This is for the Birds!


It is. This post is literally for the birds! These two baby doves are nesting in a hanging flower basket on the back porch of some friends. They are out of town for a few weeks and have asked our son, Zachary, to care for their yard and keep feed in their bird feeders.

Today Zachary mentioned that baby doves were in a plant, but I didn't realize it was a hanging basket! I crawled up on a chair to get a picture of them and had to wait until the wind swung the basket around to get a really good picture. It's amazing that their momma built the nest in a hanging basket with the southwest Oklahoma winds!

All things bright and beautiful,
All creatures great and small,
All things wise and wonderful:
The Lord God made them all.

Each little flower that opens,
Each little bird that sings,
He made their glowing colors,
He made their tiny wings.

All things bright and beautiful,
All creatures great and small,
All things wise and wonderful:
The Lord God made them all.

My brother-in-law, James has a blog, which is posted on my blog roll (called Waugh's Wall) on the right side of the Shine Like Stars homepage. He has been posting about little birds (Robins) living up on the pillars of their front porch. Every day he is posting a picture of their growth. It is amazing! You can also visit his blog here.
God's small creatures are truly amazing!
