We found this Spotted Tohee nest about a foot off the ground behind some ferns. It is amazing how a bird can raise little ones within easy access of predators.

It makes me think about how we can live in a world with so many problems. While it is important to look for ways to make the world better, we can have assurance for our personal situations. By living our lives according to God’s principles, we build up protection from the world.

The righteous person may have many troubles,
but the LORD delivers him from them all
Psalm 34:17

Righteousness guards the person of integrity,
but wickedness overthrows the sinner.
Proverbs 13:6

God reminds us how much more he loves us than the birds. Let’s have peace in the Lord as we strive to follow him.
