This Spring we have had at least three nests in areas of our front yard. Two were in trees and one is on the eaves of the garage. The nest pictured was out of my visual realm because I am not one with super long legs. Okay, I am short. I used the video on my phone and lifted it above the nest to observe the changes that were taking place each week as the mama bird flew to get food. Imagine my surprise when I saw this little birdie, mouth wide open, just waiting for some food. The old cliche “Early bird gets the worm” rings true as his siblings are still in the egg.
I would like to think that I am like this little bird in the way that I approach learning. I love to learn! I love to take in anything that I can to keep my mind sharp and also fill it with new things. Recently, I started to learn spanish on a popular phone app. It may not be formal learning but I am learning basic Spanish words, phrases and sentences. Yo como manzanas ~ I eat apples. While I may never actually use it, it is still fun to learn.
In the same way that I love to learn new things, I also love to share with others in the way that might help someone be a better person. We all have a new day in front of us, full of possibility — with God, maybe an impossibility too. In Luke 1:37, it says, “Nothing is impossible with God.” It is always possible to learn something new, no matter what our age. We also need to share our knowledge with others. We need to be like this little bird, waiting in the nest for some nourishment. When we are nourished, we will grow and be able to fly out of the nest, out of our comfort zones, and help others know that God makes all things possible. ¡Aprende algo nuevo! Learn something new!
