A Verse Hid in Our Hearts…U is for…
“Under it will dwell every kind of bird; in the shade of its branches birds of every sort will nest. And all the trees of the field shall know that I am the Lord.” Ezekial 17:23,24
A Hymn to Impart…“Lilies of the Field”
How Our Week Was Spent
Our neighbors gave us a tent. It has a big door and a little door for Gideon. One day we did our school work in the tent.
Then we didn’t do any more school work because Uncle Ben and Aunt Danielle came to visit (Joel, 8 1/2).
Here is the second installment of our nesting series, a short chronicle of our various dwellings:
Nest One was a basement suite;
Ocean front, with gorgeous view
and included in the rent
was carbon monoxide poisoning for two.
Nest Two was a spruced-up shed
with an odd, chemically smell.
Turns out it was a former lab
where meth-heads used to dwell.
Nest Three was the Parsonage
adjacent to the church.
If we ever missed a service
they didn’t have far to search.
Nest 4 was our city digs;
an apartment -normal, boring.
Nest 5 was a real live house
which sent our spirits soaring.
So much in fact, we got to work
and immediately added chicks.
But 2 weeks after the fourth was born
we moved into Nest 6.
That tiny cabin in the woods
was an answer to my prayer
for a lot less house and a lot more dirt
and that fresh, cool mountain air.
Nest 7 was a lot more house
but still had forest all around
and by then I was quite proud
of the perfect place I’d found.
But God had other plans in mind
and He moved us on once more.
Nest 8 is where we’ve landed now
on this warm, Hawaiian shore.
