Robin's Egg Blue
My wife drove me to work this morning and we chatted for a while in the front parking lot. She chuckled to herself pointing out to me a robin feeding on the front lawn. So chubby, this one! Pulling away with gusto on a worm. Just how do they sound them out? The tug of war is always amusing.
Then an image hit me. This pregnant mamma bird would soon have a beautiful sky blue egg or two. The magic of it! A sort of dull gray and orange bird with heaven in her lyrical song gives birth to sky-blue. There is no sense to it. It is just a part of the artistic and diverse fun-and-games of our Creator.
I hadn't thought of those eggs in a while. Soon broken pieces of them will be found on the ground and little imploring red mouths in the nest.
