A Bird for me

See my lil brown dove? I see her all the time. She seems so much slower than the other birds and a little dissheveled. I look at her and admire her odd look and demeaner. Something is so sad about her. Something about her seems like she's tired.
I was thinking about my life and my struggles. My losses and my pains. I feel a little bit like that dissheveled lil dove on my patio. Too young to feel what I feel. I always knew I was an old soul, but never really felt "old". I have my moments and when I look at this little dove, it is me I see during those times.

Aww, I love the little brown dove! I think I love it the most because it needs love the most.
I think of this verse when I am down because it reminds me of the closeness of God when I hurt...
"I am close to the brokenhearted and near to those crushed in spirit".
He is close to you too sweet sister. He turns it all around for good in some way or another.

I love the little dove. I heard one outside my family room window this morning. The dove is a sign of peace. So, maybe you will meet a dove who is able to carry your pain for you so you can experience peace and comfort.
I will be praying for that...
