A Sparrow On The Window Ledge

The day before yesterday I was down by the blue river side and didn’t know how to pull myself together. Finally I prayed that Lord relieved me from the pain that was tearing me into pieces. I fell asleep without getting any help. After a while I waked up because I felt that a bird was singing in my room. It was on the window ledge but the window was open. I peeped behind the curtain and I saw a little sparrow who sang from the bottom its heart. It was slightly downy so that it has stared its first summer and everything was new for it. I knocked gently the window to get its attention but it didn’t respond. When I added the volume it almost fell down from the ledge before flew away. I managed to snap many pictures but only reached its back.

This incident helped me but only a moment. The dark clouds started to gather around me again. I creeped back to my bed even it was a sunny noon. I was on the twilight light zone when I heard a muffle bump. “Too heavy approaching”, I smiled and checked that everything was all right. Yes, my saviour from the heaven sat again on the window ledge and perhaps thought: “What was that. I didn’t see anything”. I dressed myself and went out saying to myself: “If that small creature has strength to move on, I can’t be worse”.

  3. Birds are amazing such a small bird as a Sparrow is very powerful in voice and energy. God sent you him to help you heal.

    Sparrow aids in opening the eyes to our self-worth and instills dignity and empowerment. He teaches the importance of voice and communication and the timing of exertion and retreat. It is time to sing your song in all that you do. Sparrow teaches cooperation and sharing responsibilities whether at home or work. Are you helping or should you be helping or working more in some area of your life? Sparrow aids in survival instincts by sharpening intuition to make proper choices. He will bring to awareness any old tendencies so that you can realize the newer more conducive means of being. Sparrow teaches assertion so that you may survive in spite of any circumstances with a balance of joy and empowerment. Are you ready to be like Sparrow?


    I hope this give you more insight to your small but mighty visitor.

      Thank you for the comment and information on the sparrow.
      Now when I have been surrounded by many severe questions
      I have often consoled myself with the thought that I could end my
      Life in a peaceful rural cottage with birds and trees. I am not sick
      But in the need for having beauty instead of cruelty.
      This little bird gave much strength and I uploaded this scene here
      Hoping it warms up other people’s life as well by telling that
      The miracles are living here among us.
      Take care and feel fine

    How awesome is that! When nature arrives inside of one’s space and gives us so much! In this case, a beautiful bird song just for you.


  12. Nature is healing. For you, perhaps it is birds. For me, I love to see trees dance in the wind and smell their green foliage.


  13. Beautifully said. I hope life is treating you better…?

    Also: I wanted to congratulate you on your 10,000 views. That is a remarkable achievement! 🙂

    Sometimes, just when we need it most, we get a sign that things will be okay and that gives us the strength to carry on. Thanks for sharing this!

    Birds are very relaxing even when not singing. I have a huge tree outside my kitchen window and I love watching them flying in and out of the branches, clinging on to them when the wind is so strong and all the while tweeting to each other. Love this post about your little friend the sparrow. Thanks for sharing.


    • Yelling Rosa says:

      Thank you for having the post. I live on the fifth floor and the nearest tree is not next to the house so the sparrow was clever when it found me. Now it hasn’t dropped by. I guess it has the sparrow things in mind.
      Take care 🦉🦉🦉
