The other day, I saw something that I had never seen before but heard of–a bird flew into the window in our front glass door. As it happened, I was looking at the door for whatever reason and saw the whole thing. The bird came head strong straight into the glass and blam. It fell towards the ground and out of my sight. I thought that might be the end of it.
My eldest daughter walked over to the door and told me that the bird was just standing just outside our door breathing heavy. I walked over and went outside. The bird did look like it was in shock and who wouldn’t be after such a hit to the head. It has also relieved itself on the concrete and I was a bit concerned that the bird had bit the dust until I got outside and could clearly see it was breathing.
Call me crazy, but I stood about two to three feet from the bird and spoke to it. After all, it is one of God’s creatures and we know for fact that at least one animal was able to talk when God loosed it’s tongue. So, I spoke to the bird. I mentioned things like “Are you ok?” and “I bet that hurt” and things. I also prayed for the bird to feel better (again call me crazy but he is God’s creature) and as I prayed for it, the bird turned and looked at me. Then I looked in the glass and saw trees and told the bird that the trees were out in front and pointed. As I pointed the bird looked in the direction I was pointing and then back. I told him to be safe and went inside.
My eldest daughter was a bit astonished because she believes as I do that the bird was listening to me and understood me. I sat down and said a little prayer for the bird and then looked back at the door. As I did, the bird hopped into view, paused a second (almost as if to say thanks) and then flew off. Our little encounter over and the bird flew off.
I don’t know if the bird really understood me or not. I don’t know if praying for this little animal helped or not. What I do know is that I felt that there was a small connection to this little one of God’s creatures and my eldest daughter agrees with me.
