"If you don't see the real me, you won't see what love has won..." Vota

What joy God's beautiful creation brings

on a day such as this, a day following such a rotten previous day; the Lord gives us evidence of His glory. In our peach tree we have a mama dove. She is not afraid of us and seems so peaceful sitting with her new baby. If you look at the nest, it is very amusing. She is such a big bird and her nest is soooo sparse. It is like she was a first time mom just trying her best to make a place for her baby. After my first picture she tucked her baby under her to protect it. Even this newbie mom naturally wanted what is best for her baby, even if by an outsiders standards her nest is not up to par.

Lord help all of us mom's who are wrongly judged or feel scrutinized (sometimes by each other) to remember that You give us the skills we need and the wisdom we need to raise our children if only we will follow You, just like you give this dove the same skills and love for her baby. Help me to remember, and moms in general, that we are not in a contest to have the brightest, most talented, prettiest, most fashionable... children. We are given them for such a short while to hold and care for. Help us to cherish them and hold them under our wings and teach them to soar like eagles.

Isaiah 40:31but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.
