Today is Mother’s Day here in America. I wonder if the beautiful, hard-working avian mother’s have a special day. Maybe, it is the day the little one fledge and finally have “Flown The Coop.”
Seriously, I would like to wish all of my readers a Happy Mother’s Day with this little tribute.
First, the Momma bird lays her eggs:
“Let your father and your mother be glad, And let her who bore you rejoice.” (Proverbs 23:25 NKJV)
Second, momma has to sit on the eggs for awhile:
“For whoever does the will of My Father in heaven is My brother and sister and mother.” (Matthew 12:50 NKJV)
Third, the little ones start to appear:
“Honour thy father and thy mother: and, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.” (Matthew 19:19 KJV)
Fourth, those little birds get hungry:
“Honour thy father and mother; (which is the first commandment with promise;)” (Ephesians 6:2 KJV)
Fifth, they mature (juveniles) and eventually Fly The Coop:
Avian mother’s are finished with that batch. Unlike human mothers whose work has just begun, and will continue through every stage of their children’s lives, even into their grandchildren’s lives.
Happy Mother’s Day!!
“Listen to your father who begot you, And do not despise your mother when she is old.” (Proverbs 23:22 NKJV)
“A wise son makes a father glad, But a foolish man despises his mother.” (Proverbs 15:20 NKJV)
