Good morning, look at what is sitting right outside the window at my house. “I have a bird’s eye view “ I hope to be able to have that “view” as the eggs hatch and fly away. I hope to capture a picture of the mom sitting on them.🥰 I think the nest these birds make are amazing.@tholton

Wow Tammy! You sure do have a ”bird’s eye view” from your window. Seeing those three little eggs down in the protection and cover of that nest seems like an example of this verse of the song that Sara shared in her blog, “ A Vase in bloom”:
“Unrevealed until its season, something God alone can see.”
Yes, Debi, it does seem like a “bird’s eye view. “ I do hope to see the baby birds hatch and fly away, but I may not get to see that? Look what Proverbs 15:3 says:…” The eyes of the Lord are everywhere,
keeping watch on the wicked and the good.” Debi, I may miss all that I would like to see from my “bird’s eye view”, but God doesn’t miss anything from His view, does He?
God’s Bird’s eye view includes the words of the Psalmist, Psalms 50:11 “I know all the birds of the hills, and all that moves in the field is mine.”
And, His view is perfect without a flaw and for the purpose of sheltering His own! WOW oh Wow imagine just a cloudy vision of being in His view!
I hardly ever see a Mother bird nest sitting that these words of Jesus doesn’t seem like a bee sting. Are we too busy or distracted to really feel the freedom of being an egg in waiting? Are we so lukewarm that neither the cool of the egg or the warmth near hatch has an awaken call to understand, bird, egg, babe, wings and flight with many repeats.
“Jerusalem, Jerusalem, how often I have longed to gather your children together, as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, and you were not willing.” Matthew 23:37 NIV
“Are we too busy or distracted to really feel the freedom of being an egg in waiting? “
To see the Tammy’s photos of eggs waiting, helpless, dependent and then to see the mother bird now on her nest, waiting, brings a sobering reality to these words of Sara’s.
Takes me back to think more on the words Sara shared from Ann Smith:
“To nurture a “passionate sense of potential” in all situations and with all people. She says this means that she will try to see clearly what is, then beyond what is to the potential, and finally, to relate to each person or situation based on the potential, nourishing what could be.”
Lots to learn from God’s creatures.
I think Ann’s words that she, “will try to see clearly what is..” has the greatest potential to bring forth birth. We so often try not to see clearly what is… how can one get to nourishing what could be if we don’t know what is??
What a beautiful view you have of the birds to Tammy. So many lesson to learn from God’s garden view. The next view will be the little downy ones breaking through the outer walls that have been confining. Having many question I researched who feeds the babies and this is what I found:
For the first few days after hatching, crop milk is the only food that the mother bird provides to the baby birds. Both parents feed crop milk for a couple of weeks. As the babies get older, it gets seeds with the milk. When they are gradually getting older, they get more seed rather than less milk. Sounds like us. First we are physical babies or spiritually when we accept Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior in 1 Corinthians 3:3 said, I have fed you with milk, and not with meat: for hitherto ye were not ready to bear it yet neither yet now are ye able or ye are yet carnal: for whereas there is among you envying, and strife, and divisions,and ye not carnal, and walk after the manner of men. Second question? Do birds kick their babies out so they can fly. Search findings: Every summer, teenage humans and birds alike leave their parents’s nests to face tht big wide world. The birds are not quite as ready to leave. Young birds are not as quite ready as everything is given to them. The bigger and louder they get the greater the risk a predator will discover the nest. So the parent birds hustle to get them out of the nest or they stop feeding them to cause them to leave the nest for food.
. Just yesterday I saw a Hulk swooping down and all the birds started fllying around making the loudest noise to cause the Hulk to fly away and the Hulk, a predator flew away. So much to learn right here and you may have more thoughts than mine. We too are fed milk as babies at first, learning the stories in our textbook the Bible. Then then we grow if we follow Hesus-we pray for deeper meaning and God gives repeatedly. Then we realize God has given us instruction for living. Then we connect Jesus with all we have read, the book is about Jesus. It takes many teachers and experiences along the way and God has others come around us to keep us from the evil ones. In unity the birds sing. Revelations 5:5 says. What a beautiful sound the birds sing when they are unity. This unity is when we come together to worship the Lord Jesus Christ who loved us so much that he took all of our sins on himself to the cross so that we would live eternally. Wonder, have you asked Jesus to forgive your sins, have you asked Him to come into your heart? Have you joined in unity as ambassadors for Jesus Christ with other who love Jesus.? Do you lift up you praise to the one who paid with His life so our hope is fixed on eternity with Jesus! Know like the birds – Jesus and all the saints will be around in your walk to lead you on the right path. Psalm 100:1-2 says Shout joyfully to the Lord, all the earth, Serve the Lord with gladness; Come before Him with joyful singing. The birds are role model. Psalm86:1 Sing to the Lord a new song; sing to the Lord, all the earth.
Remember not to isolate yourselves as the enemy is looking to destroy you. Like the hulk! Palms 22: 3 God inhabits the praise of His people.” Join us and Sing. Join the birds as you come to the garden to pray- Sing!
