Fuzzy heads are now sticking up out of the nest, keeping both mama and papa wrens busy poking food down three hungry beaks. At first I didn’t realize two wrens were feeding the babies, but then I saw them together. I looked it up and male wrens work with the females to feed the youngsters. The birds grow fast and will be trying their wings before long. Then the parents will leave them to fend for themselves in a dangerous world of cats, hawks and other hungry critters. They gave them life, now they’re on their own. Easy enough for birds but not so easy for humans to always see our children as unique individuals in their own right, not just as our son or our daughter. But that’s how God sees them.
