“Consider the birds of the air, they neither sow nor reap nor
gather into barns yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of
more value than them?” Matthew 6:26
A lesson for these days from Bluebirds:
We have a pair of nesting Bluebirds. They chose a box beyond our sight from the house, but we can walk to their area of the yard and see them. Last year the first Bluebird brood, they usually have two and in a favorable year three broods, fledged on May 23. This year the incubation of the eggs had not yet started by that date. Due to the slow start of spring, they apparently delayed starting a family until warmer weather would allow needed insects to be plentiful. We were having below freezing nights until May 7, resulting in few spring insects. The nestlings are fed insects by both parents. The year for them as well as for us, has been disruptive. Yet the Bluebirds adjusted and are going on with the next generation. We are also adapting. Much is different yet the normal circle of life continues. We are changing our way of dealing with life as are the Bluebirds; they because of a weather pattern, we because of Covid 19. The lesson is life goes on.
