I walked outside church today to change the sign out front. It was a pretty day, not too hot, so I was looking forward to the break. On my way back into church I had to walk under the scaffolding that has been in place for almost a year. (You see a restoration contractor has been repairing the church steeple, which is almost 60 years old.) As I walked up the handicap ramp, I looked up because the birds were singing and dancing and I wanted to see the fun. And just over my head, where the tree has worked its branches around the scaffolding, I could see a bird's nest ... precariously resting between the scaffolding pipe and a thin branch. Oh dear. I had my phone in my back pocket, so I used it to take this picture. I don't know if you can see it ... right in the middle of the photo, just below and to the right of the red painted pipe ... is the bird's nest. I walked up and down the ramp in amazement of this bird's architectural achievement!
Look at the birds in the sky. They don't sow seed or harvest grain or gather crops into barns. Yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Matt 6:26
