Each member of our family is so different, like individual components of a symphony. But, like a symphony, each part is important to the overall structure and sound of the piece. We all work together to make a beautiful sound...our family. Just as the Lord knit us together in the womb, He is now knitting us together as a family, for His glory, outside the womb.

Robin's Nest

Today, amidst the rainy and dreary day, a bright and joyful surprise awaited us!  Isn't this a lovely hanging plant?  My parents gave it to us.  Well, their is a hidden beauty and treasure inside.
Brad was standing outside, looking at the rain, and I asked him to move the planter out into the rain to drink up the water.  As he went to move it, he noticed this cute little nest with 5 eggs.  At first, he thought, "I didn't know they sold these plants with decorative nests and eggs.".  Then, he realized, it's real!  A beautiful Robin chose to build her nest and lay her eggs in our plant!  I am so honored!
Look at how perfect the nest is.  It's a work of art.  Aren't those eggs amazing?  We had noticed some Robins hanging out around this plant for awhile, but we just thought they liked sitting on it because it was sheltered under the overhang.  Surprise, surprise!  They were building a family and a safe spot to grow them!  Wow!
I hope they stay safe there from any storms or predators that might come along.  I'm glad to know that the nest is there, so that I will water around it.  Don't worry, we didn't end up putting the plant out in the rain.  We returned it to it's safe place under the overhang and will leave it alone, excited to know that those precious little eggs are there!


  1. Beautiful! The eggs are glorious! Smart robins! They know it when they find a peaceful and safe place and no doubt they knew a kind and loving mama was cherishing her own babies nearby. I love you!

  2. Those beautiful eggs were such a wonderful surprise! I love you so much, and I am so thankful that you appreciate God's little miracles as they happen all around you. You are simply amazing.

  3. How fun! Those eggs are perfect, and that nest is wonderful. I love your flowers! My flowers broke :(
