Make a Joyful Noise unto the Lord
"Make a joyful shout to God, all the earth! Sing out the honor of His name;
Make His praise glorious. Say to God, 'How awesome are Your works! Through the
greatness of Your power Your enemies shall submit themselves to You.'" (Psalms
No 1000 voice chorus in the finest venue can compete with the bird choir I was
treated to each morning. From the raucous "Squawk, Squawk, Squawk" of the Pionus
to the shrill whistles of the cockatiels to the peeps, chirps, and "Pretty
Birds" from the Linnies my house was vibrating with the sound of happiness.
Sometimes the 'music' was soft and sometimes loud and boisterous but always it
showed the happiness of these little balls of feathers.
True they had to be in somewhat smaller surroundings than they were used to but
they were still happy and singing.
Humans could learn a lesson from these colorful songsters. The day outside might
be gloomy, we may not be feeling well, someone may have insulted or hurt us in
some way but we, like the birds, should praise God.
