A little bird

Photo by Kurt Tong

I quoted this once before, but i'm going to quote it again. I like the truth of it, even though i don't always feel it.. my heart doesn't always feel free.. but today it does and i'm grateful:

“A little bird I am, Shut from the fields of air; Yet in my cage I sit and sing, To Him who placed me there; Well pleased a prisoner to be, Because, my God, it pleases Thee. Nought have I else to do; I sing the whole day long; And He whom most I love to please, Doth listen to my song; He caught and bound my wandering wing, But still He bends to hear me sing. My cage confines me round: Abroad I cannot fly; But though my wing is closely bound, My heart's at liberty." - Madame Guyon
