Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “ch.” Find a word that starts with “ch” and use it as your prompt word. Bonus points if you start your post with that word. Enjoy!

Chirping to their heart’s content, the little sunbirds flew from flower to flower. It was a pleasure to look at them. If the flower was facing downward they would cling to the stem and face downward putting in their beaks into the flower for a second and pull out again. The next second they move on to another flower. I think the two sunbirds are couple. One is lighter in colour and the other has rich black colour and peacock blue on the neck. They look so innocent as they fly among the bright flowers.

As I look at them and at their innocence the thought about child abuse comes to mind. A few days ago, I read about Phillipines being the hotspot of child abuse. It is happening everywhere. All those children locked in with their abusers! Just thinking about their lives makes me question the wisdom of God. People talk about innocent childhood. But is there any childhood for those children?  I cannot even imagine about those people who get pleasure in robbing the innocence of children.
