I am fiercely protective of the mommy robin who decided most unwisely to build her nest in our tree house. What was she thinking? My kids are outside playing everyday and despite repeated warnings not to touch that nest, well...
I watch her as she flies around the backyard waiting for my kids to go back inside so she can safely sit on her nest again. I can feel her anxiety as she darts about, trying, but unable to fully protect and nurture her little ones.
As mothers, we try our best to protect our children. But there are many dangers out there. So much is out of our control.
But we do have a heavenly Father watching over our children. Do we choose to trust Him, or do we flit about anxiously wondering, "but what if?".
"Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? Yet not one of them will fall to the ground apart from the will of your Father. And even the very hairs on your head are all numbered. So don't be afraid, you are worth more than many sparrows." Matthew 10:29-31
