Saga of Mrs. Robin Continues...

This past weekend we had a couple of days of storms.  Lots of wind and rain and honestly we didn't think the robins nest was going to make it through them.  To our surprise it did but not without some damage.  You see the nest sits upon the flower head and due to the rain the section of the flower head the nest sits upon has started decaying rapidly. 
 Yesterday it came to our attention that the nest itself was starting to lean and was about to fall off. 
It rained again last night and this morning.  Something had to be done so with some help from our best friends (they loaned us the wood) I built a platform for the flower head and nest. 
 We are hoping this will help those precious three eggs hatch in a few weeks. We were happy to see Momma Robin has taken to the security we have helped provide her nest and eggs. 
Isn't it interesting how we seek the Lord for protection and sometimes He sends us a friend that will give us advice, we follow it and later find out how God was protecting us.  In this case with the birds we could of let nature take it's course and yet the Lord sends us to help protect His creation.  Feels great to help a few helpless eggs and a momma bird.  It reminds me of the scripture, "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?" Matt. 6:26.  In other words God cares for His creation and will take care of them even if it means He uses us to do so.  He also will take care of us and He does use others to help!
