A Blog by Chicken Wrangler Sara

I was talking on the phone with our oldest daughter last week and lamenting all the changes that have had to take place recently. She is expecting their first child in July so is already changing many things in her life.  It is stressful.

As we talked, I noticed a bird carrying sticks into the bush in our front window. I commented on it, and Brian said from the other room “It’s building a nest.”

I was struck by the contrast. Our world seems to be falling apart and this bird is calming building a nest and preparing to lay eggs.

Brian reminded me of the verse in Matthew 10:29-31 “Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? Yet not one of them will fall to the ground outside your Father’s care.  And even the very hairs of your head are all numbered.  So don’t be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.I tried to get a picture of the nest through the window.

Brian was mowing the front yard last week and the momma left the nest to get food.  He was able to get a better picture with the eggs.I’m going to make a card with this picture and the verse from Matthew.  I’ll put it on the fridge to remind me not to be afraid.  I am worth more than many sparrows.
