This little sparrow reminded me of an old hymn we sang many years ago. Unfortunately we don't seem to sing it much now. "His Eye is on the Sparrow" written by Civilla D Martin. The tune was by Charles H Gabriel.
The words to the first stanza are:
"Why should I feel discouraged, Why should the shadows come, Why should my heart be lonely And long for Heav' n and home, When Jesus is my portion? My constant Friend is He: His eye is on the sparrow, And I know He watches me; His eye is on the sparrow, And I know He cares for me.
The chorus follows with "I sing because I'm happy, I sing because I'm free, For His eye is on the sparrow, And I know He watches me."
Lovely words that remind us that a loving Heavenly Father is not only watching over the Sparrow but He watches over us.
This past week I got to spend some time in my peaceful place...the studio.
Seems like this time of the year one begins to long for spring and the special little treasures that the new season will bring. It is always nice to pull out some old photos and be reminded that soon the weather will warm and the flowers will start to bloom.
Pansies and Violas are such favorites that it is hard to resist not wanting to paint them.
As I have shared before I always plant a few in memory of my dear grandma. It just wouldn't be spring at Harmony Hills if there were not some of these special ones growing near by.
Speaking about a Peaceful Place I hope that if you have never visited Linda at Linda's Peaceful Place you will take a few minutes and stop over for a few delightful minutes. She has the most wonderful videos and uplifting quotes. You will certainly have a wonderful time. I know I always do.
