Word Filled Wednesday - Luke 12:24

During our VBS week, children discovered the nest of a Killdeer who has four speckled eggs the color of a tea latte. The parents placed the nest beside a curb in a busy area, as many Killdeer are known to do. We began to worry about their safety from things like mowers, cars, and rains that collect on the edge of the grass .... so we asked permission to put up a barrier, a protection, for the little family. We were given approval and went off to Lowe's to buy supplies. I like to think God is using us to help care for some of His creatures. Consider this great truth and thank God for putting others into your life, some seen and some unseen, to care for you! I wonder who He is using to watch over me from the "mowers, cars, and heavy rains of life." I'm so thankful He considers us, His children, so valuable. Thanks to Lisa for hosting Word Filled Wednesday this week, so we can soak in more nuggets of God's truth.

Luke 12:24

24 Consider the ravens: They do not sow or reap, they have no storeroom or barn; yet God feeds them. And how much more valuable you are than birds!

Neat story about the kids at VBS. I wonder who God has assigned to watch over me too. This is one Scripture reference HE has been placing before my face lately.

That is lovely. So special and so true and we need to remember that we are to do these things and be God's grace with skin on.
Thanks for your visit.
