God Feeds the Birds... a Bread Stick? :)

We know that God feeds the birds of the air....  

This time, He used a Little Caeser's bread stick to feed them. :)

 We stopped at Little Caeser's Pizza and while some in the family went in to buy the pizza, I watched the birds. These sparrows were eating... and fighting over... a breadstick on the pavement.

Now, that bread stick is pretty large compared to those little birds... and it seemed that they could share, but they fought over it.

When I first saw the scene, there was only one bird at the bread stick... but others came quickly, so I can understand the one sparrow defending his "find".

 There was much movement as they pecked at the bread and tried to pick it up.

 This went on for a while... back and forth. They were able to eat a little, but wanted the whole thing. 

All of a sudden, one of the birds picked up the whole bread stick... and flew with it. I wish I had gotten that photo, but it happened so quickly. It sure looked funny to see that little tiny sparrow flying with that long bread stick.

 After carrying it over, the bird stayed in that spot to eat the bread... all alone.... with no competition.  

Actually, just before we left the area, I saw the sparrow on the right in the picture above, turn and start to walk toward the bread stick again,  so I assume to battle continued.

It was entertaining to watch and I'm glad we saw the little drama that played out in the parking lot that day. I am reminded of what God says in Scripture....

"Fear ye not therefore, ye are of more value than many sparrows."  Matthew 10:31

I hope you have a great week... and if your heart is heavy with burdens, I hope you will remember that God values us more than those sparrows He continues to feed. May we walk faithfully with Him this week... and learn to trust Him more.  Thank you for visiting my blog today. :)
