The Bird

I had a memory flash into my mind the other night from my childhood. There was a bird, I don’t remember what kind, and for some strange reason it flew into the window of our house. Crashed right into it.  I suppose it didn’t know there was glass. Then, it got up and did it again.  Just kept crashing into our window.  Over and over, again and again. This went on for quite some time.

I was only 10 or so, and watching this happen made me sad and quite confused. Why was the bird doing that?  Didn’t it see it was hurting itself?

Last night as I was thinking about this memory I realized that must be how Heavenly Father feels watching us. I’m sure he too thinks, “Why do they keep doing that?  Don’t they know they are going to get hurt?”

I think he feels deeply emotional watching us in the midst of our trials. He loves us. We are His children.

Likewise, our Savior has gone through all of our pains, when he atoned for us. He knows how we feel. He felt the same pain, both physical or emotional.

It is my belief that we are not alone. The two most important people that there are; Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ, are going through our ups and downs along side us.
