Listening

Sitting by the window Sadie looked out at the morning light. She studied the patterns of the sun rays as they filtered through the window. The warmth of the rays brought a smile to her heart. Sadie fidgeted in what seemed like an oversized chair as she waited. Trying not to make a sound she pressed her little nose up against the glass. She watched as a Robin tilted its head this way and that. It hopped and hopped tilted and hopped. Mama said if I listen quietly I can hear what Jesus has to say, she thought to herself. Sadie tilted her head back and forth quietly as she watched the Robin hop along. Fidgeting again in her chair; it’s so hard to sit quietly and wait. Sadie wondered if the Robin was listening for what Jesus has to say. As She watched the Robin intently tilt its head, she tilted her head. This way and that she listened too! Sadie didn’t know why but somewhere deep inside her heart she knew her answer. And she knew it was exactly what the Robin heard Jesus say!  “If you search for me, you will find me” With deep joy Sadie ran eagerly to tell Mama.
