Mama and Papa

The other day I wrote a Blog about TRUST . It seemed as if, I felt like I had been abandoned and didn't really know which way to go regarding some things in my life. I prayed and asked God to give me some direction because I was truly feeling very lost. As I went into our bathroom I could see outside the window, the little nest that a Robin has made in the rafters over our back porch. She has been very diligent in minding her nest and for the longest time never seem to ever leave it. But on this particularly day when I looked out, there were two Robins, perched on the edge of the nest. They touched their beaks together and it looked like they were poking deep into the nest. My friend told me they were probably regurgitating and feeding the babies within. All of sudden the one flew away after touching his beak to the other one's beak. As I watched, it occurred to me, that what I was watching was exactly the same thing that goes on in my home and many other homes in this world. Mama stays home and minds the nest while Papa goes out and earns their keep. I thanked God for showing me this little scenario and helping me to realize that all will be OK. When I feel lonely just reach out and He is there. His shoulder is always there for me to cry on and His ears always ready to hear my inner needs and fears. As He states in the Bible He knows my every need, fear and desire.

Jeremiah 1:5 "Before I formed you in the womb I knew you."

This is the Mama Robin in the Rafters.
Just to the left of the main part of the tree
can see Papa Robin keeping watch.    


Thank You God for being my creator and my Friend.
