Nest Unit  

Posted in , ,

Once again I have to tell you how God is interacting in our lives. It is small things but they are showing me and my children that God knows and cares about every detail of our lives!

I have a journal notebook that I keep the list of recommended books for each unit. I also write in other books we want to read too. I have a section for the book title, the author and the call number. Before we go to the library I go to the library webpage and look up each book and write down the call number. That way when I get there I will already know if the library even has the book and I can begin my search.

Well, I had found the books I was looking for and then as usual I just randomly pick up other books that look good.

This time I picked up NO ROSES FOR HARRY by Gene Zion.

No Roses for Harry!

Cute little book. As the story 'unfolded' I began to see how the Lord directed me on my library book search. I had no idea what this book was about. Let me tell you. This little dog gets a sweater from Granny that he doesn't like. He finds any possible way to get rid of it but has no luck. Finally, a little thread comes loose and it begins to unravel. A bird picks up one end of the string and flies off unraveling the entire sweater. Harry is so happy and the bird is happy cause now the bird has a beautiful nest that looks like Harry's sweater and is so soft and cozy. And Harry no longer feels silly wearing this thing.

I almost teared up. God put this book in our hands with out us asking for it. At the very time we were studying nests!

This IS my Father's world. He cares about everything in it! Yes. Even today. Even you! Even me!

Matthew 6:26 (New International Version)

Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?

Thank you for sharing this! We just finished our nest study. I had read this post on the day I was requesting our books from the library. I added this one to my list and my kids LOVED it!
