Noah the Dove

>> Monday, October 10, 2011

These little bunnies, about six days old, were attacked by a dog and orphaned. Two out of the litter of five did not survive, and these three were not dong very well. Noah is a non-releasable, one-legged homing pigeon/rock dove that is in the rehab centre. Noah kept going over to the bunny cage and looking in … even sleeping in front of the door to the cage.  

Then, suddenly, there were only two bunnies in the cage. But when Noah moved a bit from the front of the cage … to everyone’s surprise … there was the tiny bunny, under Noah’s wing, sound asleep. That little bunny had crawled through the cage, preferring a featherbed to snuggling up with its littermates.  

Now they are all together and the bunnies are doing great. When the bunnies scoot underneath Noah’s feathers, he carefully extends his wings out to surround them and then they snuggle. When one of them moves and they start sticking out here and there, he gently pushes them back under him with his beak.  

It is beautiful and amazing to see.  

This is what God does with us when we need the warmth and love He offers. He gathers us under His loving wings to a warm cradle of protection. All we need do in return is give Him the thanks and praise for being with us.
