More than ever I feel the need of having Thee close to me.
“My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” I will all the more gladly boast of my weaknesses, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. For the sake of Christ, then, I am content with weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions, and calamities; for when I am weak, then I am strong.

A robin redbreast in a cage......
.....Puts all Heaven in a rage.
A dove house fill'd with doves and pigeons
Shudders Hell thro' all its regions,
A dog starv'd at his master's gate
Predicts the ruin of the State.
A horse misus'd upon the road
Calls to Heaven for human blood.
Each outcry of the hunted hare
A fiber from the brain does tear.
But not in this household.
Here is a robin actually nesting in a bird cage, of its own volition.
The bird found its own way into an enclosed workshed and selected the cage, high on a shelf.
It is the ultimate safe spot, free from vermin and predators of any kind; most especially, cats!
