Don't you just love surprises? I have a pretty wreath on my front door made with silk flowers. I noticed two birds flying around my porch for the past few days. I mentioned it to my husband and he told me they were probably building a nest in my wreath. Oh no! I thought.... we'll be attacked by birds. I went inside to inspect the wreath from inside the front door glass and look what I found.... A perfectly formed and beautiful bird's nest, buried within my arrangement, almost like I had put it there myself for decoration. The little bird had come so far, I dare not disturb her work and her future plans of hatching babies there. Today when I inspected her work, I found her first egg! My husband wants to rope off the front porch area to keep people from getting near the nest. I told him I will put a sign on the front door, hoping people will notice before they get attacked by the mama bird. Just a few weeks of inconvenience.... not being able to use the front door... will be worth the perfect view I have of God's creatures in all their glory!
