These cardinals come to this winter berry bush outside our window and feast on those little berries.
Why is it that year after year we watch them in amazement, as if we have never seen cardinals or birds before?
Is it because they can fly? Or is it because it is so freekin’ cold out there and they don’t seem to mind it much?
Or maybe, just maybe, these lovely creatures remind us that we are held in a Divine Embrace, just as they surely are, cared for and nurtured in ways we don’t know or understand.
