Word Filled Wednesday and Nesting

This is a picture of my garden yesterday morning.
Doesn't grace and peace in abundance sound really good? I'm clinging to this verse today.
I'm also up for a little experiment.
The birds are starting to nest here.
So, when I cleaned out the dryer vent; I saved them a bit. Then I decided to give them a little more to choose from...
Maybe there are a few primitive gals who will like dryer lint and maybe bits of cheese cloth? Maybe one is shabby chic and would like creamy white yarn to line her nest? Maybe some are girlygirls and would think sparkly pink yarn is yummy? We can't forget the bold gals who always choose red. Last but not least, what gal doesn't like to soften her boudoir with a little lace? ..........~ Maybe they'll think I've lost it; will fly away ... and never come back?
I forgot to check their pan later this evening, but earlier; I did notice a few checking it out.

I couldn't tell if this one had something in it's beak or not. I have to work outdoors tomorrow so I'll watch closer. If it appears nothing has been taken, I might cut the yarn in smaller bits and see if they like that better.

We usually find several nests every year. Alot of times they blow out of trees during storms. I almost always see our donkey's hair in them. ~It would totally crack me up to find my favorite gawdy pink yarn in a real bird nest.

Yall have a wonderful day!
May you have grace and peace in abundance through the knowledge of God and of Jesus our LORD!
