Mothers Love!

An article in National
Geographic several years ago provided an interesting 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 gently 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. Then the blaze had arrived and the heat had scorched her small body, the mother had remained steadfast. Because she had been willing to die, so 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.
My instructions were to send this to people that I wanted God to bless and I picked you. Time waits for no one. Treasure every moment you have. You will treasure it even more when you can share it with someone special. To realize the value of a friend...lose one.

That is one great story. It goes to show you to what extent a mothers faith and love will go. We all need more of it.
I have lost more than one friend, and have come close to losing more.
This story is very uplifting.

Stubby I thought so too! Some say it is false but I still have rescue animals that have given their lives so their pups can live! I have a friend that use to fight fires and she had a lot of stories on how burned animals servive. So even if it isn't 100% it reprsents the ones that are.
Glad you got something out of it. I knew some would!
You are a deep thinking man!
