WHISNews21 Prayer Line and thoughts for this, Friday February 15, By Marty Martel.

Please add to your prayer lines, Julie’s Grandmother in Texas who is close to going home to be with her Blessed Savior. I know the following article speaks for itself and it is a great message for all of us.

God’s Eye is On the Sparrow:

Birds are so fragile and vulnerable. These amazing photos captured a drama with two of these little creatures. Kudos to the photographer. The newspapers that carried these photos sold out in every country.

A female bluebird was hit by a car as she swooped low across the road,  and the condition was fatal.


Her male mate brought her food and attended her with love and compassion.


He brought her food again, but was shocked to find her dead.


 He tried to move her


Aware his mate was dead and would never come back to him again,

he cried out with adoring love. ….. and stood beside her with sadness and sorrow.


 Millions of people were touched after seeing these photos in America , Europe, Australia , even India . The photographer sold these pictures for a nominal fee to the most famous newspaper in France. All copies of that edition sold out on the day these pictures were published. You have just witnessed love and sorrow felt by God’s creatures. The Bible says that God knows when a sparrow falls. Imagine how much He cares for us!

Live simply, love generously, care deeply, give fully.

 If you have anyone you would like to send a prayer out to please mail them to

for inclusion in to WHISNews21 weekly prayer line initiated by Marty Martel

in the interest of goodwill to all in need of a little help by the way of a prayer

  1. Just as a matter of interest, the 2 birds shown in this story are Barn Swallows rather than bluebirds.



    • Thank you Laurie I must admit I would never have known. It is always appreciated when we are corrected as we too need help at times. Please come back and visit again, I will try and replace the pictures when I have a spare moment. If you do have a nice picture for me to use I would appreciate you sending it and I will replace it with thee Barn Swallows. You can mail it to
