Birds, It’s Coffee-time – by a j mithra
Blue-crowned Motmot (Momotus momota) by Ian
Birds just love coffee..
Shade trees protect the understory coffee plants from rain and sun, help maintain soil quality, reduce the need for weeding, and aid in pest control. Organic matter from the shade trees also provides a natural mulch,which reduces the need for chemical fertilizers, reduces erosion, contributes important nutrients to the soil, and prevents metal toxicities…
That is the reason most birds to migrate to shaded coffee plantations..
Birds know that there is Life under the shadow of trees?
When life turns cruel and we face heat and storm we tend to forget that, we have an everlasting shade..
We forget to remember this verse,
And there shall be a pavilion for a shade in the day-time from the heat, and for a refuge and for a covert from storm and from rain. (Isaiah 4:6)
Why should you run away from your problems?
Don’t you remember that JESUS is your providence?
Jehovah is thy keeper: Jehovah is thy shade upon thy right hand. (Psalm 121:5)
Baltimore Oriole (Icterus galbula) by S Slayton
When you feel that tough seasons are approaching you, think of these birds and fly over to the everlasting shadow of JESUS, that is where you have perfect providence and protection…
Well, next time when you have coffee, just remember these birds and thank GOD for what HE has taught us through them..
But ask now the beasts, and they shall teach thee; And the birds of the heavens, and they shall tell thee: (Job 12:7)
