introversion at its finest...

My secret place.

If I told you where it was, I would have to kill you.

(just kidding.  sort of.)

new life

They were brave souls.

They came, they saw, they counted the cost, they built their nest.

They taught us How it's Done.

Mama sat on the nest until they woke up.
She normally then leaves to go build another nest
and start another family, while Daddy stays and
takes care of the babies...
...which he was very faithful to do!  
They were constantly hungry. Daddy made sure he fed them well...
...but Mama also stayed around and kept watch.
There were a couple of big, furry animals that both Mama and Daddy
decided were not welcome.
There was also a human that kept taking pictures.
How rude.
Time to fly!
I wonder if Daddy and Mama were as sad about that
as I am about The Parson's Daughter who is about
to fly from the Homeplace...
His 3 siblings Flew and Conquered!
They joined Daddy and Mama high in the trees to start their own life.
But there was just something about Him that couldn't quite make it.
He flew a little, but didn't have what it took to Make His Own Way.
He went to be with Jesus in the nest His Mama made for him.

Matthew 10:29
Are not two sparrows sold for a farthing?
and one of them shall not fall on the ground
without your Father.

...fear ye not therefore,
ye are of more value than many sparrows.
