Daily, instances of wonder draw me back to the Wildlife Rescue… Where baby swallows shiver with excitement tiny storms as I approach their cage. Once every hour they bear this furious hunger, quenched only by 4 or 5 mealworms. Amidst the chaos, one storm is stilled, then another. Once they are satisfied, the wind and waves cease. There’s almost a reverent hush. In that moment a brimming over thrill speaks to me that I should live with such jubilance; with the same enthusiastic hunger, not for physical food, but with desperate delight for the wealth of God’s promises. “They that hunger and thirst for righteousness will be filled.”
