The baby birds on our porch have sprouted feathers. The mama thrush is very protective of them — guarding the nest even when we’re walking past.
The people who walked in darkness
have seen a great light;
those who dwelt in a land of deep darkness,
on them has light shone.
“I am Jesus… I am sending you
to open their eyes,
so that they may turn from darkness to light
and from the power of Satan to God,
that they may receive forgiveness of sins…”
“I am the light of the world.
Whoever follows me will
not walk in darkness,
but will have the light of life.”
(From Isaiah 9, Acts 26, John 8
