Mama Bird


While sitting under the birdhouse my son painted, my girlfriend and I spotted
Mama Bird!
She was so busy!!!
It must take a lot to feed young baby birds because while we sat there and
"watched" our kids, Mama Bird made about 1,000 trips over my house and back
retrieve food and feed her babies.
I, uncharacteristically, fell in love with this sight. I am not a nature lover,
but it truly was a sight to behold and camera worthy.
When I came back out with my camera, my sweet girlfriend took pity and went
to her house to fetch her amazing super, deluxe camera.
I put my camera down as it wept in defeat and let her take this pic for me.

Have you ever seen something so beautiful? While we marvelled and the kids yelled and scared the birds and we disciplined, my girlfriend looked at me and said "Our
life is so easy compared to that Mama Bird."
And, boy, is she right. I just walk to the fridge to get the kids something to eat. I send the kids to the mailbox so I don't have to take the walk sometimes
(don't judge- lol)
and this Mama Bird is sailing over my house again and again to keep up with her
babies' food demand. Simply amazing.
"Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?
Matthew 6:26

Happy Sunday and if you see a super, deluxe camera blog giveaway, let me know, would ya?
