Last week’s storm snapped the berry-laden holly tree branch out back.
Gazing from my window, I lamented with the tree, feeling broken inside, as well.
Beautiful tree, injured by a storm.
But, this morning, a robin perched atop the snapped site.
She dipped to the branches below, feeding on red berries,
Ripened just right for a rainy March morning.
A broken twig makes a mighty fine perch!
A broken heart can be a place to rest, as well.
A place to gather our prayers.
How wonderous is our Christ, teaching from Creation:
Perch on brokenness, and still be fed.
Thank you, LORD!
