A million canaries...

"What's the price of two or three pet canaries? Some loose change, right? But God never overlooks a single one. And he pays even greater attention to you, down to the last detail—even numbering the hairs on your head! So don't be intimidated by all this bully talk. You're worth more than a million canaries"...
Luke 12:6,7 (The Message)

This verse always blesses me! I read it again recently. He knows the exact number of the hairs on our head.... He said so!

And... He thinks I'm worth more than a million canaries!

That's a love that changes everything! And it has...

I am so thankful that I belong to the God who created the whole universe, He is the owner of everything! And HE cares about the very smallest details of my life... and yours...

I often have to remind myself that the Lord is as interested in the little details of my daily life as he is in the big deal things going on around the world.

What a beautiful thought! And nice picture to go with it. I like the 'million' canaries visual...

Hi Sonja - thank you for commenting about Lisa's prayer wall. I have you down for 7:00-7:30AM, Central Time, daily. Would you mind emailing the prayer wall address (smithprayerwall@yahoo.com) with your location, or time zone if you'd feel more comfortable that way, so I can make sure I can place your name in the correct time slot? May the Lord bless you for your sacrifice of time and dedication to prayer! -Sarah
