This morning I awakened with worries on my mind..
I went right to the window to see what I could find.
A little bird was sitting on the feeder oh so small..
It was a little junco who had come to us this fall.
He ate so very slowly and he was so all alone..
I wondered why he came today to visit my sweet home.
The windy weather warned us of ice that's on the way..
He seemed to have no worries.. as the feeder starts to sway.
My head is full of worries..of a daughter on the road..
I prayed that she'd be safe and gave my Lord the load.
The little bird looked knowing and cocked his little head..
He seemed to say, "Balisha, you have nothing more to dread."
He kept right on eating though he took some time to look..
At me sitting here and watching in my breakfast nook.
He said to me, "Balisha, you have nothing more to fear.
Don't you know that Christmas is so very near.
Your family will be safe... tomorrow you have a date..
To gather round the Christmas tree and start to celebrate.
You all will make some memories to carry through the year..
Of good times with a family that you hold so very dear.
You've given it to God...He'll be with her all the way..
Merry Christmas, dear Balisha it's what I came to say."
