, keenly aware of impending
disaster, had carried her offspring to the base of the tree and had gathered
them under her wings, instinctively knowing that the  toxic smoke would rise.

She could have flown to safety but had refused to abandon her babies.
When the blaze had arrived and the heat had scorched her small body,
the mother had remained steadfast.  Because she had been willing to
die, those under the cover of her wings would live...

"He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge;..."  (Psalm 91:4)

Being loved this much should make a difference in your life.
Remember the One who loves you and then, be different because of it.
