The sparrow herself finds a home
and the swallow a nest for her brood;
she lays her young by your altars,
Lord of hosts, my king and my God.
They are happy, who dwell in your house,
for ever singing your praise.
As they go through the Bitter Valley
they make it a place of springs
(the autumn rain covers it with blessings).
They walk with ever growing strength,
they will see the God of gods in Zion.
~Hebrews, Chapter 13
What a beautiful image! Even the birds find their home in the Lord's House! "They make it a place of springs. The autumn rain covers it with blessings." Autumn rain can be chilling, but here, scripture is telling us that it "covers (us) with blessings."
