New Life

It’s a miracle to behold, whether vegetable, animal, or human.  It is proof positive of God’s love for His creation.  He puts so much care into the unfolding of each creature’s development. 

William came in to let me know that three of the four robin’s eggs had hatched.  By the time I got up there with my camera, all four had finished hatching.

We have been watching another sort of unfolding here – that of our adopted daughter.  She has had a terrible adjustment.  Learned behaviours die hard for some kids.  But new behaviours can be learned.  She is learning that she is capable, that she is smart, that she can be and do whatever she wants.  Slowly, she will learn her own self worth. 

Some little chicks hatch later and with more difficulty.  They may take a bit longer to gain strength and confidence until eventually, they are fledging.  But one day, they’ll fly just like their brothers and sisters.
