Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

"Some may say,
Birds sing to attract another bird to mate with, or to mark their territory.

I'd say
Birds firstly sing to praise their Creator.
That they, by doing so, happen to attract a bird to mate with is just so much to the good."

- Herman Finkers

This statement came into my thoughts today, as I was enjoying a blackbird singing and thought about this new season. How much I enjoy Springtime and what the Bible sais:
That we sould seek to love, think of, enjoy and praise the Lord first,
and that He than will just give us the things our hearts long for and the things we need. (this includes practical things like food and clothing)
I could babble on about it, but believe the words are clear.
