(Immersing in God’s Word, Part II)
Who cares what the bird thinks when you’re dipping in God’s Word?
Don’t let it snatch the seed of faith that you have recently heard.
Protect your head if you don’t want that bird to snatch the seed.
Stop chasing birds and meditate. On Bible you should feed.
Yes, Jesus said to look at birds, but only to discern
The fact that God provides for them. Yes, look at them and learn
How carefree those little flying creatures seem to be.
God cares for them in every way. How much more you and me?
It doesn’t take an animal rights activist to see
That there are times to leave a bird alone. Yes, let it be.
What the bird thinks doesn’t matter, nor do other people’s views
When you’re reading Jesus’ words (so much better than other news).

C.R. Flamingbush grew up in Wheaton, Illinois and graduated from Georgetown University with a degree in German and linguistics. After working seven years for the Department of Defense (an easy job), she took on the most difficult challenge in the world: a lifetime career of raising four children. Along the way she developed a passion for writing Christian superhero fantasy. She enjoys humor because it's Biblical (see the second psalm) and she loves to make people laugh - whether through her writings, her art, or just by being herself. Writing fantasy is her way of poking fun at human foibles and all the ridiculous ideas that so easily beset the human race, while at the same time honoring God in every way she can.
Flamingbush has been a member of Faithwriters since 2010, and several of her winning contest entries have been published by Fresh Air Press. She likes Fan Story and has been a Narnia fan since the age of ten. In terms of influence, she aspires to be the next C.S. Lewis but has quite a ways to go in that regard. Speed of Sight, a Superhero Adventure, is her first novel. A sequel is in the works.
