As I walked into my bedroom what did I see?
I looked through the window in the distance
And to my great joy saw God answer for me
A personal prayer I had uttered weeks earlier
A simple and heartfelt request for a cardinal
A beautiful bird I had not seen in some time
Why I desired to see this beautiful red bird
I know not particularly, but it appealed to me
Perhaps cardinals in Florida are a bit of a rarity
Beyond the black birds and bluejays secondarily
From my days as a boy with a birdhouse out back
Sometimes the squirrels the bluejays would attack
Yet today this gorgeous cardinal with an orange beek
Was strangely still as he was listening for me to speak
Fully red from pointed fluffy head to luscious tail
Upon seeing this bird it made me feel quite well
Although in the distance sitting upon my fence
I somehow knew this lovely bird was God sent
For that Sunday in my office I had been writing
But not only writing, also whistling a worship song
A powerful church song in my spirit all the day long
Feeling a sense of sweet serendipity, I watched intently
When suddenly increasing my joy the bird flew to me
Drawing near to hear equally with intense curiosity
Surprisingly straight to me, directly toward the window
Stopping to rest just feet from me upon the clothes line
My spirit rejoiced within, my mind content and sublime
For not only was I aroused by nature but my loving Creator
Who truly answers my heartfelt prayer, proving He does care
Therefore I shall not be trapped by unbelief’s foul snare
Because I know my God knows atop my head every hair
My heavenly Father’s ears are open, His eyes looking down
Undoubtedly upon me His marvelous grace does abound.
