During this time of year, Spring, the birds are extremely noisy before sunrise. In order to save money on the power bill and try to enjoy fresh air, I wait as long as possible to close up the windows and turn on the central air conditioning, so I hear everything outside early in the mornings. I can just imagine the birds, as I hear them chirping and singing and making all their noises, being excited to welcome another day, the warmth of Spring, the anticipation of building nests, laying eggs, raising new offspring, flying and soaring from the trees; just doing and being what they were created to do. They sound so happy, they are praising their Creator for another day to live and breathe and soar!
Psalm 148:7-13 (KJV) "Praise the Lord from the earth, ye dragons, and all deeps: Fire, and hail; snow, and vapours; stormy wind fulfilling his word: Mountains, and all hills; fruitful trees, and all cedars: Beasts, and all cattle; creeping things, and flying fowl: Kings of the earth, and all people; princes, and all judges of the earth; Both young men, and maidens; old men, and children: Let them praise the name of the Lord: for his name alone is excellent; his glory is above the earth and heaven."
We, more than the birds, should greet each morning with thanksgiving and praise to our Creator for yet another day, to live and breathe and soar, to do and be what He has created us for - to show forth His glory as His masterful creation!
