James 1:17 Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.
I just came through another really stressful and frustrating time with immigration and after three days of going from office to office including the American Embassy all of my papers were once again in order and we headed to the camp to have lunch and a relaxing day with Marcello and Cecilia and the kids.
Everyone was a little startled except me! I don’t know why but I just knew this was a precious gift from God that He sent down to show me that He cares for me just like He cares for the birds of the air. He really does and there is never a need to worry or to doubt His care or the plans He has for us and as the scripture says we can trust Him because He never changes like the shifting shadows! Pretty soon every one was laughing at the antics of this obviously very tame little gift.
The kids were very anxious to hold him too so I explained to them that first they needed to win his confidence by talking softly to him and making very slow movements towards him with their finger or arm. It only took a minute or two for Danny to get him to perch on his hand and you can see he was very pleased.
The only one that was not happy was Esteban! He got really scared when this bird flew out of no where and landed on me and was even less thrilled when mom Raquel decided to let him sit on her finger! He loves birds but never saw one behave like this one!
Our buddy really had a good time with Mauricio and couldn’t decide which sholder he liked bestand after he tried them both…..he settled for the top of his head!After she was sure nobody was going to get hurt, Ana decided to take a turn and he loved the banana she fed him.
The kids named the bird Adcock after me and thanked me for leaving them with the gift that God gave to me! What a perfect gift! What a perfect God! Happy New Year from El Salvador!
