These two animals are often disliked by us as they steal and scavenge, there are chickens on our allotments barricaded in like the crown jewels so the old fox can't get them and everyone's little seedlings are festooned with netting to keep the crow away, but they are only trying to survive. It's harder to think of something good about the crow, but I have - I take the nasty bugs and put them on a fence post and the crows take them away for me!
I have been reading through Psalms in the Bible that tell us animals as well as people are to praise God, that animals are important to Him and are very much part of His plan, that we should share our worship of God with animals.
In Daniel I found this:
All you birds of the air, bless the Lord....
All you beasts, wild and tame, bless the Lord
I will look at foxes and crows in a new light now, Gods creatures great and small, there's room for us all.
This was my pause for thought during Lent, for more posts visit Floss who has a list of other participants to visit.
