do have wings
An article in National Geographic several
years ago provided a Penetrating picture of God's wings.
After a forest fire in Yellowstone National
Park, forest rangers began their trek up a mountain to assess
the inferno's damage.
One ranger found a bird literally petrified in
ashes, perched statuesquely on the ground at the base of a tree.
Somewhat sickened by the eerie sight, he
knocked over the bird with a stick. When he gently struck it,
three tiny chicks scurried from under their dead mother's wings.
The loving mother, keenly aware of impending
disaster, had carried her offspring to the base of the tree and
had gathered them under her wings, instinctively knowing that
the toxic smoke would rise. She could have flown to safety but
refused to abandon her babies.
When the blaze had arrived and the heat had
scorched her small body, the mother had remained steadfast.
Because she had been willing to die, those under the cover of
her wings would live.
