This is for Deborah Cole who asked if I would do a Doodle 101 / Hummingbird. I learned so much, I am grateful to connect with so many Sisters in Christ who hunger and thirst…& “feed” like the Hummingbird.
Thank you Deborah for teaching me about “The Shema!”
“God told His people to repeat the Shema “Hear O Israel, the LORD is one, love Him with all your heart mind strength… etc.many times a day – just like a hummingbird, coming to the feeder 5x an hour due to high use of energy but small calorie storage space.” – Deborah Cole
I also read further about the Hummingbird…
“Obtaining the food needed to live from day to day is a fundamental part of life for birds. Imagine small hummingbirds discovering a large amount of food in one place, such as a feeder. (God’s word is our miraculous FEEDER!) For them a feeder is supernatural. (I’m not making this up! These Ph.D’s actually wrote that!!!) Within a very short time at a feeder, a small, hungry hummingbird can solve its immediate requirements for food.
The very size of hummingbirds makes their survival an even bigger adventure. Hummingbirds must eat more than their weight in food each day, and they fulfill this need by eating often. Because their survival depends critically on eating frequently more than any other animal – they continually face the danger of starving.”
(So do we!!!!!!)
by Reed Hainsworth, Ph.D. and Larry Wolf, Ph.D.
Can I just say WOW! I will NEVER look at the Hummingbird in the same way. I cannot wait to put this Doodle onto the pages of my FEEDER (Bible) so that I will be reminded of the need to return to it over and over throughout my day! It is the source of all we need…no matter WHAT we are facing…Proclaim, THE LORD IS MY GOD! He meets us there in our praise!
Thanks again Deborah, I am so humbled by your request and thankful for the lesson I have learned!
I hope this resonates with all of you as much as it did with me!
Thank you Father.
