For the Birds

We have 5 new family members! The kids noticed a few weeks ago that there is a bird's nest on Abbie and Bethany's window sil. We went to look at it, and there were 4 tiny blue eggs in it. About a week later they hatched. They keep growing and growing! They now fill the entire nest and they only hatched 9 days ago! They are full of feathers, except their necks (as Abbie says their necks are still bald, skinny, and LONG, especially when Momma comes to feed them!) We an look out their window and keep an eye on them, but when we go outside, the momma sits in the tree and yells at us! :o)
Now...here's something interesting! The first two pictures were taken with my old camera. The one of the newly hatched babies was taken with Abbie's camera since mine was broken. The last one was taken with my new camera. Can you see the difference? :o)

God's creation is so beautiful. These remind me of Matthew 6: 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?
