Are Not Two Little Sparrows Sold For A Penny?

Sparrows

I’m sitting in the car waiting for the clinic to open. What will the doctor say? I press the button and the window rolls down. It’s springtime and the air is cool and dry. The sound of sparrows in the eaves reaches my consciousness. I lay my head on the headrest and close my eyes. The sparrows’ perky song reminds me:

“Are not two little sparrows sold for a penny? And yet not one of them will fall to the ground without your Father’s leave and notice. But even all the hairs of your very head are numbered. Fear not, then; you are of more value than many sparrows.” (Matthew 10:29-31,*). “Cheep, cheep” I take a deep breath. No wonder I feel so peaceful. The sound of sparrows reminds me that, because I matter to Him, God is overseeing everything that happens to me with great love and concern.
