“I watched a robin yesterday,
Fat with unlaid eggs;
Scratching in the grass for food,
Unconcerned about the snow around her legs.
Searching for today’s food,
A seed, or perhaps, a worm.
Building her nest high in the wood.
Weather does not make her squirm.
The grass is green today.
Tomorrow will bring more snow.
She’s come back to Iowa to stay;
No fickle weather will make her go.
They predicted an inch of snow for tomorrow. Today is sunny and the grass is green. It’s spring in Iowa. (Winter always has a few parting shots.) But we learn from the robin. Endure the cold; it will not last forever.
Job 35:11, “When God sets out the entire creation as a science classroom, using birds and beast to teach wisdom.” The Message
