What a touching story....

An article in National Geographic several years ago provided a
penetrating picture of God's wings. After a forest fire in Yellowstone
National Park, forest rangers began their trek up a mountain to assess the
inferno's damage.
One ranger found a bird literally petrified in ashes, perched
statuesquely on the ground at the base of a tree. Somewhat sickened by the
eerie sight, he knocked over the bird with a stick. When he struck it, three
tiny chicks scurried from under their dead mother's wings. The loving
mother, keenly aware of impending disaster, had carried her offspring to the
base of the tree and had gathered them under her wings, instinctively
knowing that the toxic smoke would rise. She could have flown to safety but
had refused to abandon her babies. When the blaze had arrived and the heat
had singed her small body, the mother had remained steadfast. Because she
had been willing to die, those
under the cover of her wings would live.

Kinda reminds you of what Jesus did for us! Learn to experience the
warmth and protection of life beneath the wings of the Almighty.
"He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou
trust" (Ps 91:4).
