It was one summer's afternoon while I was soaking up the sunshine, when I heard a thump only 10 foot away from me. I looked to see what it was; I could see a little finch lying on the floor. The little wild bird looked like it had broken it's legs, and couldn't move.
I immediately called my husband, and he came and picked up the little cute bird. I asked him to kill it and put it out of pain. He said, "no" and carried the injured bird into his office, and cared for it by putting the bird in a little box. We could see the little bird could not walk, and its legs kept splitting apart. Simon told me that he prayed to God for its recovery. After 3 hours Simon left it in his office.
On return, we found the little bird had not only recovered, but had flown onto the door window ledge.
Simon called us, and told us the cute little wild bird had recovered; and it was time to watch Simon let the bird fly off in the garden.
However, what happened was lovely, and amazed us. The little wild bird became Simon's friend. The bird would fly off, then hop back onto Simon's finger. We had never seen a wild bird become so friendly, even letting Simon stroke it
The little wild bird seemed to be enjoying a tour around the garden.
As born again believers, we felt God was showing us what all his wild animals will be like when He restores the world back to Paradise; and where there will never again be any more suffering or pain, dying or killing.
We look forward to seeing the day when, "The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid; and the calf and the young lion and the fatling together; and a little child shall lead them." Isaiah 11:6.
Dear friends, WILL YOU BE THERE?
