God's Care for us

'A skeptic noticed a robin's nest in a gigantic elm and heard a still small voice saying, " If God spent a hundred years in creating a tree like that for a bird, He will surely take care of you."
God is so interested that He takes us one by one and arranges for every detail of our life. To Him, there are no little things. The God of the infinite is the God of the infinitesimal. He cannot forget the saints whom He has engraven on the palms of his hands.'
"Behold I have graven thee on the palms of my hands; thy walls are continually before me." (Isaiah 49:16)
Excerpt taken from Traveling Toward Sunrise by Mrs. Charles E. Cowman

This is so good. Thanks for sharing.
About my blog header that I made for Charlotte's Weblog. I used two different programs that I have on my computer, one is called LineForm and the other is ArtText. I think these may be just Mac programs. I'm not sure, but I have made similar graphics on PC computers. It just takes a lot of experimenting.
