Consider the Birds

I awake once again, 
the sounds of birds  
greeting the morning.  

For them, every day  
is the Lord's day.  
They make no distinction  
between Sunday  
and any other day,  
worshipping continuously.  

I expect birds will be in heaven,  
but here on earth,  
they teach us about  
the presence of God.  

If we attend to them,  
they instruct us in worship.  
Robins and sparrows  
teach us songs of joyous praise.  
Doves sing lament psalms.  

What would life be like 
If Christians took their cues 
From the birds?
