Swallow mourns his mate

The following was sent to me via email. It is very touching!


Love and Sorrow...Felt By All Living Creatures

Swallows: Here his mate is injured and the condition is fatal.
She was hit by a car as she swooped low across the road.

Here he brought her food and attended to her with care
and compassion.

He brought her food again, but was shocked to find her dead.
He tried to move her....a rarely-seen effort for swallows!

Aware that his mate is dead and will never come
back to him again, he cries out..........

He stood beside her, saddened by her death....

Finally aware that she would never return to him, he
stood beside her body with sadness and sorrow .

Millions of people cried after watching this picture in America and Europe and even in India. It is said that the photographer sold these pictures for a nominal fee to the most famous newspaper in France. All copies of that newspaper were sold out on the day these pictures were published. And many people think animals don't have a brain or feelings?????


Pictures like these draw out strong emotions from most people. Even amazement!

The question is, how many people have even thought of those like the one in the picture here below?

Did you have a thought this week for the unborn that have been aborted (nay, murdered!) this week?

When did you mourn the death of one of these little ones?

(4) Whoever humbles himself like this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. (5) Whoever receives one such child in my name receives me (Mat 18:4-5)

See that you do not despise one of these little ones. For I tell you that in heaven their angels always see the face of my Father who is in heaven. (Mat 18:10)
