When a Sparrow Falls.

 First: I can not take credit for the following.
I got it in an email, and I had to grab some tissue!

She was hit by a car as she swooped low across the road

Her mate brought her food and attended to her with love and compassion

 He brought her food again, but was shocked to find her dead.
He tried to move her...a rarely-seen effort for swallows!
 Aware that his sweetheart is dead and will never come back to him again,
he cries with adoring love.
 He stood beside her, saddened of her death.
 Finally aware she would never return to him, he
stood beside her body with sadness and sorrow.
Many people cried after seeing these photos in America, Europe, Australia, and India.

The photographer sold these pictures for a nominal fee to the most famous newspaper in France.
All copies of that edition were sold out on the day these pictures were published.

And many people still think animals don't have feelings.
You have just witnessed love and sorrow felt by God's creatures.

The Bible says God knows when a sparrow falls.
How much more He cares for you and me.

Wonderfully sad and joyful at the same time.
After living with nature for a while I learned it's much more life-giving being with God's creatures and not so much with people.
We all have so many masks we must wear to survive in today's society. Animals and smaller creatures have no such masks. They are REAL and it's a real experience to share in their existence. Thanks for the file. -- Dan
