Thankfully God is not in Quarantine!


Our youngest son Stephen will turn 15 this Easter Sunday! When we think of Easter, we are reminded once again that Jesus rose from the dead, claiming victory over Satan, sin, and death. No power could hold Him; no quarantine retain Him; He is God. Stephen drew this sparrow. Matthew 10:29-31 says, "Are not two sparrows sold for a farthing? and one of them shall not fall on the ground without your Father. But the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear ye not therefore, ye are of more value than many sparrows." Reminds me of the song, "His Eye is on the Sparrow" by Cicilla D. Martin in 1906 which goes:

"Why should I feel discouraged? Why should the shadows come? Why should my heart be lonely and long for heaven and home, When Jesus is my portion? My constant friend is He:

His eye is on the sparrow, and I know He watches me; His eye is on the sparrow, and I know He watches me.

"'Let not your heart be troubled,' His tender word I hear, and resting on His goodness, I lose my doubts and fears; though by the path He leadeth but one step I may see: His eye is on the sparrow, and I know He watches me; His eye is on the sparrow, and I know He watches me.

"Whenever I am tempted, whenever clouds arise, when song gives place to sighing, when hope within me dies, I draw the closer to Him; from care He sets me free: His eye is on the sparrow, and I know He watches me; His eye is on the sparrow, and I know He watches me.

"I sing because I'm happy! I sing because I'm free! For His eye is on the sparrow, and I know He watches me."

Yes, we can still sing; we can still be happy! Why? Because He has made us free! He lives!
