National Geographic several years ago

of God's loving "wings".
After a forest

bird with a stick. When he gently struck it,
three tiny chicks scurried from under their dead
mother's wings. The loving mother, keenly aware

to the base of the tree and had gathered them
under her wings, instinctively knowing that the
toxic smoke would rise.
She could have
flown to safety but refused to abandon her babies.

scorched her small body, the mother had remained
steadfast. Because she had been willing to die,
those under the cover of her wings would live.
will cover you with his feathers, and under his
