Okay, I usually don't do this but today I've got alot on my mind and decided to share with the 4 or 5 people who check my blog. So here goes. . . .
We use to have 3 small arborvitae on each corner of our house. Each spring these birds would nest in the tree on the south/west side of the house. Last week my husband took the trees down. Immediately these birds began trying to nest behind the lights on our front porch. You must understand that this space behind this light is less than and inch in some places and the bottom is a round pole about one inch in diameter. The first 3 days that they begin building we would knock down their efforts in the hopes of them relocating.
Now please humor my efforts at some not so deep thoughts. . . . But aren't we like these birds from time to time? We know we MUST build our nest. This is a necessity, but sometimes we think it must be on the porch behind the beautiful light fixture instead of the large tree God gave us. Even when the Lord knocks us down, we rebuild right on the light fixture where we think we should be be and completely ignore His attempts to move us to a better place.
I suppose we will continue this fight until they move or the female attempts to lay her eggs on this unsuitable ledge. Thanks for "listening" to my ramblings. :)
