No One Else Saw- But I Saw, I Saw

Psalm 34:15 (NKJV)

15 The eyes of the Lord are on the righteous,
And His ears are open to their cry.

I stood on the edge of the pond
Watching and pondering the my two winged friends.
This is the second year I have watched them arrive
They stake out their land and run off the rest.

It seemed no one else saw,
But, I saw, I saw

I have watched them many times with
adoration and even envy.
Wishing I could speak to them, even be as them.

It seemed no one else saw,
But, I saw, I saw

This day though I stood with a troubled heart.
Momma once  again abandoned her nest.
The same momma and the same nest I watched  with anticipation
the year before. 

It seemed no one else saw,
But, I saw, I saw

Once again her eggs left abandoned.
Once again my two winged friends had no babies following them along.

It seemed no one else saw,
But, I saw, I saw

It felt the weight of the atmosphere all around me
I sought in my spirit why I pondered so deeply this empty nest.
Why was my heart pouring out for my winged friends.

It seemed no one else cared, no one else saw
But, I saw, I saw.


Remember when your heart is broke.
Remember when all your efforts leave you barren
When you see the hearts of others produce 
Yet your heart is left alone
When it seems no one cares or see
There is one that sees
And He says

Although it seems no one saw
I saw, I saw

Matthew 10:29-31 (NKJV)

29 Are not two sparrows sold for a copper coin? And not one of them falls to the ground apart from your Father’s will. 30 But the very hairs of your head are all numbered. 31 Do not fear therefore; you are of more value than many sparrows.

Matthew 6:25-34 (NKJV)

25 “Therefore I say to you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink; nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food and the body more than clothing? 26 Look at the birds of the air, for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? 27 Which of you by worrying can add one cubit to his stature?

28 “So why do you worry about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin; 29 and yet I say to you that even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. 30 Now if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is, and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will He not much more clothe you, O you of little faith?

31 “Therefore do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ 32 For after all these things the Gentiles seek. For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. 33 But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. 34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.
