A Joyful Reminder

"The time of the singing of the birds is come, and from early morning until the sun sets, their sweet notes are a constant reminder of the duty and delight of thanksgiving. Out of the joy of their hearts they trill forth their gladness for the sunshine and the opening flowers and the unfolding leaves, and I have heard the same tender song when the rain has fallen and cold winds have blown and dark clouds have swept across the sky. Many a time have the birds in the garden sung a lesson in my listening ears and rebuked my dullness or my unbelief by their gleeful carolings."
