Chirping For Mommy and Daddy
Alexandria, Mount Vernon and East Mason avenues, June 11. An animal control officer met with an employee about a nestling house sparrow that was found outside a store under an air conditioner. Three pairs of sparrows had built nests and laid eggs that had hatched recently. The officer worked with the employee to determine which next the baby belonged to. The officer held the chirping bird next to each nest and waited for the parents to chirp in response. When a set of parents chirped to the baby, it was returned to their nest.
If only life was that simple for the rest of us, right? Jesus asked, "Are not two sparrows sold for a farthing? and one of them shall not fall on the ground without your Father. But the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear ye not therefore, ye are of more value than many sparrows" (Matthew 10:29-31)
