Two birds with one stone


You know the phrase, ” kill two birds with one stone”. Well this morning as I was waiting for my youngest daughter to get on the bus, I watched a Mom Robin poking through the flower bed.  First she found some twigs that were moistened from the mornings sprinklers.  She specifically looked for three.  I guess each would serve a purpose at the nest.

Then she cocked her head as if she heard something.  She actually did hear something, a big juicy worm making his way through the wet dew  in the grass. So with the three twigs in her mouth, she went over and captured the worm.  I was amazed that she was so talented and that she could actually maneuver the twigs while catching the worm.  Not one twig fell.

She was not done. She then went over and dug through an area of grass that had recently been rustled up by a gopher.  She found a clump of grass that was about the size of a quarter.  So envision this; here was this bird with, three twigs, a worm and a clump of grass…

I really did not think that she could fly with all that in her mouth but she did and she took it all back to her nest.  I am sure there was something each piece would specifically do for her in the nest.

I was shocked.  She was brilliant. So I guess animals do actually have thinking minds.  God did that for them.  I was in awe.

I thanked God for the example that he had given me today that as humans, we can kill two birds with one stone , but what would you call if for a multi-tasking bird?

I ran in and told my husband the story and he had asked me how did you know it was not a male bird…I was brilliant in my answer.  Men can not multi task.

Just a little food for thought.
