A Lesson From the Steer Barn

I can’t believe it’s been over a month since we’ve posted – the “Voices” have been busy!

My June consisted of two trips to Virginia to pick up and return grandchildren for our VBS, one book sale, and preparation for a 3-day Festival which I am just finishing today.


If you look carefully, you can see my table set-up for the Wild & Wonderful Festival in Cottageville, Wv. The organizers¬† joked that I was the official “greeter” for the Steer (beef) Barn. I can’t tell you how much my husband enjoyed that!

This barn provided a lesson for me as another vendor and I found first one Barn Swallow egg fragment yesterday, and then another one today. We had noticed the birds flying in and out, and then located the nest. The discarded shells were so fragile; almost translucent. As I examined the shell, I wondered how in the world it had been strong enough to hold and protect the growing bird. I was reminded that God knows what He’s doing, and cares for His creation. The Bible says He knows when a sparrow falls to the ground, and even the number of hairs on our head. He loves each of us – you can trust Him.
