Your Song

A bird doesn’t sing because it has an answer, it sings because it has a song. (Maya Angelou, late American poet)

How pleasant it is to hear the melodic chirping of a songbird. Its singing relaxes us and relieves our tensions. For a time, we can forget all the difficult questions of the day, and the issues we have to respond to can wait a few minutes. Wouldn’t it be great if our presence could bring such relief to others? Not because we solve their problems, but because we lift their spirits by our “song.”

A glad heart makes a happy face; a broken heart crushes the spirit. (Proverbs 15:13)
