Beautiful Sounds

Teresa Poucher


  I love to hear the birds sing.  I get up early before sunrise, sit outside, and listen to the birds.  I find it a wonderful way to start the day — a cup of coffee, the Word of God, and the birds.  It’s peaceful; I feel thankful and happy.  

 

Science will tell us the birds are searching for a mate or trying to impress her, or possibly marking their territory. Sometimes, a bird may be sending a warning of impending danger.

 

  Studies show that stress is relieved just by listening to the birds singing.

 

  I enjoy springtime so much; it seems the birds come out earlier and sing longer.  I feel, and like to believe, they are thankful for the warmth, new variety of food, and starting a family. 

 

  Some of us like to hear the sound of rain on a tin roof; others like to listen to waves lapping the shore.  We find these sounds calming as we relax and let our mind get rest.  So why do we find great pleasure in seeing new flowers blooming or the trees swaying in the breeze?  

 

  I believe the birds are praising God.  Have you ever noticed how the frogs are croaking after the rain?  They, too, are thankful for their habitat.  

 

According to the Word of the Lord, Psalm 150:6, “Let everything that hath breath praise the Lord. Praise ye the Lord.

 

“…the valleys also are covered with corn; they shout for joy, they also sing.” (Psalm 65:13)

 

Let the heaven and earth praise him, the seas, and everything that move the therein.” (Psalm 69:34)

 

“Let the floods clap their hands, let the hills be joyful together.” (Psalm 98:8)

 

  If all of creation praises God, shouldn’t we?  We get pleasure from nature praising God.  Our God desires and enjoys our praise; it is beautiful.  Ladies, you want to be beautiful, don’t you? 

 

“Praise ye the Lord: for it is good to sing praises unto our God; for it is pleasant; and praise is comely.” (Psalms 147:1)

My day starts with a cup of good coffee and a talk with Jesus. I started walking with Jesus when I was eighteen. That was In March 1979. I have fought many battles. No I haven’t won them all, but I have learned how to not only survive but thrive. Let me share with you...
