|I love to watch the hummingbirds at my bird feeders.|
|They are so aggressive in protecting "their" feeder, |
wanting to keep all the nectar to themselves.
|This little Ruby Throated Hummingbird found his favorite perch|
to use in keeping a look-out on the feeder he claimed as his own.
These hummingbirds make me think of a book I am reading
called "Dangerous Surrender" by Kay Warren.
In this book she speaks of being just a
"white suburban mom with a minivan",
who was busy raising her family and serving in her church.
She states that she was totally unaware of the AIDS crisis
until one day when she read this phrase in a magazine:
"Twelve million children orphaned due to AIDS in Africa."
What does that have to do with hummingbirds at their feeders?
I think too often I'm like that little hummingbird
who tries to hoard all the sweet nectar for himself.
Reading this book makes me wonder what else I should be doing...
