After loosing our factory to the fire and the huge amount of money that we'd invested in it, we had been busy trying to recover and start from zero again. Time seems to fly so fast that we can only accomplish so little in a day, eager to do more and try harder the next day.
One beautiful morning as I woke up and went downstair, the living room seems to be devoid of life. Probably because there's little light penetrating through the curtain. I neared the window and slowly slide the curtain to a side.
But something moving caught my attention and I stopped. Something that brought joy to me. In an instant, i was in a complete standstill, admiring the little graceful creature doing it's business.
It's a bird, building a nest on the palm three beside my window. It;s only about a feet away from the window. I quickly took out my DSLR, assembled the zoom lens and talking photos from afar, fearing that i might scared it off.
As graceful and chirpy a bird can be, this bird had made my day. And this had reminded me that we don't have to worry too much about tomorrow, for God will provide if we have faith in Him. God take care of the birds and the flowers, what less would God do to us?
I showed my wife the photos that I'd taken, and she was equally excited too. Now, we keep the curtain closed everyday, and would peep through the curtain to check this beautiful bird out. As much as we yearn for a child, we're looking forward to see the bird to have it's companion, and to lay an egg or too.
As I write this entry, one particular song lingers in my mind: "Don't Worry, Be Happy" by Bobby McFerrin. Yah, Don't worry about tomorrow. Oooo...Oooo....Ooo....oooo........ (start singing)
