Lots of birds live in my neighborhood because it's full of large, mature trees. So every morning I hear the wonderful sounds of bird songs. But one morning when I had to be up before dawn, I stepped outside and was astonished to hear how vigorously the birds were singing. So many songs were emanating from the trees as light began to overtake darkness in the sky that my whole neighborhood was alive with sound.
The birds sang with such beauty and intensity that their music seeped into my soul, compelling me to keep listening. Rather than eat breakfast indoors like I usually do, I spontaneously grabbed some some food to take outside and ate while I walked around the neighborhood listening to the bird concert going on.
The more I listened, the more I found myself feeling hopeful and excited about the day. All thoughts of my daily "to-do" list had been pushed aside by the inspiration God had sent me through the birds.
