Excerpts from Our Words are Blossoms
If Birds Could Talk
Apple Blossom Time
I asked the little fellow,
"Tell me, sonny, what's your
The little fellow said with
"I'm my Daddy's boy."
He was probably three or
He knew who he was, and to
whom he belonged.
"I have a good Daddy and he's
big and strong;
And I'm my Daddy's boy!"
He knew his Daddy loved him;
that his Daddy's lap was his.
Walking hand-in-hand with
that was childhood bliss.
Like the little fellow, I too
can say with joy,
"I am my Father's child,"
a relationship I enjoy.
My Heavenly Father loves me
and cares for me each day,
And comforts me by
whispering, "Everything will be okay."
Soon we'll be seeing chocolate rabbits
and stuffed bunnies
but the real bunnies have already been
making tracks in the snow on the farm.
On our below zero winter days,
they've been playing games on the lawn.
And this conclusion I've drawn -
God cares about rabbits and clothed them
but whatever does occur
to their long ears when it's 10 below?
Yet each Spring they reappear and show
their healthy ears and wrinkled noses.
It doesn't look like anything has frozen.
The rabbit's ears are special. They have
an unusual trait.
They can pick up sounds from far and
Always alert and listening, they don't
At any slight rustling, the rabbit pricks
up its ears,
then sets them back,
and like a shot it is out of sight.
The TV rabbit ear antenna got its idea
to be a receptor and to receive sounds
out of the air.
God has given His people ears too,
and He makes it very clear.
Over and over we read in His Word,
"He who has ears to hear, let him hear!"
We get assistance listening,
because the Holy Spirit gives us "rabbit ears".
As we read His Word, He lets God's voice
loud and clear.
And He helps us understand it and keeps
as we hop through our days
with the Holy Spirit as our expert.
BIRDS COULD TALK
The robin on the lawn
was a handsome bird.
With a characteristic hop,
he bent to grab an insect from
Then paused and stood erect,
a stately form in his formal

"You can see that I'm content.
God made me a robin;
I'm His design.
And a happier robin you'll never
"But you humans, I hear you

Not satisfied with who you are,
forgetting you're God's crowning
glory by far.
So hold your head high,
you're His special creation,

APPLE BLOSSOM TIME
Oh, apple tree,
You put on such a show
when Springtime comes;
Dressed as a bride
attired in white,
covered with dainty blooms,
you are a lovely sight.
Your beauty stirs me as I gaze.
Have you heard my "oohs" and
"aahs" of praise?
The birds are chattering as they
We are admiring
A masterpiece of God.
