More birds...

Okay, apparently the chickadees lost the house. Or else they had just been hanging around outside like it was theirs. Because the wrens seem to have taken it over. At least I think these are wrens. They are very sweet. We spied on them all afternoon and finally came up with a picture. Here is one of them. I'm not sure, but I think this is the male. His markings are a little more clear.

They are still making a nest, even though we had seen that the nest was already large on Tuesday. This is probably their first baby! :) Anyway, they have a pretty song. They were carrying on a lot this afternoon, maybe trying to let the chickadees know to stay away!

Peanut drew a picture of what their house looks like on the inside. Complete with a baby crib, of course. I can't get the scanner to work tonight, but I'll try again tomorrow.

Such a blessing to have this little family move in close to us! They are precious to God, and he knows when each one falls. (Matt. 10:29)

Funny isn't it, how little kids sometimes only hear the stuff you would rather they not hear. We were trying to listen to music on the way to Bible Study this morning. They broke in with news, and Peanut heard just what they had said and started asking questions. We talked about this scripture, and I'll share part of it here:
"Depart from me, you who are cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels. For I was hungry and you gave me nothing to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me nothing to drink. I was a stranger and you did not invite me in, I needed clothes and you did not clothe me, I was sick and in prison and you did not look after me..."Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty, or a stranger or needing clothes or sick or in prison, and did not help you?" He will reply, "I tell you the truth, whatever you did not do for one of the least of these, you did not do for me." Then they will go away to eternal punishment, but the righteous to eternal life. (Matthew 25:41-46)
God have mercy on the souls of all those resposible for the cruelty towards Terri Schiavo. There is time to repent, but someday it will be too late.
