As I walked along, I saw a beautiful Christmas tree delicately decorated with ornaments.
Looking more closely, I realized there were many ornaments of birds.
There’s something about a small bird sitting quietly and safely in a tree branch that gives a feeling of serenity.
If you think about it, when danger seems to be near, birds will flee.
Their calm presence makes a subtle statement of peace.
Psalm 29:11 reads:
The LORD gives strength to His people; the LORD blesses His people with peace.
It is fitting to have joyful, peaceful bird ornaments at Christmas.
What a perfect time to remember that Jesus is the Prince of Peace.
