Return of the Nest

Many of you will remember back in July we had a mother bird make her nest on our front door wreath. She laid 5 eggs and they hatched and she cared for them there until the babies grew up and flew away. We were very careful not to disturb them. The day we discovered the nest of babies was the day we conceived our own little baby. And a few weeks later when we discovered the baby birds had flown the coop was the day we discovered little Westly was nesting inside me. We took this nest as a special sign that God had his eye on us (just like He did on the sparrow), that He was answering our prayers, and that His plan was perfect.

There have been no more birds or nests taking up residence on our front door since last July....

Until yesterday!

When Michael and I returned from our afternoon walk on Sunday afternoon, we discovered a brand new nest in the same wreath on our front door! Michael had been praying for a little sign from God that our Westly was coming soon. And this was it!

We also took it as a reminder from God that again He is watching over us, that His timing is perfect for Westly's birthday, and that our dear little boy is on his way. I would not be shocked if Westly came on his due date.

What can I say, God is quite sentimental!
