I just love bird nests! In the background of this painting I have written some of the words from the gospel song "In the Garden".
One of my favorite verses.... ....
"He speaks and the sound of His voice
Is so sweet the birds hush their singing
And the melody that He gave to me
Within my heart is ringing."
This song was written by Charles Miles in 1914 and was inspired by John 20:15 which describes the experience of Mary Magdalene at the tomb of the newly risen Christ, in a garden setting.
Charles wrote this song in his windowless dark basement.
With the dark economy, the bitter winter weather and this song in my heart, I yearn for the lazy days of summer, garden parties, bird's chirping and a brighter economy.
