Roosters remind us to live

LETTER

Some years ago in a letter to the editor, a gentleman complained about a rooster waking him up every morning. He said roosters shouldn’t be in towns, and he was so fed up he would gladly do away with it.

I understand this but I say “don’t threaten the rooster”. Instead of railing against the rooster, be thankful that you have life and breath. The rooster is a special creature designed by God to herald in the new day. Rain, hail or shine, the rooster will crow and tell us “it’s a brand new day, it’s time to wake up, it’s time to live another day to the full, a day to praise our Creator”.

When you’re lying in bed and feeling annoyed at the rooster, remember that not everyone will wake up today, remember that you have breath and life and the rooster is the only creature designed especially to remind us to wake up and live at the beginning of every dawn, to make the most of this special day.

Every day is a gift, every day is a day that the Lord has made.

Let’s change our minds and instead of groaning about everything, be thankful and filled with joy. (As told by Papa Boycie Te Maro and sent in with his permission.)
