eggs 002

These are our little house guests as of 8:00 a.m this morning. Tough to know exactly what’s going on, as the momma bird constantly moves and rolls them around the nest. I have a bad feeling about the one that began hatching yesterday. (scroll down for pics) I doubt it has made it. There has been no further progress.

Sadness dripped from my eyes, but hopefulness still wells up in my heart.

Life is like that some days. Today is one of those days. This week- I’ve had a number of small disappointments. Plans cancelled. Things I had looked forward, to changed, delayed or lost altogether. A sick kid, broken things, messy things. In-convenient things.

They aren’t earth shattering things. Just small things, really. But still. Disappointing. Sad. Some are worrisome.

Yet- I still have so much hope. If not today, maybe tomorrow. If not now, maybe soon. The eggs- the plans… life, all of it. I am not in control. But, I trust the one who is.

Keep checking back… we’ll wait and watch for the babies together, with an expectant hope, as God does what only He can.

Ecclesiastes 3:11

” He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the hearts of men; yet they cannot fathom what God has done from beginning to end.”

“Dear Lord- I am not very patient. Yet, you have me here- waiting- on so many levels. I hear your voice saying- “wait, while I work” and my hearts impulsive first answer is “hurry up! I can’t wait any longer!” Yet, day by day- as I wait, I’m learning I can. Because I am. Thank you Lord- for working and for making me wait- I love you- amen.”
