Saw this little fella on the bird table yesterday evening. Much as I like the myriad of Crows and Magpies that usually inhabit our garden, it’s nice to occasionally see something different. In my ignorance I whispered across the kitchen to my wife “look there’s a lovely green bird on the bird table”, to which she replied “oh yes, it’s a Green Finch”. And what a beautiful bird it is too (although it's looking a little cross at being disturbed by the man wielding a camera from the other side of the window)!
I am reminded of these words of the Lord Jesus:
"Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more important than food, and the body more important than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life?
