God uses my little cockatiel to teach me so many little object lessons.
Amarillo surprises me every morning! He sings every morning as I get ready for work--and the nice thing is that He doesn't do so until I am actually up and out of bed. However I do not think we are making much progress in his growth if trusting me yet.
Are we compelled to praise our Lord like Amarillo demonstrates so clearly every morning? Rejoicing in our hearts with overflowing gratitude and thankfulness regardless of the circumstances?
Psalm 28:7 "The LORD is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in him, and he helps me. My heart leaps for joy, and with my song I praise Him."
