HIS EYE. . .

All right.    Two days have gone on without me.    Soon to be three.   I’ll catch up soon

Meanwhile, a little something to think about:

Little birds, like a sparrow.  They seem to be able to find enough food, anywhere.

The Gospel appointed for today brought back memories of that wonderful old spiritual:   “His Eye Is On The Sparrow….. ”   (They used to play that on the radio!)      The little birds do not work or worry, but God has arranged it so that they are fed.    And from the Gospel:  Fear not, you are of more value than the sparrow.

Even when we hop all  around, twittering, not quite knowing what’s going on, not quite understanding the meaning of it all, not comprehending the beautiful magnificence of our existence. . .yet we are valuable to God, and so we exist.

A “few” centuries ago,  St. Augustine commented on today’s Gospel:    “That we live on this earth is His gift, Who gives us what enables us to live.”     (Published in Sunday Sermons of the Great Fathers,  Vol. IV,  p.92)
