Why does the crackhead bird sing? Quite simply, because it has a song. Not just a song, but the song only that bird can sing. Even though that bird seemed to be in a jacked up situation (mainly from whatever caused it to sing all night rather than during the day - my theory - crack), it was still singing. The depth to this is no matter how low we are or how low we may be feeling, we still have a song in our heart. Even when our days are dark and dreary and we really don't seem to have mornings, we still have a song. Even if you are in a midnight time in your life - sing your song. Even if the the other birds aren't singing - sing your song. Even if your circumstances say you shouldn't be singing - sing your song.
I started tearing up a little when I wrote this because I can relate to that bird - NOT the crack aspect. : ) Lately, I have found myself randomly singing, which over the last few months has been nonexistent. Like, today I was making a lot of copies at like 4:20 (I am supposed to leave work at 4:30), but I found myself happily singing. I am not exactly in my "joy cometh in the morning" stage of life, but I know God put a song in my heart so that I can continue to thrive, no matter what! That's exciting! Even when we are in midnight stages - still trying to figure out who we are, what our call in life is, what we are supposed to be spending our time doing, how we can juggle everything we need to, what the economy crunch means in our life, [fill in your own personal blank]...God still gives us a song.
I encourage you to find it. And SING!
