I found a bird nest while cleaning the garden yesterday. A small bird patiently weaved a sturdy nest for its family. It made around 800 trips to build a single nest that I found hidden in a bush.
How amazing it is that when some dried twigs and grasses are put together in a new way, they can gain a completely new purpose and become strong enough to protect and support the new life that is contained in the eggs that it holds.
This simple little collection of twigs, grasses, and moss told a powerful story. It is at the same time both very delicate and very strong because of how it is assembled.
When we join together, even when we feel fragile, we have the strength we need to weather any storm.
