Our pastor shared President Trump's proclamation during this morning's service. I say, "AMEN!"
Praying you and your family experience God's supernatural grace, peace, protection, and health during this difficult time
I have told you these things, so that in Me you may have [perfect] peace and confidence.
In the world you have tribulation and trials and distress and frustration;
but be of good cheer [take courage; be confident, certain, undaunted]!
For I have overcome the world. [I have deprived it of power to harm you and
have conquered it for you.] John 16:33 AMPC
After we took the winter cover off our air conditioner unit in May we noticed some wrens building a nest there.
Soon Evan noticed a mama wren sitting on her eggs.
A few weeks after that... the baby wrens arrived!
We heard them peeping loudly, stronger every day, for a few weeks...
And then a few days ago.... they flew the coop!
Below are some images of a brave one making his way out of the nest.
Fortunately, they were able to 'explore' on the grill.
Then they hopped down into the bushes below the a/c unit.
Later, they made their way over to the nearby tree...
Shortly after this we heard them peeping over in the neighbor's yard.
It was soooo quiet after they left. We pray they survived and are doing well now!
Thank you for taking care of the wrens, Lord! :-)
I didn't get any good close-ups of the babies, but here's a collage wren from Wren's Summer Song (2010).
Unfortunately, now that the cold weather's here again, the mice have returned to our attic.
We use 'mouse cubes' to trap them, then release them back to the great outdoors... far away from our house!
These babies were kept in a 'holding tank' until they dried off. Hopefully, mouse season will be over soon.
