The birds of our hearts

As I sit here this morning and listen to the sweet sounds of the birds, I am reminded of the imagery used in some of the writings, such as, “The birds of the hearts of those who are devoted to thee”. I understand this as the sentiments in our hearts are carried by the birds toward our Lord. This is jut a small example of the imagery used by Baha’u’llah and Abdu’l-Baha. These writings are so full of sweetness as to make your heart just melt with love, the love that they are imparting to us and our love that their love engenders toward God.

I love my husband but I don’t just sit here and look at him admiringly, although at times I do, LOL. I also show him that love by providing service to his welfare. In the same way ,our love for God will naturally pour out towards our fellowman in ways of service towards mankind, creating love and harmony in the world.

God Is good!
